Baked Parmesan Chicken


Normally, when I see recipes that say “only 4 ingredients!” I’m pretty skeptical about how it will taste.  I mean, cooking with few ingredients is nice and easy, but usually lacks flavor or interest.  So naturally I thought that this recipe would be one of  those dishes.  But, since the picture looked really good and I was in need of a dish that I could make quickly and simply, I thought I’d give it a try, and I’m so glad I did.

In the realm of “0nly 4 ingredient” recipes, this one is a paragon of outstanding, delicious dinners.  We were pleasantly surprised at how flavorful this is!  And the chicken is juuuuuuicy!  This is quite the accomplishment, considering it took me only 5 minutes to prepare it (and then it baked for about 20).

My one and only complaint is that the original picture is a bit misleading.  It looks beautifully golden brown and crispy. I don’t know how they got it to look that way without pan-frying it.  The coating is delicious, but not crispy…or golden brown.
