As my first post after my week off, I wanted to post a quick and easy recipe that my family loves…this Parmesan Breadcrumb Chicken. In my not so professional opinion, chicken breast is one of the hardest parts of the chicken to cook perfectly. I remember back in the day, before I cared about the culinary arts, how much of a disaster it was when I tried to bake boneless chicken breast. I’d buy the chicken breast from the store, you know, those super thick pieces of boneless chicken breast. I’d preheat my oven, sprinkle a little season, mostly salt, pepper, and maybe paprika if I was feeling fancy, and stick it in the oven. I’d let it bake for a longggg time because my biggest fear is undercooked chicken. How would it turn out you may ask?? A super dry thick breast mess. May be the reason for some relationships ending in the past…

Fast forward to now. I still find chicken breast to be a bit difficult at times but not with this Parmesan Breadcrumb Chicken Recipe. Every time I make this, the chicken is moist and flavorful. My daughter and hubby love it and I never stress about dry chicken.

Here are all the ingredients you will need:

Hi Karen, I haven't made this recipe in the air fryer yet, but I usually cook chicken breast in the air fryer on 375 for about 15 minutes. I would do the same with this recipe.
