Buttery Parmesan Chicken

A rich, cheesy breading locks in this chicken's natural juices, making it moist and tempting every time. Because it can be made in advance, I rely on it often during the week and when entertaining. —Kathie Landmann, Lexington Park, Maryland

    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup Dijon, yellow or country-style mustard

Directions

  • Combine cheese, bread crumbs and butter. Coat chicken breasts with mustard, then dip into crumb mixture. Place breaded chicken in a 13x9-in. baking pan. Bake at 425° until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads 165°, about 15 minutes.
Editor's Note
To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.
