Here is a chicken dish that is sure to please. It is very simple and the kids can help you put it together. The chicken has a lot of flavor but is light enough that it goes well with just about anything.
6 to 8 pieces of boneless, skinless chicken
1 c Italian Bread Crumbs
1/2 c finely grated Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 c melted Butter/Margarine
2 tsp Dijon Mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
This time I cut large chicken breasts in half, but you can also use thighs.
Combine the bread crumbs, cheese and garlic powder. Sometimes I will substitute panko crumbs but when I do, I add 1/2 Tbs of dried parsley, oregano and Basil to the mix.
Mix the butter with the Worcestershire and mustard. You need to whisk it to get a proper emulsion going.
Dip each piece of chicken into the butter.
When you coat each piece with the bread crumbs, really push the crumbs onto the chicken. This helps them to stay on as it bakes.
Allow the chicken to rest for 10 minutes before placing in a preheated 350 degree oven.
Bake 40 to 45 minutes.
This tastes great for lunch the next day, even cold.
