My 100th Post! & Mom’s Chicken Parmesan

Mom's Chicken Parmesan

Mom’s Chicken Parmesan

100th post…it seems so hard to believe!  I’ve recently read so many wonderful year-end, round-ups & “top ten” posts of the year.  Since I’ve only been blogging since this past Summer, I didn’t feel justified in re-visiting my small portion of history.  With this 100th post, however, I’m smiling to myself & that’s a good thing!  I’ve met so many talented, gracious & warm hearted bloggers, & I’m pleased to have made so many great friendships!  So looking ahead, friends by my side…I’ll continue to blog, learn, share & smile. 🙂

……………….

Mom has made this dish for as long as I can remember.  It’s simple enough for everyday, but good enough for company – perhaps serve it with roasted asparagus.  It’s a recipe that has broad appeal, if you’re not sure of your guests preferences, this would be a safe bet & a lovely choice.

Ingredients:

1 cup dried bread crumbs

1/3 cup Parmesan Cheese

1/4 cup parsley, chopped (or dried parsley)

1 -1/4 teaspoons salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Pinch of dried mustard

3/4 cup butter, melted (1 & 1/2 sticks)

1 clove of garlic, minced (or 1/3 teaspoon garlic powder)

3 lbs of chicken, trimmed (I slice them into large strips)

Directions:

Mix the bread crumbs, cheese, parsley, salt, pepper & mustard together & set aside.  Mix the butter, garlic & Worcestershire sauce together in a bowl.  Dip the chicken into the butter mixture, then into the crumbs, taking care to coat all of the sides.  Place the chicken strips in a large baking pan which has been sprayed with non-stick spray.  Pour the remaining butter over the tops of the chicken pieces.  Bake in a 350 F oven until they are cooked through & nicely browned.  Baste once or twice with the pan drippings, if desired.

Recipe Notes:

I didn’t include the cooking time here, as it will depend on the size of the chicken slices you’ve used.  Since I use boneless/skinless chicken cut into strips, mine take about 40 minutes.  Mom always used bone in & she baked hers for about an hour.
