Parmesan Crusted Chicken
- 4 chicken breasts (1.25-1.5 lbs)
- 1 egg
- 2 Tablespoons milk
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup.
If chicken breasts are thick, pound them with a meat mallet until they are about 1/2 inch thick. (This will make the chicken super tender.)
Whisk the egg and milk together in a shallow dish that you can dip the chicken breasts in.
In another shallow dish, combine bread crumbs, cheese, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
One at a time, dip chicken breasts in egg mixture until completely coated and then dip in bread crumb mixture until completely coated.
Place chicken on prepared baking sheet. Evenly sprinkle any leftover bread crumb mixture over the tops of the chicken.
Evenly drizzle the melted butter over the tops of the chicken.
Bake 20-25 minutes or until cooked through.
