Tired of the same old chicken breast recipes? If so, you are going to want to make this Parmesan Crusted Chicken recipe. I normally make chicken recipes for dinner a couple of times per week. My family loves it when I make some of our favorites like Easy Chicken Pot Pie Casserole or our Red Hot Chicken. Those are go to chicken recipes. This baked balsamic chicken breast is so good! Juicy, slightly sweet and garlicky. Ready in no more than 40 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chicken breast. I know overcooking chicken breast is not an option, but if for some reason it dries out a little, you have some nice sauce to serve it with.
This quick and tasty garlic and parmesan chicken is super easy to make so it’s great for busy weeknights when you just need to whip up something fast. It’s all made in one pan in under 20 minutes. The chicken is first cooked in olive oil and seasoned with just salt and pepper. After the chicken is cooked through, remove it from the pan and add some minced garlic to the same pan. Cook the garlic for no more than 30 seconds just to until it begins to turn golden.
I love having easy recipes on hand that use up leftover shredded chicken and leftover pasta. I don’t know about you but I always seem to have random bags of leftover pasta from when I didn’t use the entire box. You’ll only need 2 cups of pasta for this chicken casserole so it’s a great way to use up those little amounts. I will either use a Rotisserie chicken or leftover shredded/chunked chicken. You could even use some leftover taco meat too! Shredded pork or whatever else you have. As long as you use 2 cups of whatever meat you choose.
