Earth laughs in flowers... Ralph Waldo Emerson

A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.

I made this chicken the other night and it was amazing. I saw Paula Deen make it on her show

and thought I would give it a whirl. You have to try…it it is YUMMY!!! It is a great alternative to

the mess of frying chicken…so easy…and YUMMY!!! Did I say it was YUMMY…lol!!!

Oven Fried Chicken

2 cups Panko bread crumbs

1 cup grated Parmesan

4 tablespoons olive oil, divided

2 tablespoons freshly minced thyme leaves

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons water

2 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/4 -inch thickness


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Place a

cooling rack over pan and spray rack with nonstick cooking spray.

In a shallow dish, combine bread crumbs, cheese, 2 tablespoons olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper,

to taste. In a separate shallow dish, combine mustard, water, salt and pepper, to taste, and

remaining olive oil. Coat each chicken breast with mustard mixture; dredge each in bread crumb

mixture. Place on prepared rack in pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until chicken is golden

brown. Serve immediately.

Cook Time 30 min

Level Easy

Yield 4 servings

Have a wonderful day!!!

Lots of Love!!!

Since fried chicken is one of my favorite things to eat and one of my least favorite things to make, I will definitely give this recipe a try. No fying, and it uses olive you think this might actually be good for us!!!? I am going to answer that with a "Yes" and make it for dinner tonight!

This looks amazing! I've never used Panko breadcrumbs before. I don't know that I'ver ever SEEN Panko breadcrumbs before!LOL! Good excuse to go to Central Market.:)

Sharing with Sherri said...

Ooooo this really does sound yummy Cathy! But I had never heard of Panko breadcrumbs, so I googled it and found some easy recipes to make your own if it's not available at the market!

Thanks for sharing and I love learning something new!


Stacey said...

Hi Cathy. I've been wanting to try that recipe. I make a very similar recipe that just uses flour instead of Panko. Glad to hear the good review. :) Now I just have to find some Panko...seems like PD says it's in the Asian section of the store.

Jo said...

This looks delicious ~ I'm adding it to my menu for next week! Thanks.

Paula said...

Hello, Cathy! THANKS so much for visiting my blog and your sweet, sweet comments! I'm so glad you visited! Your blog is beautiful, and this recipe looks delicious. Don't you just LOVE Paula Deen? We try out her recipes on a regular basis. Funny story about husband says he deserves royalties for discovering her! He worked for Hoffman Publishing (the company that publishes Paula's magazine), and said that in the mid to late 90's, he visited Savannah, went to her restaurant, and came back to work and to the publisher exclaiming his praises. He told Phyllis, the publisher, "You REALLY need to do an article on this woman ... and maybe a cooking magazine!" Ha! Years later, Phyllis took this advice and the rest is history! He tells her on a regular basis he is awaiting his royalty checks in the mail. :-) Anyway, we ADORE her recipes!

Please come back and visit the blog again soon! Now, I'm off to explore more of yours. It's just lovely!

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Cathy, Thanks for your concern, I really appreciate your prayers. I will be ok. Things could be alot worse! I hope you are feeling ok...

You will have to come over to Sherry's next time I'm there. Her house is so pretty! I didn't get all the pics I wanted to on this trip.

Your pumkin should be there the latest Monday. I hope it arrives in good shape, it will probably need a little fluff. Thanks for the compliment on my new pic!

The chicken sounds wonderful! I am always looking for new chicken recipes. Have a great weekend! Kristen

Oh and I recieved your check, thank you!! I'll make sure it arrives safe before I cash it.

Hi Cathy! Wanted to let you know that I posted the *Fall Fusion Tablescape* and linked your Autumn collage post! When I saw the 2nd photo you posted with the blue berries, I thought, wow, she must have read my mind because my accent color is cobalt blue! ;) Too funny!

Thank you for your graciousness!

And I will have to try out this recipe you posted. It does look yummy and the seasonings sound great that she used!

Hi Cathy,
This recipe looks delicious and easy too! I love watching Paula Deen. She has such a fun sense of humor she reminds me a little of Dolly.

Marla said...

Cathy thanks for visiting my blog. And for your swweet comments. This is my first time to your blog as well and I am instantly loving it. You got me with the Ralph quote at the get go. I love that quote and I love love love flowers. I like growing them, I like looking at them, smelling them, picking them, displaying them and most of all photographing them. Your chicken recipe looks awesome. I am definitely looking forward to following your blog and exploring your past post's. Marla

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hi Cathy...

Just read your sweet note, my friend! Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek at my living room metamorphosis! Sure appreciate your kind compliments!!!

Well my friend, your oven-fry chicken looks delicious! I've never tried this recipe but will do so. I'm always looking for ways to do chicken in the oven...doing a low-fat diet! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe with us! You know...I'm not real fond of musturd. Wonder what I could any ideas?

Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

Manuela@A Cultivated Nest said...

I'll have to try the parmesan! I always use panko mixed with Italian breadcrumbs for oven friend chicken but the parmesan sounds like it would be a nice addition.

I use Miracle Whip because some in my family don't like mustard.


Joyce said...

All my little GS will eat is Chicken Nuggets and I can make these in little squares for him. I am laughing as Paula must have been dieting when she made these as they are not fried like most of her recipes. We go to Savannah about 6 times a year and we can never get into her place to eat. Always a huge line and reservations in person only. We look thru the window and it always looks like a great buffet. I do get to visit her gift shop. Her brother had a place just before you get onto Tybee Island that we keep driving past which we hear is also good but every time we drive past we seem to be dieting and keep on driving:) Thanks for sharing the recipe.
