I believe that I've mentioned that I've been getting ideas for my weekly menu from Confessions of a Homeschooler. She posts a monthly meal calendar at the beginning of each month and it has really inspired me AND has given me some new, great, easy recipes! That's where this meal comes from and it is a new favorite!
Breaded Chicken with Parsley Potatoes
adapted from Confessions of a Homeschooler
This recipe was a very quick family favorite - the kids ate everything and the adults love it too :-) I actually used bone-in chicken thighs because they were so much more less expensive then boneless. I did pull off the skin though :-) Also, the potatoes - they are fantastic - I have never had success with "flavored" potatoes - they always seem so bland - but this recipe really, truly reminds me of what you get in a restaurant!
- 6 boneless/skinless chicken thighs (can substitute with chicken breasts, but let’s face it, they’re just not as yummy!)
- 1/2 c. seasoned bread crumbs (I use Progresso Italian)
- 1/4 c. shredded parmesan cheese
- 1 egg (beaten)
- 1/2 c. milk
- olive oil
Step 2: Mix breadcrumbs & shredded Parmesan cheese in shallow bowl. Beat egg and milk together in another shallow bowl. Dip each chicken breast into egg mixture then coat with bread crumbs and place into 9×13 pan.
Step 3: Drizzle breaded chicken breasts with olive oil and bake at 350 for approx 45 minutes or until golden brown
- 3 russet potatoes (can substitute with red potatoes)
- 1 T parsley
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- 1 tsp onion salt
Step 2: Wash potatoes thoroughly, then dice into about 1” pieces and place in boiling water. Cook approximately 15 minutes or until tender. Drain water.
Step 3: Meanwhile, melt approx 4tbs of butter in saute pan on low. Add garlic salt, onion salt and parsley. (Can add more of any ingredient to taste)
Step 4: Stir cooked potatoes into butter mixture until coated well and serve!
Now, I "promised" you a bonus recipe. We had this chicken dish on a Sunday after church; I try to plan our main meal for "lunch" and then make dinner something simple. I cooked a couple of extra chicken thighs and we made some awesome Chicken Quesadillas for dinner!
