Baked Parmesan and Herb Crusted Chicken

Easy baked Parmesan and herb crusted chicken breasts are baked in the oven with panko breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and sage.

I love fried chicken as much as the next girl. And super crispy skin is one of the BEST parts of fried chicken. Bad and bad, I know. Buuut you know you can kinda have the same thing without the frying. I won’t lie and say it’s as good as fried chicken but the breading on this chicken is definitely crispy. The answer is by baking it with panko breadcrumbs. Because these breadcrumbs make everything crispy, even sans fried.

It worked for panko crusted tilapia. It’ll work for chicken breasts. And since it’s chicken we’re messing around with now, I’ll just go and add a few herbs that’ll make ordinary chicken into wow chicken. Just a little bit of Italian seasoning here and oh maybe some sage too.

Interested yet? No? How about if we add some Parmesan? Now that’s gotta be good. And it all comes together pretty darn easy. Dip it in egg and then roll it in the panko Parmesan herbed breading mix and bake! Yum!

So hash brown egg nests with avocado. What in the world are they and do they only come around Easter? I know, I know. Bad attempt at funny. I’m really horrible at telling jokes.

Hibachi Noodles

If someone were to ask me what my most popular recipe was, I would grunt and say Hibachi rice with yum yum sauce. And while grunting and saying yum yum in the same sentence probably doesn’t have the effect I want, the numbers don’t lie. Every single day I have people coming in from Google on…

Thai Beef Salad

I’ve been slightly more open-minded towards Asian fusion stuff after having a taste of Applebees Asian chicken salad. It was awhile ago but that flavorsplosion in my mouth is hard to forget.
