Parmesan Chicken Recipes

These chicken breasts are so juicy, and bursting with flavour. The exterior gets a delicious crunch without the use any kind of breading or flour. The trick is in stuffing Parmesan cheese right under the skin and finishing them in high heat. I am in love with this dish!


Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 45 to 55 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 2 large portions


  • 2 large chicken breasts (I used bone-in)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp oil


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F degrees. Gently lift skin from chicken, but do not separate. Dash some salt and pepper on all sides of chicken breasts.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the cheese, basil, garlic, and a drop or two of the oil.
  3. Spoon the mixture under the skin, then use your fingers to spread and press it around to evenly distribute it.
  4. Heat remaining oil in a pan over medium high heat. Add chicken pieces, skin side down, and cook for 5 minutes. Flip over and cook another 5 minutes, then transfer to the oven to finish baking, about 30 more minutes. At the very last 5 minutes, use 450 F to achieve crispy skin.

I like this recipe because it's quick, easy, inexpensive and delicious. We all love that! I serve it with the sides of salad and garlic toast. It's chicken patties, topped with melted provolone cheese. Serve with spaghetti noodles, both topped with your favorite spaghetti sauce.

For a golden appearance, after chicken is cooked through, set oven to broil.. Broil 2 to 4 minutes or until golden brown.
