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


  • 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.
  • Next, melt the butter in a shallow dish using your microwave.
  • In another shallow dish, combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan, and garlic powder. Mix until well combined.
  • Next, take a piece of chicken and dip it in the melted butter, then dip it in the cheese and bread crumb mixture.
  • Make sure to coat the chicken evenly with both the butter and the bread crumbs!
  • Then place the coated chicken in a 9”x13” baking pan. Continue this process until all the chicken is prepped in the baking pan.
  • Bake at 350° for 45 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the bread crumb coating is nicely browned.
  • Serve with rice, a salad, mashed potatoes, or whatever sounds good to you!


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.
