Oven Fried Parmesan Chicken

Submitted by: NANADEB49

Introduction

These come out very moist. I found this on the back of a grocery store ad and made a few changes. The original called for 2 tsp of Thyme, 1/4 c of Parmesan, & 2 c of cornflakes. I measured after I dipped and found I had a good 1/2 c of mixture left so I cut the recipe back accordingly.

* For those of you that are salt restricted- You might want to leave out the salt as there's probably enough in the Parmesan cheese. I just sprinkled a little salt over the bowl.

I also extended the cooking time. The original time was 20 mins.

    Corn flakes add a truly wonderful crunch to this dish. I omitted the salt, and the taste was great. This is an easy recipe that will keep your chicken moist and flavorful. Thank you! - 6/7/09

    This is the best recipe I've found on here so far. The chicken really is moist, especially for a breast. Mildly fussy with the breading, but not bad at all. And tastes great! - 6/3/09

    These were great. I made them tonight. My six-year-old really liked them. I added a bit of garlic powder and think that a little more seasoning would even be better. - 5/27/09

    Great. I spread some low-fat mayo on each piece instead of the egg white mix. The mayo also makes for juicy chicken. - 5/26/09

    My kids liked this cut into "nuggets" instead of whole breasts. I reduced the baking time by about 5 minutes. I found the flavor very satisfying. - 5/26/09

    I used finely chopped parsley as my herb and the zest of a lemon. Mix this well with the C/Flakes and it was to die for especially when I baked a few whole garlic cloves with the chicken for the sweetness. Very nice indeed served with Vegtables of your choice. - 6/13/09

    This was really good, and I was shocked to watch my snobby husband but away two half-breasts. It was only afterward that I told them the crispy coating was corn flakes (actually Total...). I had to make a double-batch of the coating, added garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Really good. - 6/13/09
