This dish was a great hit with my family. Even my 2-year-old loved it and he’s a very picky eater. The lemon in this chicken dish gives it a great zing. Serve with rice pilaf and steamed garlic green beans and you’ve got a delicious meal.

Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 25 mins
Total: 40 mins
Servings: 4
Yield: 4 servings


4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
½ cup plain dry bread crumbs
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon dried parsley
½ teaspoon dried basil


Step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan.

Step 2
Place chicken breasts on a flat work surface. Slice horizontally through the thickest part of the breasts, being careful not to cut all the way through to the other side. Open the 2 sides and spread them out like an open book.

Step 3
Combine butter, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish.

Step 4
Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, and basil in another dish.

Step 5
Dip chicken in butter mixture, then coat in Parmesan-crumb mixture. Place into the prepared baking pan.

Step 6
Bake in the preheated oven until chicken breasts are no longer pink and juices run clear, 25 to 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a breast should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
