Baked Parmesan Garlic Chicken

Okay, so I know I’m not a food blogger but when I made dinner the other night, I knew I had to share this with you. I combined two of my favorite (simple) recipes and made the most delicious chicken on the planet! Seriously. I was shocked at my mad cooking skills! My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

For the marinade, combine ingredients in a ziplock bag:
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1 Tbs of lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
Let marinate for a few hours.
Breading and Baking:
  1. 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  2. 1 package Good Seasons Italian Dressing mix
  3. 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  4. 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Mix cheese, dressing mix and garlic powder.
  3. Remove chicken from marinade and coat with dry mixture. Place in shallow baking dish.
  4. Bake 20 to 25 min. or until chicken is no longer pink in the center.
Combine it with a salad and your favorite side and voila, the perfect dinner! My husband told me I need to make this more often. He claimed it was the best chicken he’s ever had; homemade or even at a restaurant! I was flattered, but agreed! 🙂 It was SO EASY and pretty healthy even! We will definitely be having this a couple times a month.
Make this for dinner, like tonight!!!

    Hey, I tried this for dinner last night! It was pretty good! The boyfriend added marinara sauce and two pieces of bread and made it a sandwich which was excellent, but we agreed it needed a little more flavor. That could have been my mistake in using Mrs. Dash seasoning instead of the Italian dressing mix, whoops. Thanks for the recipe!

    The Four Season(ing)s: Baked Parmesan Garlic Chicken | Foodie Fox
    October 11, 2013 at 12:14 am

    […] I love garlic chicken. It’s in my top three choices when ordering Chinese takeout. As delicious as the spicy chicken soaked in the thick garlic marinade is, let’s be honest…it’s horrible for you. Between the msg and sodium, all I can say is my body never stood a chance.  Though opting for a more Italian approach, I strove to reinvent the garlic chicken idea and came up with something light, baked and spiced just right. This recipe from the blog Classy Cutter is dressed down casual, yet sophisticated enough to make it seem like you put a whole lot of effort into it (kind of like my work outfit…). The key to this recipe is reserving enough prep time (or starting the day or night before), as the chicken needs to sit in the marinade for at least three hours. Since I didn’t prepare early enough, my chicken only got two hours worth of marinating time and while it was delicious, I can appreciate how the longer it is allowed to spend, the better it will taste. I would also suggest using plain Italian seasoning, instead of purchasing the dry salad dressing mix that the recipe calls for originally. While I was able to find the mix, I was disheartened to see that the mix alone was 350 mcg of sodium… not horrible, but pretty yucky. While this may provide a great deal of the flavor, it definitely doesn’t provide any health benefits and a combination of the four seasonings: salt, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese provided plenty kick! Lastly, be sure to cut through the chicken after the 25 minutes to ensure that it is fully cooked through. If you love garlic, strive to avoid frying anything or just want to find a use for Italian seasoning, be sure to ready your pan and get baking!

    Looks delicious, and I’ve made similar recipes that were indeed easy and yummy. I think the recipe would be more clear if the chicken were listed in the first group of ingredients, so that the instruction to “marinade” would clearly refer to the chicken. As written, it looks like the chicken isn’t used until time to cook. I’m sure anyone familiar with cooking would know this, but just in case a newbie were trying the recipe, that would help.

    My husband and I make this chicken at least once or twice a month! It’s one of our favorite go to meals now. We use Greek yogurt instead of milk and love the extra amount of creaminess it adds!

    This dish is FANTASTIC! I made it today for my kids and I and my parents. It was a hit from the 2 year old to the 82 year old! Everyone had seconds and wanted thirds but there wasn’t any left! Hands down, this is the BEST chicken recipe I’ve ever tried. Perfect seasonings and juicy! I served mine with mashed potatoes and green beans. This will definitely be in heavy rotation at my house 🙂

    I had a big problem with this recipe….there wasn’t enough! My family, all five of us, even the one year old, loved this! I also thickened the sauce a bit and even added a capful of real bourbon! we will be making this again really soon!

    I took KristieKatz advice and used the crockpot method because I had a playdate scheduled and needed to have something for dinner. I wish I had time to brown the legs before I put them in the crockpot, but I browned up the legs when I got home, and wound up thickening the sauce on high for 35 minutes so it reached the glaze point. I doubled the recipe, used 13 legs and served rice noodles on the side. My husband said that the noodles need to be a staple in our dinners. Great taste, my 5 year old licked her hands clean after every bite and I haven’t seen her messier since she was a toddler eating spaghetti. And my one year old did a happy dance after every bite. Great recipe, next time I’m going to try this with Alton Brown’s baked brown rice.

    Just finished making this. Boy, is it good, lip-smakin’ in fact! After reading the reviews, I decided a couple of changes…I used boneless/skinless chicken thighs cut into pieces, and dredged in some cornstarch. (1 tablespoon = 2 thighs) I boiled down the sauce a bit before adding the chicken (approx. 15 minutes), and once I added chicken it cooked very quickly. (20 minutes). Other then that, I did everything else the same and it was Awesome with a capital
