Crispy Breaded Baked Chicken Breast
Crispy Breaded Baked Chicken Breast is a really great meal to serve when your friends and family members are coming over for dinner because we so rarely indulge ourselves in a fried meal. So, do it with this dish, and then surprise them when you tell them what you have really done. That is because this dish is not actually fried, but baked, so the surprise of this crispy delight will be all yours to share. So make this dinner for your friends, and make up a big batch of these crispy (but baked) chicken pieces that you and your family will love. And they will love you for doing it. In addition, this recipe delivers another surprise, giving you a quick sauce that you can make and serve over top of the crispy breaded baked chicken breasts. So get ready to bake your chicken crispy enough so that every one will believe it is fried, and then double spoil them with a wonderful and creamy sauce that you can put on top.
This chicken dinner is really easy to pull together. And although the recipe calls for chicken breast, do not be afraid to use the dark parts of the chicken such as the thighs and legs. It can some times be a little harder to find dark chicken that is deboned, but you could also just make this dish with the bone intact. All that means is that you get to pick the meat up with your fingers to eat it, and that is always the best way to eat fried food (even if this chicken is really oven baked). Baked chicken is called finger licking good cooking for a good reason! Chicken is also a high protein food that unfairly earned a bad reputation for awhile because of the relatively high cholesterol count in the meat. However, once we learned that it is the fat count (of the monounsaturated fat), and not the cholesterol count, that matters, chicken once again became a popular meat to serve at the dinner table (well, and at lunch or the breakfast table, too). It is a lean and delicious meat that also works with all kinds of seasonings and cooking methods. In this recipe it is paired with cheese and breading then baked to produce a crispy, fried like dish that you and your family will just gobble up.
Treat your family and friends to this really crispy chicken dinner. They will think it is fried (and no need to tell them anything different). Pair this chicken dish with either rice or potatoes, as you like, and as your family prefers. Almost any vegetable will work well, too, including a pot pourri of peppers, onion and garlic or simple steamed greens, or beans and almonds (always fabulous) or even carrots, baked or steamed, as you like them. That is also one of the joys of chicken. It goes well with just about any food that you bake with it. This is a great recipe that will yield you plenty of kudos from the family and any friends you have at the dinner table tonight. It is quick and easy to make, and affordable. There is not much to complain about when you have all of these plusses in one simple dish. Keep the recipe book marked and enjoy it soon.
