  • 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. total)
  • 1 (10. 5 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup, NOT diluted (I use Campbell’s Healthy Request)
  • 1 ¼ cups milk I used 1% milk, but any type will work
  • Optional garnish: chopped fresh parsley or basil
  • For serving: pasta, biscuits, rice or bread


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a shallow bowl, stir together breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, 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 in the prepared baking dish.
  • Repeat with remaining chicken.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until chicken is almost cooked through and crust is golden brown.
  • Remove chicken from oven.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together cream of chicken soup and milk. Pour sauce over chicken. Return to the oven and bake, uncovered, for 15 more minutes, or until sauce is warm and bubbly.


Nutrition information assumes 2 T breading and 2 teaspoons butter per chicken breast, plus all of the sauce.
Cooking Just for Two? Cut all of the ingredients in half and bake the chicken in an 8-inch square dish. The rest of the cooking instructions remain the same.
