One of the most common requests I recieve is for easy chicken recipes that are family friendly. Today I am sharing one of those recipes. I mean who doesn't love crispy, cheesy, lemony chicken? It's packed with flavor and other than a little work breading the chicken, it's an easy meal that you can make on a busy weeknight.
The real magic of this recipe comes in the crunchy, lemony breading. It's made with a combination of Panko breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, and lemon pepper seasoning. If you haven't used lemon pepper seasoning before, it's basically a combination of granulated lemon zest and black pepper. One note, it's important to buy a lemon pepper seasoning that uses real lemons and not lemon extract, which can end up tasting a little artificial. Usually I buy this one and love that I can see the actual lemon. You can also make your own by adding lemon zest and black pepper to the breading mixture.
The other critical element of the breading is the Parmesan cheese. It adds a nutty and salty element that pairs perfect with the lemon and pepper. And in my opinion, everything tastes better with a little cheese. This breading is only used on one side of the chicken. Not only does this reduce the amont of breading needed, it also ensures that we don't end up with soggy breading on half the chicken.
