Baked Parmesan Paprika Chicken

It is half-way through the month of January and the newness of the new year has already started to fade with some. Did you make any resolutions for the new year? I think it is important to make goals, but not make them unattainable. Cooking at home and meal planning is a very easy way to get used to a healthy eating lifestyle.

This chicken is so good. It is baked instead of fried and it is so crispy and delicious, you will not miss the grease at all. The cheese melts into the crust and is so flavorful. You can slice this chicken up and serve over your favorite salad or roast some veggies for an easy dinner.

1/4 cup of Flour
1/2 cup of Parmesan Cheese, grated
2 teaspoons of Paprika
1/2 teaspoon of Salt
1/2 teaspoon of Pepper
1 Egg, beaten
2 tablespoons of Milk
4 Chicken Breasts, boneless and skinless
1/4 cup of Butter, melted

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum and place a wire rack on top of it.

Next, in a shallow baking dish, combine the flour, cheese, paprika, salt, and pepper. In another shallow baking dish, combine the egg and milk.

Now, pound the chicken to make sure it is even thickness all the way through. Dip the chicken in the egg, then the flour, and place onto the wire rack. Pour the butter over the chicken.

Bake for 30-45 minutes until the chicken is completely cooked through and the internal temperature is at 165.


Happy Cooking,
