  • Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, beat together the egg and milk.
    Milk and eggs beat together in a glass bowl with raw chicken sitting next to it on a marble countertop.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, paprika, garlic powder, poultry seasoning, parsley, salt, and pepper.

  • Dip the chicken breasts into the egg/milk mixture then into the crumb mixture being sure to coat each piece with crumbs.
  • Place the coated chicken on the prepared baking sheet and drizzle the melted butter over the top of the chicken.
  • Bake for 22 to 25 minutes, or until the chicken has an internal temperature of 165°F. Allow your chicken to rest for about 5 minutes before slicing.

  • You can drizzle olive oil over the chicken in place of butter.
  • You can also add other spices to the chicken breast seasoning like onion powder, celery salt, oregano, basil, or chili powder for a spicy kick. 
  • Chicken thighs can be used in place of chicken breast, but it’ll change the cooking time.
  • Enjoy these with your favorite dipping sauces like ketchup, BBQ sauce, or maple mustard sauce.
  • Another idea is to melt a piece of mozzarella cheese on top. Add some fresh grated Parmesan and marinara sauce for an easy chicken Parmesan dish!
