After a marathon grocery shopping trip over the weekend, I was in the mood to make something new for dinner last night. I ended up making an awesome chicken recipe I found on Made By Melissa. Then I made up one of the best spaghetti squash recipes ever. Both were delicious...soo delicious in fact, we couldn't wait to eat, so the pictures are after we attacked everything like vultures! I'll add the Spaghetti-Squash Au Gratin recipe a bit later...after I remember it!
Baked Chicken With Parmesan-Garlic Crust
¾ C Fresh Breadcrumbs
½ C Grated Parmesan
3 garlic cloves, minced
½ Tsp Salt
½ Tsp Pepper
3 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
½ Tsp Lemon Juice I added
¼ C Basil, chopped
¼ C Parsley, finely chopped I added
¼ C Lt. Mayo
Preheat oven to 425º. Move oven rack to upper middle.
Combine breadcrumbs, parmesan, garlic, parsley and S&P.
Combine basil, mayo and lemon juice. Spread over chicken breasts. Then sprinkle breadcrumb mixture over chicken. Bake for 18-22 minutes until breadcrumbs are golden brown.
*Note* To make fresh breadcrumbs, pulse a couple slices of bread in the food processor!
