Grandma's Chicken

This baked chicken recipe is one of my favorite chicken dishes. Delicious chicken coated in bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Sooo easy, but your guests will never know how hard you didn't work!


4 large or 8 medium size skinless, boneless chicken breast halves -
1 egg
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoons garlic powder, divided -
1 cup bread crumbs (I love Panko Bread Crumbs)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley

I marinate my chicken and pork chops in butter milk all day. This makes for very moist chicken.
Then rinse it dry, and put between wax paper and pound dry so all pieces of chicken are the same size.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

In a shallow bowl, beat the egg with salt, pepper and 1 teaspoon garlic powder. In a separate dish, mix bread crumbs with 1 teaspoon of garlic powder and Parmesan cheese. Set aside.

Mix together the melted butter and lemon juice. Pour about 2/3 of the butter mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Tilt pan to coat the bottom. Spread mushrooms in an even layer in the bottom of the dish.

Dip each chicken breast into the egg mixture, then into the bread crumb mixture. Place on top of the mushrooms. Drizzle remaining butter over the chicken, and sprinkle with parsley.

Bake uncovered for 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until chicken is golden brown and juices run clear.

Ymmmmy...sounds perfect for my small stampin' get-together in mid-January. I'll add a salad and I can forget it until it's done. Sounds like I could refrigerate once assembled and then pop into the oven close to lunchtime. Thanks Joan.

This sounds a lot like a chicken I make, but my boys call it wine Chicken, and when you have panfried the chicken pieces like in your recipe, then just saute the mushrooms in 1/3 cup white wine, and then pour all over the chicken and finish them in the oven for 20 minutes. In the last 5 minutes, sprinkle shredded pizza cheese over the whole thing til hot and bubbly! Wonderful.
