Kimi’s Parmesan Chicken

Back in college my sister-in-law Kim made this for me and it has been a staple in my house ever since. I may have altered it a little over the years without knowing. Last Sunday we were challenged to not go to the store for a week. The idea was to see how prepared you actually were without notice to survive on what is in your house right now in case of a real emergency where you couldn’t run to the store. It’s now Thursday night and we have still made it without going to the store. This is what I made last night. It is so easy and most likely you have everything needed in your pantry.

Kimi’s Parmesan Chicken

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts (I like to butterfly them or pound them with a meat mallet so they are thinner.)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • jar of Spaghetti sauce
  • mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking dish with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Mix the Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, and garlic powder in a shallow dish. It really doesn't matter how much Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs you have. Just make sure it's equal parts. Melt butter in a shallow bowl. Dip the chicken in the melted butter, then the bread crumb mixture then place on the baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes. Spoon spaghetti sauce over the middle of the chicken and sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top for the last 5-10 minutes of baking. Serve over spaghetti with extra warm spaghetti sauce.

  1. We have always loved this one. But yours has a few variations… I’ll have to try it.

  2. Kim was my neighbor in college! Love her and her cooking so much! I have been reading your blog for a while now and I just recently realized that you are family! Such a happy coincidence! :) I love your recipes and can’t wait to try your healthy variation on this!

  3. We make this all the time and love it!! Thanks!

  4. This looks great. You should add a print feature!

    I made this chicken parmesan for my husband and I and we both absolutely loved it. I came back to find the recipe and make it again and it’s gone. Do you know where the chicken parm recipe disappeared to? I will be sure to write it down next time I get my hands on it. So quick, easy, and delicious! It’s a keeper.

  6. I live alone most of the time, so I don’t have many chances to cook for anyone else, but when I visited my mother, sister in law, and nieces yesterday, I had to have a go. I served it with spaghetti and steamed broccoli, and even the finicky toddler ate all her chicken. It was a hit!
