142.0…Baked Paprika-Parmesan Chicken
Last night’s dinner was super easy to prepare. Part of the reason was because I had some help from Trader Joe’s. The other reason is because the chicken recipe I made was pretty simple!
This recipe wasn’t as good as other parmesan chicken recipes I’ve tried but it was good nonetheless.
Baked Paprika-Parmesan Chicken (Serves 4)
Recipe slightly adapted from AllRecipes.com
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons milk
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/4 cup butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a shallow baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
- Combine flour, parmesan, paprika, salt, and pepper in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg and milk. Dip the chicken in the egg, then dredge in the flour mixture. Place in the baking dish, and pour the melted butter evenly over the chicken.
- Bake for about 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cheese has browned, and the chicken has cooked.
To go along with it, I tried Trader Joe’s frozen mashed potatoes. I had heard they were good. They were super easy to prepare and turned out pretty good for frozen mashed potatoes. My husband wasn’t a big fan…he said they were too thick. I also used Trader Joe’s microwaveable asparagus. That I’ve used before and really like.
The sun coming in this morning at breakfast was so bright that I couldn’t get a good picture of my breakfast but it was scrambled egg beaters with asparagus and salsa as well as half a grapefruit.
I took the kids to school then stopped at Starbucks for a latte on my way to cooking class at Great News.
Today’s class was entitled “Hot Off the Grill” by my favorite instructor, Phillis Carey.
The first recipe was Bacon Wrapped Grilled Tuna with Lemon Butter Baste.
While it was good, I found it to be surprisingly bland. Maybe I would just add more of the lemon butter baste.
The second recipe was Bacon Beef Burgers with Bacon Balsamic Onions.
This was AMAZING!!!! There was ground up bacon mixed INSIDE the ground beef. With the bacon balsamic onions and the chipotle mayo that went on top….it was mind blowing!
The next recipe was Kansas City-Style BBQ Ribs with Sweet Spice Rub and Honey Spice BBQ Sauce.
These ribs were pretty good but I found the sauce a bit sweet for my taste. I did enjoy learning the super easy technique to make them.
Next up was Spiced Rubbed Chicken Breasts with Quick Chipotle BBQ Sauce with Celery Seed Slaw.
The chicken was delicious! I didn’t care for the slaw. Again…too sweet for me.
The last recipe was Chili-Rubbed Top Sirloin with Corn, Poblano Chili and Sun-Dried Tomato Ragout.
So good. I loved the corn and chili ragout. It would be great on chicken too!
Off to make another new recipe for dinner tonight…
