This Tuesday, I’m not thinking about too much too serious (except for dessert, of which I eat a lot recently). The past few days, I end a day with a sweet treat and start right up the next morning with a craving for the same thing.
Whether it’s fruit, chocolate bar, or baked treats. Or, more commonly, all three!
While I like both sweet and savory foods, my taste buds definitely tilt to the sweeter side. So, I guess now would be a great time for obligatory savory dish just to cut down some of the sugar cravings. Like if it’s possible to … :)
I’ve been very lazy about cooking lately and even lazier about searching for easy-to-make dishes. Fortunately, I keep a pin board with ** FOOD BLOGGERS BEST ** recipes that I can always fall back on and see if any leap out at me.
With 10 minutes of prep time and around 40 minutes of baking time – it’s totally true and totally amazing, making this dinner is probably even less work than going out or getting takeout, and– HELLO! It’s Chicken breasts, parmesan and paprika baked in the oven with a drizzle of butter!

What’s not to love?!

Ingredients

  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated (Fresh is better but use pregrated if necessary)
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Set up 2 medium sized bowls.
  3. Beat 2 eggs in first bowl.
  4. Mix flour, parmesan, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a second bowl.
  5. Place a wire rack on a large baking sheet and brush the rack with oil.
  6. Dip chicken, 1 breast at a time, in egg mixture, then in parmesan/paprika mixture,
  7. turning to evenly coat both sides of each breast with each ingredient.
  8. Place on prepared baking sheet, in a single layer.
  9. Pour the melted butter evenly over the chicken.
  10. Bake for about 40-45 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cheese has browned, and the chicken has cooked.
  11. You can also finish them off under the broiler for a minute or two to get them extra browned on top.
  12. Serve with a veggie like these delicious fresh broccoli that I steamed.
  13. Season with a dash of fresh parsley, if desired.

  1. Delicious chicken Sarah. I made this tonight for dinner and it was wonderful. I sprinkled mine with chopped fresh basil leaves instead of the parsley, yet I’m sure the parsley would have been good too! Thanks for sharing with us.
