Baked Parmesan Chicken

Baked Parmesan Chicken

This recipe is a result of a combination of flavour cravings at the moment ... I have been wanting to eat chicken parmesan for a few weeks but haven't had the time to make it! I also wanted to make something crunchy and crispy with panko breadcrumbs without it being deep fried! I then bought a nice block of parmesan cheese (so good!) in my weekly shop and needed to put it to good use, so I grated some for my daughter and her friend to snack on while I made this for lunch ...

I made a mash to go with the chicken, you could cook up some fries or maybe a garlic-parmesan spaghetti to go with it as well OR if you are like my 4 year old you will just baptize the chicken in lots of tomato sauce while the parents aren't looking! haha
Presenting to you another quick and easy meal idea!
