Chicken Parm

Crispy, garlicky, chicken parm. Baked, not fried. Here's my recipe...

- 2-3 chicken breasts; I like to use thin sliced breasts
- olive oil
- 4-5 cloves of garlic, pressed
- 1 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
- Tomato sauce

- Heat olive oil in a pan, add garlic, saute for 1-2 minutes being careful not to burn the garlic
- Mix breadcrumbs with Parmesan cheese on a large plate
- Dip each piece of chicken in the oil/garlic mixture, and then dip into the breadcrumbs to coat
- Put the chicken in a baking dish coated with cooking spray
- Bake on 400 for about 15 minutes, or until chicken is completely cooked
- Top with some mozzarella cheese and sauce and return to the oven. I like to turn the broiler on for a few minutes.

The chicken gets nice and crispy, and I especially love the crispy bits of breading and cheese that end up on the bottom of the dish. I served it with some thin spaghetti and sauce (just jar sauce - no time to make my own tonight, although I want to try to perfect a sauce sometime soon). It's not the best picture, but it tasted great!

  1. I am definitely going to try this. I like the idea of dredging in oil/garlic first. I bet it gave it a great flavor!

  2. Looks great! I am making chicken parm tonight, only on sandwiches!
