Parmesan Crusted Chicken
Parmesan Crusted Chicken with a crunchy breading made with Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, basil, oregano, and garlic makes the best crispy baked chicken breast.
What you need:
- 1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into cutlets and pounded thin (or tenders)
- 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
- 4 egg whites (or 2 eggs)
- 1 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
- 1 tbsp oregano
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Prepare all your ingredients.
In a shallow bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, basil, oregano, garlic powder, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Mix together well.
In another shallow bowl, pour in the egg whites. Set up your breading station so that you can easily coat all the chicken breast in the Parmesan breading.
Take out your pounded chicken tenders and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Then dip the chicken into the egg. Make sure to let the excess egg drip off. This helps ensure they get crispy.
Then press the chicken into the Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs to coat. Make sure the chicken is fully coated.
Place the chicken on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Make sure they are in a single layer.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
