Oven Parmesan Chicken Breasts

I try not to use packaged mixes very often. I'd rather make up my own instead. It not only saves money, but is also healthier since I know exactly what's going into it and there are no unnecessary ingredients. This is my family's favorite recipe for breaded chicken breasts. I like to serve it with brown rice and a fresh salad.

2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (I use chicken tenders)
2 tbs melted butter
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp parsley flakes
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

Spray 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Dip chicken in butter. Coat with combined remaining ingredients. Place in prepared pan. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes or until tender. Makes 6 servings.

Sounds yummy! Thanks for sharing. I've been looking for a good breaded chicken recipe and I think I actually have everything. I just might have to try this for dinner tonight.

Yes, that's another thing about this recipe...... it's made up of things you normally have on hand anyway.

They look excellent. I may just have to give those a try. I'm not in love with my current breaded chicken recipe.

I heartily agree - I'd much rather be using a homemade recipe than something from a box. It IS much cheaper, you get to control what's in it, AND you can use what you have laying around that might be on the verge of going stale (which I just did tonight). There's something really satisfying in that for me!

Thank you for sharing, and I'm glad I found you on Foodie Friday!
