Yummiest Chicken Ever

1 c. Italian bread crumbs
1 c. Parmesan cheese
1 package dry Italian salad dressing mix

Mix all three dry ingredients together

Melt 1/2 c. butter

Dip six chicken breasts in butter then roll in dry mixture. Place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with Pam. Sprinkle remaining breadcrumb mixture over chicken. Bake at 35o degrees for 1 hour.

From whence it came: This is my very own recipe. Yep, I made this one up myself, and just let me tell you that I am pretty stinkin' proud of me. It's the only recipe I've really every created. Darn, I have such a guilty conscience, I have to confess something now or I won't be able to sleep tonight. Janice Luncford (you might remember me mentioning her in my original post as one of the very best cooks I know) well, Janice gave me a really great recipe called Chicken Pesto that was a bit complicated and a bit more expensive to make. It was so good, but I wanted to find a way to simplify it, so I took some of the ideas from her recipe and made my own. So Janice does get a tiny shout out on this one.

Why it's blogable: Because it's just what the title says, the yummiest chicken ever. My kids love it! And people, any recipe that has five ingredients and takes five minutes to put together is a good thing.

A tip for ya: I really like to make it with chicken tenders rather than whole breasts. It cooks faster, and you get more breading in each bite. I'm a big fan of chicken tenders!

Hope you enjoy stirring it up!


  1. and let me tell you how to spice it up some..and my kids love this... we fry it first, thenwe get some prociutto/ham and provolone cheese and put it on top... and cover with tomato sauce..the barilla is perfect, then put in the oven for about 15 minutes! it is so yummy!
