Easy & Delish!

Seriously? I'm getting the hang of this cooking thing. Not that the following recipe is anything spectacular. It's just that i've always been paranoid about following a recipe exactly!! I kind of would freak out when i'd ask mom for a recipe & she'd say "oh, you just throw this & this & this in a pan & put it on, oh, about 350, & then if it's not done, you might need to..." No. Must have an exact recipe.

But lately i've been getting over this & have been able to just throw things together. Now, i'm a little embarrassed saying all this, because the following recipe is so simple, you'll probably think, "Seriously? Everyone knows how to do that." But i'm going to blog it anyway. In case it might help you. In case you are clueless like i am was.

Parmesan Chicken & Rosemary Potatoes

Get two casserole type dishes. Spray the bottom of both of them with Pam. Preheat the oven to 375.

In a bowl, mix the following:
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup italian breadcrumbs
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic salt

Arrange chicken tenderloins (mine were pre-cut, making this dish SUPER easy) in bottom of baking dish. Drizzle olive oil over them. Pick up one at a time & dip in bread crumb mixture & then place back in the dish.

Cut up red potatoes into quarters. Leave the skins on. Throw in the other casserole dish. Drizzle olive oil on them. Sprinkle dried rosemary & parmesan cheese on the potatoes.

Put both dishes in the oven at the same time & bake for 1 hour.

VOILA!!! An hour to bake is nothing when the prep time takes almost no time at all!! And i am telling you- really yummy. Everytime i've ever made chicken that i had to dip in breadcrumbs or something... it always turned out yucky. Or just okay. But those were on the stove, this was in the oven. And they were SO yummy & tender. =)

  1. I haven't done chicken parmesan in a long time. Now you've got me wanting some. Might have to put it on the menu for next week. And the potatoes sound YUM!

    And I understand... I am one of those people that need to follow the recipe.
