Big Black Dog: Parmesan Chicken **HE cooks!

January 4, 2010

Parmesan Chicken **HE cooks!


It's not unusual for Mr. Tastebuds to cook in fact he was cooking almost every night for about the first 10 years we were married. I was working in a law firm at the time and put in many late night hours especially when I had an attorney in court. There was just no time nor energy to cook. His meals are simple, yet delicious and he did surprise me once in a while with an excellent sauce!

Sometime last summer I was not feeling well and took a late afternoon nap. Much to my surprise I slept for a good 4 hours and when I woke up Mr. Tastebuds was in the kitchen making dinner. When I asked him what the was making, he said "Parmesan Chicken, from a recipe I saw on TV." Mr. Tastebuds watches all the Saturday cooking shows, secretly I think he has a crush on Julia! And he sort of mentally files the recipe, never writing anything down. I wish my mind worked like his but I need at least a few notes not because I don't know how to cook on the fly but because there's no way I could ever remember!

Mr. Tastebud's Parmesan Chicken was just delicious and so simple, I've made it several times since. And it's definitely a recipe for my Call-it-Dinner category!

Parmesan Chicken
Recipe adapted from my husband, Mr. Tastebuds

2 Chicken Breasts, deboned and skinless
3/4 c. Parmesan Cheese, finely grated
3/4 c. Parmesan Cheese, coarsely grated
1 Egg, slightly whipped
1-2 TBL Canola Oil


Place the chicken breasts in a large ziplock bag and pound to about 1/2" thick, careful to not rupture the meat.

In a heavy-bottomed skillet heat the oil.

Bread each chicken breast in the finely grated Parmesan. Then dip each breast in the whipped egg. Then bread each breast in the coarsely grated Parmesan.

Place the breaded chicken beasts in the hot oil and saute to a golden brown on each side. Chicken is done cooking when the juices run clear when pierced with a skewer.

This looks delicious. What is the secret to getting all that wonderful topping to stick when you are browning? I am terrible at that part. Mr. Tastebuds found a keeper from the looks of it for sure!

Kayte,

I used to have a terrible problem with the breading falling off during a saute. But if you make sure the oil/butter is hot when you add the chicken, you should not have any problem.

Lucky woman you are!! He did good...it looks wonderful. Sir Sportsalot makes (read "heats") Prego Speghetti and knows how to make blue box mac n cheese...and brown ground beef. The End. (that doesn't included grilling or heating frozen meals, mainly frozen pizza)

Love a man that cooks- and this chicken looks great! My hubs just started cooking this past year. He keeps it simple & the food is always good. One of our favorite meals is a similar Parmesan Chicken with a simple arugula & red onion salad. So good!
