Cook Time: 30 mins


* 1/2 cup margarine or butter 3 tablespoons of canola oil

* 2 cloves garlic, minced

* 8 4 boneless chicken breast halves cut into strips (so they cook faster)

* 2/3 1/6 cup grated parmesan cheese

* 1 cup fine dry bread crumbs ¼ cup of flour

* 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or 2 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes

* 1/2 teaspoon salt

* 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper or white pepper

* 2 pinches of paprika

* 2 pinches of cayenne pepper


Make a mixture with flour, parmesan cheese, parsley, and all other seasonings. Dip the chicken pieces in the mix (rinse the meat or you can quickly marinate in some salt and lemon juice to get the coating to stick – no need to dredge in egg). Preheat the oven to 350. In a pan that can also go in the oven (I used my cast iron) heat oil with minced garlic. Pan-fry the chicken pieces so that the coating becomes golden on both sides. Place the whole thing in the oven for about 10-15 mins depending on how big you cut the chicken strips. Should be crispy and moist. Place in a 9- x13-inch baking dish and bake at 350° for 50 to 60

(tip: consider fishing the garlic out before putting it in the oven...burnt garlic is not delish)

Good hot with home made honey mustard or with a simple pasta.

Great next day sliced cold on a salad.
