Tuesday meal series....

6 miles on the schedule this morning.  It was a perfect morning for it too.  Nice outside and not freezing for once!  I think spring might be around the corner.  You know, after that big snowstorm we haven't had yet.

Kind of looks like above but without the cheese on top

This next recipe is completely awesome!  I love this Chicken recipe and you will too.  The chicken comes out moist and tasty!  We don't typically eat it with pasta or sauce but you could.  It's outstanding just as is.

Baked Chicken Parmesan

Vegetable oil spray
4 slices whole-wheat bread
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons shredded or grated Parmesan cheese(1.5 ounces)
1 1/2 tablespoons finely snipped fresh parsley
1/2 tablespoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled
1/2 cup fat-free or low-fat buttermilk
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves(about 4 ounces each)

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.  Lightly spray a rectangular baking sheet and slightly smaller cooling rack with vegetable oil spray.  Put the rack on the baking sheet.  Set aside.

In a food processor or blender, process the bread into fine crumbs.  Pour into a shallow bowl.  Stir the Parmesan, parsley, paprika, garlic powder, and thyme into the crumbs.

Pour the buttermilk into a shallow bowl.

Set the bowl with the buttermilk, the bowl with the crumbs, and the baking sheet and rack in a row, assembly-line fashion.

Discard all the visible fat from the chicken.  Dip the Chicken into the buttermilk, shaking off the excess liquid.  Coat the crumbs, shaking off excess crumbs.  Put the chicken on the rack.  Lightly spray each breast with vegetable oil spray.

Bake for 15 minutes.  Turn over and bake for 10 minutes, or until no longer pink in the center.

  1. Hey Jeff, I've been following your blog for a few months now, you are awesome and so inspiring! I wanted to finally comment to let you know that I made this chicken parmesan recipe for me and my husband tonight and we both absolutely loved it. It's definitely going to become a regular thing in our household. Thanks for posting!

    1. Jen - thanks for following along and I'm happy you enjoyed it. I'm trying to remember to take actual pictures of the meal but all these post are ones we typically make regularly and really enjoy.
