Servings: 8 people
- 3-4 large Chicken Breasts (About 1/3 lb of chicken per person)
- 3 large Eggs
- 1 Tablespoon Ranch Seasoning
- 3 Tablespoons Water
- 1.5 cup Parmesean Cheese
- 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Trim any tendons or fat from your chicken. You can use chicken breast, chicken tenders, or chicken thighs for this recipe.
Put the chicken between two sheets of plastic wrap and use the flat side of a meat tenderizer to flatten your chicken. You will want your chicken to be 3/4"-1" thick. You will mainly be flattening the middle of the chicken breast so it's all about the thicknesses.
Make an egg wash with eggs, water (To thin it a little so you don't get egg chunks on the sides of your chicken when it bakes) ranch seasoning, and garlic powder. Dip your chicken in the egg wash and be sure to get both sides of the chicken.
In a separate dish, add the parmesan cheese. Coat the chicken in a thick layer of grated parmesan cheese on all sides.
Lay the coated chicken breast in a greased 9" by 13" baking dish. Salt and pepper the chicken on both sides to your preference.
Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 45-60 minutes. Use a meat thermometer to make sure the meat is cook thoroughly but you don't overcook it. The internal temperature of the chicken should reach 165 degrees Fahrenheit. If you don't have a meat thermometer, you can tell the chicken is done if you cut a piece of chicken in half and the meat is white throughout and the juices from the meat run clear.
Let the chicken cool for about 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
