This Italian chicken is simplicity at its best. Breaded in a flavorful coating chicken is baked to a golden perfection along with delicious vegetables. Everything is done in one pan for a very convenient clean up. There is no complicated prep and no mess afterwards.
The breading for the chicken is a combination of breadcrumbs, freshly grated parmesan cheese, garlic and herbs. All of the ingredients are combined to create an aromatic breading that will make the chicken crispy on the outside in the oven.
I usually use potatoes that are added to the sheet pan together with the chicken. I love the pairing of chicken and potatoes, but you can really use any other root vegetables that suit your personal palette. Butternut squash, carrots and Brussel sprouts all work great in this dish.
I use skinless, boneless chicken breasts for this dish. Chicken is first dipped in melted butter and then the breadcrumbs coating. The butter helps the breading adhere to the chicken as well as it adds delicious flavor.
Freshly grated parmesan cheese is essential for creating the amazing golden crust on the outside. The breadcrumb mixture acts like an insulator, and the chicken stays moist and juicy on the inside. The herbs used to spice up the coating is a basic Italian seasoning. It really elevated the flavors with the fragrant herb mix.
