Looking for a new chicken recipe? Crunchy Parmesan Chicken is full of flavor, and a nice change of pace from regular fried chicken.
The secret is in the coating. What could be more yummy than mixing french fried onions together with parmesan cheese and panko bread crumbs? Nothing...as far as I'm concerned. The crunchy coating is the stuff that dreams are made of.
What's the best part? In less than 30 minutes, you'll have dinner on the table and your family will be begging for more.
How to Make Crunchy Parmesan Chicken
Start by adding french fried onions, grated parmesan cheese, seasoned panko bread crumbs, (ads) paprika, salt and pepper to a large mixing bowl. With a potato masher (or a large coffee mug), crush the onions and mix everything together to make the coating.
Beat an egg with a tablespoon of milk to make an egg wash. Now, comes the fun part! Dredge chicken tenderloins in egg wash, then roll each one in the crunchy coating until covered on all sides.
Add chicken to a cast iron skillet (ad) with melted butter. Sear both sides of chicken, and fry over medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown.
