Parmesan Chicken with Sautéed Green Beans & Tomato/Mozzarella Salad

I was on deck for dinner last night so I decided to prepare one of Ditalini’s favorites: Parmesan chicken. Sautéed green beans and tomato/mozzarella salad seemed like they would go well with the chicken, and you know what? They did. This is an easy little dinner to prepare, and one I’ve long promised to add to this blog:

Ingredients

Parmesan Chicken

  • 3 or 4 skinned chicken breasts
  • 1/3 stick butter, melted
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp seasoned bread crumbs

  • 3 strips bacon, cut up
  • 1/4 yellow onion, chopped
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, sliced

Tomato/Mozzarella Salad

Preparing the chicken

Preparing the chicken

Melt the butter in a bowl. Mix Parmesan cheese & bread crumbs, spread on a sheet of waxed paper. Rinse the chicken breasts & pat dry. Dip each chicken breast in melted butter, roll in cheese/bread crumb mix until coated, place in oven-proof dish. Drizzle leftover butter and sprinkle leftover cheese/bread crumb mix over top of chicken . Bake in 425-degree oven for 25 minutes.
