Parmesan Chicken


We're back from a loverly trip to the mountains! Enjoy this recipe and I'll share pics on Monday of our trip. It was heavenly and boy, did we eat a lot of food. You may enjoy seeing all the fresh veggies that we ate and brought home, as well as the beautiful mountains of NC.

Here's another really good chicken recipe that I've had for a long time. I think I got this from my friend Judy, in Atlanta.

Parmesan Chicken

2 to 3 slices white bread (I use wheat & add 1/2 Italian breadcrumbs)
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2-3 TBS melted butter or margarine
2/3 cup Dijon mustard
3 TBL white wine
8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts ( of course, you can cut this down & only make 3 or 4)

Tear bread in pieces, put in food processor/blender & process until coarse crumbs form. Pour crumbs into a pan, mix with Parmesan cheese and butter.

In another pan, mix mustard & wine. Coat chicken in mustard mixture, dip both sides of breast in crumb mixture. Place in greased baking dish. Bake in a 500* oven until golden & chicken is white in thickest part, about 20 min. Check for doneness.

This makes 8 servings, so reduce as needed for less chicken breasts. It's really good and has a great flavor. A little twist to plain ole' chicken. I'm bummed, cause when I made this last week & went to wash my Pampered Chef baking dish, it cracked! It must have still been too warm when I started to wash it. Now I'll have to find another one....oh well, this one came from a yardsale and I bet I can find another one eventually.
Have a great Sunday! See you soon...

Hi Rhoda,

Boy, does that ever look yummy! Thanks for the recipe.

Might I ask 2 more questions about signatures on my posts? Do you know how I can get rid of the border around it? Also, do you know how I can move the signature to the bottom of the post when I am doing a post with no photos?

Thank you so much for answering my questions as I continue to learn the ins & outs of blogging.

I am anxiously awaiting your post on your visit to your parents.

That looks yummy and I will make it soon!

Do you have any experience in spray painting the mat from a picture? I have inherited some pictures I like only the frames. I want to put family pictures in them. The mats are rose. Should I try to spray them something neutral?

Rhoda,
Yummy chicken! I'll have to try that recipe.
The paint color that I used is from Kwal Paint Stores. I'm not sure if they're a nation wide company though.
The color is called Lucinda and it's from their Historic Colors of America line. I love it! It's such a rich color, and very similar to the blue in Restoration Hardware bags, but maybe a bit deeper.
I hope that helps.
