Parmesan Chicken with Zucchini

April 17, 2018

20180312 Parmesan Chicken 02We LOVED this dinner. It was so juicy and flavorful, and it was on the table in very little time. It was a perfect option for a weeknight dinner.

You will need:

  • 1 lb chicken breast (cut to half thickness) or tenders
  • 4 T unsalted butter
  • 1/2 c Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 c plus 2 T finely grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/4 c all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 t pepper
  • 1/2 t garlic powder
  • 2 medium zucchini, cut in half lengthwise and then into 1/2-inch thick, half-moon slices
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Then you will…

  1. Melt the butter and pour onto a plate or shallow dish.
  2. In another shallow dish/plate, combine the Panko with 1/2 cup of the Parmesan, the flour, the pepper, and garlic powder.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat a few tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat.
  4. Dredge the chicken in the melted butter and then coat the chicken in the Panko-Parmesan mixture.
  5. Cook the chicken in the skillet, about 4 minutes per side, until it is crispy and cooked through.
  6. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside on a plate.
  7. Add the zucchini and minced garlic to the hot skillet (add a touch more olive oil if needed).
  8. Saute, scraping up the browned chicken bits, about 4 minutes or until tender. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of Parmesan and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Serve the chicken alongside the zucchini.

20160516 Italian Tenders

These chicken tenders come together easily for a quick dinner. Try them on top of a salad or with your favorite side dishes! If you prefer a smoother crust, you can pulse the breadcrumb mixture in your food processor before breading the tenders.

You will need:

  • 1 lb chicken tenders
  • 2 eggs
  • Splash of water
  • 1/2 c breadcrumbs
  • 3/4 c shredded Parmesan
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1 T dried basil
  • 1 T dried oregano
  • 1 t paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil for cooking
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

Then you will…

  1. Pound each chicken tender under plastic wrap until roughly 1/2-inch thick
  2. In a large plate with a lip, whisk together the eggs with a splash of water until well combined.
  3. Season the egg wash with salt and pepper and whisk to combine.
  4. In a second large plate, mix the breadcrumbs together with the Parmesan, garlic, basil, oregano, paprika, and desired pepper.
  5. Dip each piece of chicken in the egg wash and then dredge them in the Parmesan-breadcrumb mixture.
  6. Heat several tablespoons of olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  7. Cook the chicken about 3 minutes on each side, or until cooked through and golden on the outside. You may need to cook them in batches depending on the size of your skillet.
  8. Serve with fresh lemon wedges.
