Ingredients

  • 1 cup seasoned “Italian Style” breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2.5 lbs. - 3 lbs. total)
  • 24 ounces (or about 5 cups) fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • In a shallow bowl, stir together breadcrumbs, Parmesan, and garlic powder.
  • Melt butter in a separate bowl.
  • One at a time, dip a chicken breast in the butter and then dredge the chicken breast in the breadcrumb mixture. Place the chicken on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining chicken.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, or until chicken is almost cooked through and crust is golden brown.
  • While the chicken is in the oven, toss broccoli florets with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Remove chicken from oven.
  • Add the broccoli to the sheet pan in a single layer around the chicken. Return the pan to the oven and bake for about 10-15 more minutes, or just until the broccoli is tender and the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.

Notes

COOK'S TIPS AND RECIPE VARIATIONS:
  • How do you make chicken Parmesan crispy? For an extra crispy finish, try placing the baking sheet under the broiler for the final few minutes of baking time.
  • For more flavor, try adding garlic, parsley, basil, Italian seasoning, or other spices to the broccoli before roasting. 
  • For crispier roasted broccoli, add the broccoli to the sheet pan after just 20 minutes of baking time. This will give the broccoli about 15-20 minutes in the oven, which will yield a more charred vegetable.
  • Total cooking time for your chicken will depend on the size and thickness of your chicken breast. I recommend using a meat thermometer to know exactly when your meat is done and needs to be removed from the pan.
  • Make Panko Parmesan Chicken by substituting Panko breadcrumbs for the regular fine breadcrumbs. If using plain Panko, be sure to add some Italian seasoning to the breadcrumbs for that added flavor.
  • Try this Baked Parmesan Crusted Chicken using different types of chicken. For instance, instead of the chicken breast, make Garlic Parmesan Chicken Tenders or Garlic Parmesan Chicken Thighs. If using tenders, bake at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes total. If using boneless, skinless thighs, bake at 400 degrees F for 35-40 minutes total.
Nutrition information is purely an estimate, assuming 1 tablespoon of butter, 2 tablespoons of breadcrumbs, and 2 tablespoons of Parmesan per chicken breast. Exact nutrition facts will vary depending on how much breading actually sticks to your chicken.
