Baked Parmesan Chicken

  • 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan (2 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • black pepper
  • 4 6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Heat oven to 400° F. Mix cheese, butter, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and pulse once or twice to moisten.
  • Place the chicken in an 8-inch baking dish; season with ¼ teaspoon pepper and sprinkle with the bread crumb mixture.
  • Cover with foil and bake until cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Uncover and bake until crumbs are golden, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • The cheese is salty enough that no extra is necessary.
  • The crumb topping keeps the chicken very moist.
  • Adapted from this.
