Crispy Chicken Dinner

Serves 4-5


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
½ cup soft breadcrumbs
3 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
2 tsp lemon zest, grated
½ tsp paprika
3 tbsp lemon juice
Extra-virgin olive oil
1 tbsp water
Vegetable oil cooking spray
Salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly spray a baking pan with cooking spray.

Combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, lemon zest, paprika and salt on a shallow plate. In a separate shallow dish, combine lemon juice and 1 tbsp water.

Dip each side of the chicken breasts into the lemon juice and water mixture, then in the Parmesan cheese/breadcrumb mixture until both sides are well coated. Place into the baking pan and bake in the oven for about 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink inside.

Serve immediately with a vegetable side dish and homemade sweet potato fries.
