Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups bread crumbs*
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup melted butter

Instructions:

  1. I usually start by cutting each chicken breast in half lengthwise, but it’s just a personal preference. Feel free to keep them whole if you prefer.
  2. Next, melt the butter in a shallow dish using your microwave.
  3. In another shallow dish, combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan, and garlic powder. Mix until well combined.
  4. Next, take a piece of chicken and dip it in the melted butter, then dip it in the cheese and bread crumb mixture.
  5. Make sure to coat the chicken evenly with both the butter and the bread crumbs!
  6. Then place the coated chicken in a 9”x13” baking pan. Continue this process until all the chicken is prepped in the baking pan.
  7. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the bread crumb coating is nicely browned.
  8. Serve with rice, a salad, mashed potatoes, or whatever sounds good to you!

Recipe Notes:

It’s easy to make this recipe gluten free! Just toast up a couple of slices of gluten free sandwich bread, then toss them in your blender or food processor and pulse until you have coarse crumbs.
