“Lalu Chicken” (a.k.a., parmesan encrusted chicken)

Each month we invite our spiritual kids over for a family dinner to catch up and stay in touch with each other. My parents, affectionately named Papa and Lalu by my nephews, join us each month as well. There’s always great food, tons of laughs, and usually some mildly and unintentionally inappropriate comments made by my hubsy. ;D

We were so blessed this month to have Lalu make her pièce de résistance, “Lalu Chicken!” It’s chicken tenders in a delicious parmesan crust. Yum!

Here’s all you need to make this incredible dish:

  • 6-8 chicken tenders
  • 1 cup gluten free bread crumbs
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 3 tblsp chopped parsley, fresh
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tblsp dried onions or onion powder (optional)

First, mix all dry ingredients (including the cheese) together in a bowl and melt the butter in a separate bowl.

Dredge the chicken in the melted butter first, then in the dry ingredients mix (both sides).

Put coated chicken onto a well greased pan, or a pan with tin foil (also greased). Stick it in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.

And there you have it! We served it up with the best sweet potato casserole you’ll ever have, and some grilled zucchini. Topped it off with delicious grilled peaches and vanilla ice cream (see the recipe here!). Such a great meal!
