Love, love, love this chicken... Had an appointment today, so wanted something that would be quick tonight. I let the chicken brine while gone. It was a snap to throw together when I got home. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Wow, these are flavorful chicken breasts. We love the breading method. The crust fries up nice and crispy and keeps the meat juicy. One of the keys to the flavor is the brine. It moistens the chicken and adds flavor to the white meat. This is simple enough to make every day but good enough for a special occasion. Serve with a salad or simple side for a delicious dinner.

Test Kitchen Tips
Make sure not to get the grease too hot or the middle of the chicken will be undercooked and the crust overcooked.
  • Chicken broth and salt in a bowl.
    In a medium bowl, combine chicken broth and salt.
  • Pounding chicken breasts thinner with a mallet.
    Pound each chicken breast to 1/2 inch thick with a meat mallet.
  • Chicken breasts added to the chicken broth.
    Add the chicken to the bowl of broth. Cover and chill for about 2-3 hours.
  • Drying off the chicken breasts.
    Take the chicken from the broth and dry off well with paper towels.
  • Flour in a pie plate.
    Pour the flour onto a shallow plate. I usually use a pie plate.
  • Beaten eggs in a bowl.
    Beat eggs lightly in a bowl.
  • Panko crumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic/parsley seasoning in a bowl.
    Combine the Panko crumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic/parsley seasoning in another shallow dish.

    To bread the chicken, coat well with flour.
  • Chicken coated in egg.
    Then egg.
  • Chicken coated in Parmesan mixture.
    Lastly, coat with the Parmesan mixture.

    Brown the chicken breast for 4 to 5 min per side or until brown and juices no longer run pink. Enjoy!
