If you know me by now, you know I’m all about doing things easy and cheap, without losing quality. Here is a yummy recipe for a quick chicken dinner that is easy to make and doesn’t involve a bunch of expensive ingredients! Enjoy.
Breaded Parmesan Chicken
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut in half)
- 1/2 c. seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp olive oil (or vegetable oil)
Flatten chicken to about 1/4 in. thick ( I like to use a measuring cup to beat it down). In a shallow container combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan, garlic, and oregano. In another shallow bowl beat an egg. Dip the chicken into the egg to coat, then into the seasoning mixture, making sure to coat both sides well. In a large skillet, brown the chicken in butter and oil over medium heat for about 3-5 min. on each side, or until cooked through.
I like serving this with Lemon-Dill Buttered Carrots.
