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.
