Do you ever have one of those weeks where everything planned starts falling to pieces? Well we’ve had a few of those weeks in a row! I usually share recipes on Monday’s but, schedules can get jumbled and unexpected things happen. This is the kind of week were you need a recipe as easy as this! I used to love my grandmas fried chicken but, heaven on earth all the work, not to mention frying! No this is a simple breaded chicken is lighter, comes out crispy but, is no fuss and baked! Wait, didn’t I have you at easy recipe?
Yes, no egg washes, no mixing up flour and no mixing up spices just plain easy! One staple I love having in my house is Italian Style Bread Crumbs. I use them for breading the chicken in this recipe. Among other recipes. Have I shared my fish recipe? Hmm, if not I’ll have to soon. And of course one of my family favorites meatballs. I’ll have to remember to take photos and share those with you too. Are you getting hungry yet? Let me get back to the easy recipe!
The steps for the breaded chicken recipe are easy as one, two three! Let’s get cookin!
Rinse and pat dry your skinless chicken. Next pour the seasoned bread crumb in a larger size bowl grab your chicken breasts and dip right into bread crumbs.
It seemed like our bathroom remodel was going quite well and then we had to find the perfect size tub to fit into the space so we wouldn’t have to tear into the cement sub floor to re-plumb everything. It took many online searches and days to find that affordable, perfect sized center mount tub! Delays, delays! What does that have to do with cooking I agree! Let’s move on!
Next step just line your favorite cookie sheet with aluminum foil and drizzle with a bit of olive oil place each breaded piece onto the baking sheet! I usually bake the chicken at about 450* for 20 minutes. Bake chicken until crispy on the outside and fully cooked on the inside with an internal temperature of 165* .Our new oven has a rapid pre heat. I love that feature! I have to take a photo of my new stove and share it with you. I have yet to find the range hood! The Mr. purchased this great 5 burner stainless steel Whirlpool stove with convection oven but, didn’t get the range hood yet. Our remodel of the kitchen is half done. Never have two remodel jobs going at once trust me. Chaos!
While it’s cooking wash and cut up your favorite veggies to accompany your meal. Our side dishes were white potatoes and I discovered Sammie actually likes brussel sprouts! Thank goodness she loves veggies. On this day I just washed and cooked the brussel sprouts in water but, here’s a recipe if you’d like to roast them and toss them with chopped pecans. I know I want to try the recipe myself next time! I started a Side Dish Pinterest board if you’d like other ideas for sides.
But, at least the kitchen floor is laid and three new beauties share the kitchen with me now. Fridge, stove and hallelujah a dishwasher!!! This meal doesn’t really have a lot of dishes but, do I ever enjoy not having to hand wash all the dishes all the time! Thank you, dear!
Now yesterday our car broke down. We have been driving two that have served us well for many, many years. This isn’t perfect timing for fixing or looking for a new-used car but, both have to happen soon as we live in a rural area and it’s not really an option.
Hope you enjoyed this quick and easy thirty minute meal of baked crispy chicken!
