The fact that the recipe is so simple only makes this dish even more fantastic. Main dishes with cheese crusts seem like a winning dinner to me (this may be why our Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops are one of our favorite dinners).

Since there is less breading on the chicken in Parmesan Crusted Chicken than in Easy Chicken Parmesan, it is a simpler and healthier form of baked chicken. Since they cook quickly, are healthy, and are suitable for the whole family, easy baked chicken recipes are among our favorites.

We enjoy serving this parmesan-crusted chicken with garlic bread, pasta, and an Italian-dressed side salad.

When you’re not creating a Perfect Simple Roast Chicken or an Easy Grilled Chicken, a delightful alternative is to bake the chicken.

Typically, there are two options when working with breading: baking and frying. There is enough fat in this recipe, thanks to the Parmesan cheese and the olive oil, to help the breading brown.

Make sure to space out each piece of chicken from the one after it when baking the chicken. This helps the crust color uniformly while preventing the chicken from boiling during cooking.
