Once upon a time, long, long ago, a mother (that would be me) and her son went to Publix. The mother was looking for something to make for dinner. There was a sample lady there passing out samples of chicken. The mother asked the lady what kind of chicken it was. The lady said, "It's parMEEZEEin chicken. It's made with ParMEEZEEin bread crumbs." Then she showed the mother the Parmesan bread crumbs she used. It took everything the mother and son had not to start laughing at the lady. The chicken was very good so the mother made note of the recipe and picked up Parmesan bread crumbs (then the mother and son laughed and laughed at the lady's pronunciation of Parmesan) and made it for dinner that night. Now when the mother makes Parmesan chicken, the mother and son have a laugh at the lady's expense. They no longer make Parmesan bread crumbs so the mother makes her own.
1 cup Italian Bread crumbs
¼ cup grated Parmesan Cheese
2 Tb. butter
5 – 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray your baking sheet with Pam or use no stick foil.
In a bowl, mix bread crumbs, cheese, and butter. In another bowl, beat an egg with a fork. Dip the chicken in the egg and then coat in the bread crumb mixture. Lay on your pan and cook for 30 minutes or until the juices run clear. Turn your chicken over after 15 minutes.
*You can also exchange the chicken for pork chops if you’d like.
