Oven Baked Parmesan Paprika Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast  from 101 Cooking For TwoYou can never have too many great chicken recipes. Put this one up there with the best you have. It has it all: wonderful spicy Parmesan taste, great texture, moist and oh so easy.

I based this off an allrecipe.com recipe. I added some panko bread crumbs and garlic since all chicken must have garlic at our house. With the Parmesan combined with paprika and garlic, you get a tasty main dish.

I’m having a really good cooking month. Another solid 5. Also makes a great leftover.

Notes: There is enough coating for 4 breasts but I only had three so the pictures are of 3 large breast but the recipe will say 4 so you can scale it correctly.

clean and prep the chicken

Trim, rinse and pat dry 3-4 skinless boneless chicken breasts.

    I am SO glad I came across this site! Soon getting married, we are both health conscious and want to be ‘cooking for two’. I love the recipes and this one looks terrific! Dr Dan you are awesome!

    Welcome to the blog, I’m glad you like it. Not all the recipes are “healthy” but many are. This is one of my current favorite recipes for chicken breasts. And congrats on the wedding.

    First time that I saw a “method of baking”. Seriously, I thought the oil that you put in the baking pan would pop when it’s hot already in the oven! Kudos to you, your chicken breast looks like it’s drenched in oil and not simply baked.-
