How to Make Italian Breaded Chicken

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven, or toaster oven, to 350 degrees.
  • 2Wash/clean chicken breasts. Melt enough butter to coat your breasts (1/2 stick usually covers 3 large breasts). I put the butter in a bowl, and melt in microwave.
  • 3Get a flat plate, and pour a pile of breadcrumbs onto the center (sorry, I don't use a measuring cup), perhaps 2 cups.
  • 4Add about 1 cup grated parmesan cheese to the breadcrumbs, and mix together until well blended.
  • 5Coat chicken breast into melted butter, then cover with breadcrumb/parmesan cheese mixture, and place on baking sheet. (No need to spray the sheet; but, lining it with aluminum foil makes for easy cleanup!)
  • 6Continue until all breasts are coated, and bake for 1 hour in preheated oven. Use less time if breasts are thin chicken tenders or cutlets.
