Come to the Table: Parmesan Chicken
I feel like I say this every week, but I love this recipe! It is a special one and near and dear to my heart. Parmesan Chicken is one of my most favorite meals from growing up that my mom would make and I am excited to be sharing it with you today.
One of my favorite memories from growing up is we always had dinner around the table as a family every day. At the time I didn't think much of it. It was normal and just what we did. Mom would make dinner and we would all eat together. Now I didn't get a cell phone until I was a sophomore in high school and my brother and I shared it (the whole you can have it Mon-Wed-Frid and I will have it Tue-Thur and we will switch next week kinda thing....we both didn't like it but made it work for a bit haha), so we didn't have the digital distractions I feel are present today. However, there is and will always be something distracting us. I am thankful my parents made that a priory now and cherish what I learned about living life around the table with people you love from an early age.
Just like everyone else we had the handful of weekly rotation meals. Parmesan Chicken was always a favorite. It instantly brings me back when I put a bite in my mouth. This recipe is so simple and easy but the flavor pay off will blow your mind.
Only a couple of staple ingredients are needed:
It is as simple as brushing a little melted butter on the chicken then dipping into a breadcrumb mixture. Repeat until all tenders are coated nicely in all of that goodness and place in the oven to bake. What comes out is tender chicken loaded with simple flavors that will have you coming back for seconds and thirds.
This is a perfect weeknight meal for a family, just 2 people or to make for a dinner party because everyone will love it. They make great leftovers and I love slicing them up the next day and tossing on a salad. It is one of those no-recipe recipes, which are my FAV! A little breadcrumb, a little parm, salt, pepper, garlic powder.....eyeball it all and it will turn out just fine.
I am always looking for new easy meals to add to the "what do you want for dinner this week" rotation.
