Parmesan Crusted Chicken Dinner…..
….is done all in one pan and oven baked. All in 30 Minutes, or less.
And,, it turns out great!
When you get home from a busy, tiring day and you want to put a real good meal together but with minimal work and cleanup…..
……this Parmesan Crusted Chicken Dinner definitely fills the bill. You could substitute any kind of potatoes that you have on hand but the sweets shown here were a nice change from the norm.
The time in the oven could range from 15 to 20 minutes depending on the size and thickness of the chicken. I used these thin filets that we buy frozen and it helps both the prep and the cooking time. Tenders will also work good.
Let’s get going.
Set the oven at 450°F/232°C and put the chicken in the microwave to thaw.
Peel and cut up the sweet potatoes into bite sized pieces.
Line a cookie sheet or baking pan with aluminum foil and spray or wipe it with olive oil. I have started using these nonstick cookie sheets and they work out real well. Spread the potato pieces and the broccoli out on the pan. Lay the chicken in the pan. Salt and pepper everything and shake a layer of grated parmesan cheese on the chicken. Lightly drizzle the chicken with olive oil, turn the chicken pieces over and do the same treatment on the second side.
Into the oven it goes. When the chicken reads 165°F/75°C on an instant read thermometer or is leaking out clear liquid or is firm to a poke it is done. You might like to then switch the oven to broiler and put the pan on a top shelf for a minute or two to get things a little crusty. You don’t have to but,, well,, I like to.
It’s time to serve up and enjoy your Parmesan Crusted Chicken Dinner.
