Actually today was Aaron's Friday, he took tommorrow off so we could take the boys to the the Puyallup Fair. I am so giddy with excitement over this it's kind of silly. It's just that Nolan is at the perfect age for seeing the animals and such. I have emptied my memory card and charged up the batteries, so expect a lot of boring fair pics in the week(s) to come, lol.
The main reason I am posting tonight though is because I made my favorite dinner tonight, and decided to share the recipe for anyone who wants it. It's one of the easiest things I've ever made an SO FREAKIN GOOD. My mom has made it several times in the past for us, and I made it for the first time tonight.
I give you... Parmesan Chicken
recipe can be found here:
How you know the dinner was a hit... there's none left!!!
Sethy liked it too :)
Here brother, let me help you
Recipe if you don't feel like clicking on the link...
1 clove garlic, minced
1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup or 1/4 pound), melted (I used 1.5 sticks of margarine)
1 cup dried bread crumbs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese (or 2/3 cup if you are using a Microplane zester) (I used 2/3 cup of the finely grated parmesan in the green can)
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley (I used dried)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
A large pinch of Italian seasoning (herb mix)
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 lbs of skinless, boneless, chicken meat, cut into pieces no larger than 2x2 inches
1 Preheat oven to 450°F.
2 In a bowl, combine the minced garlic with the melted butter. In another bowl mix together the bread crumbs, Parmesan, parsley, salt, garlic salt, Italian seasoning, and pepper. Dip chicken pieces into garlic butter, then into crumb mixture to coat.
3 Place coated chicken pieces on to a 9x13 baking dish. Try to leave a little room between each piece. Drizzle with remaining garlic butter and bake uncovered 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear. Note that the chicken will get much more browned on the bottom side than on the top.
Took me all of 10 minutes to prepare, 15 to cook... It was so easy and good it was sinful, now go make, enjoy and thank me later ;)
