Parmesan Baked “Fried” Chicken Breasts

Last night for dinner I wanted to try something different with the chicken breasts I was making for dinner.  I didn’t want to actually fry anything so I made baked fried chicken!



These were my ingredients.


I placed the chicken breasts in a large baggie with the ranch dressing and shook it until they were all fully coated.


Next I mixed the remaining ingredients, except for the butter/margarine, in another large baggie.


I put the chicken breasts in the bag with the bread crumb mixture, one at a time, and shook the bag making sure each one was fully coated. Then I placed them in my parchment paper lined pan.


I poured the melted butter/margarine over the chicken breasts, trying to coat them evenly.


And then baked them in a 400 degree oven for about 40 minutes, then broiled them on high broil temperature for another 10 minutes to crisp them up.
