Baked Paprika Parmesan Chicken
For the meat-lovers amongst us, we all love easy baked chicken breast recipes once in a while, especially when they’re done right. This Baked Paprika Parmesan Chicken is one such chicken recipe that is so right, you can’t possibly go wrong with it. Not only that, but it’s a healthy chicken recipe as well, simply because it involves boneless, skinless chicken breasts that are baked, rather than fried, cutting back on potential cholesterol content and giving you nothing but pure nutrients and delicious flavour.
Before we begin cooking chicken in the kitchen, however, it’s always good practice to brush up on our food safety knowledge, especially when we’re cooking meats like chicken, pork, beef, and fish. Our food safety always begins at the supermarket, when we’re selecting our meat and putting it into the shopping cart. It’s always important to keep different types of meat separate in order to avoid cross-contamination. This is also why the cashier at the checkout will wrap your meats and fish separately. He or she obviously has learned the importance of food safety measures as well. When you get home from the store, it’s a good idea to put your meat into the fridge immediately if you are going to cook it soon, or into the freezer or deep freeze if you don’t need it right away. Keeping your meats chilled will keep bacteria from growing on them and will protect you and your family from food-borne illnesses. The same goes for leftovers – always be sure to refrigerate meat-based dishes immediately after a meal to avoid any kind of contamination.

Before you begin cooking your healthy baked chicken breast recipe, it’s also a very good plan to wash your hands at least 20 seconds before you start handling the raw chicken cutlets. Once you’ve battered the chicken and placed it in the pan, then you need to wash your hands once again. This will keep you from spreading any potential bacteria around your kitchen or onto other foods. To make this easier, you can keep a hand dispenser of soap near the sink as well as a hand towel. Once your chicken is safely in the oven, be sure to bake it at the temperature and amount of time given in the recipe – in this case, 400 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes. If you’re planning on taking this baked chicken meal to a family gathering or potluck, be sure to keep it hot as you are transporting it. To do this, you can wrap it in foil or keep it in a thermal container that is well-insulated. These are just a few food safe tips and tricks that will help ensure you’re cooking the safest, healthiest food in your kitchen, and serving it to your family, friends, and guests.
