W-W Parmesan Chicken.

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (whole wheat or panko for a crunchier coating)
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or cooking spray

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  2. In a shallow dish, combine the grated Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine.
  3. Dip each chicken breast into the Parmesan mixture, pressing down gently to coat both sides evenly. Place the coated chicken breasts on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Drizzle the olive oil evenly over the chicken breasts or spray them lightly with cooking spray. This will help them brown and crisp up in the oven.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the coating is golden brown and crispy.
  6. Remove from the oven and let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving.
  7. Serve your W-W Parmesan Chicken with your favorite side dishes, such as steamed vegetables, salad, or whole wheat pasta.
