I sometimes add a little Parmesan cheese to the crumb mixture.
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: Serves 4
- 2 to 3 tablespoons prepared pesto
- 4 chicken breast halves
- 1 cup panko bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Wash chicken breasts and pat dry. Gently pound the chicken between sheets of plastic wrap to even thickness.
In a food processor, pulse the panko and dry bread crumbs with the paprika, salt, and pepper, until well combined.
Rub each chicken breast with about 1 to 2 teaspoons of pesto, then press in the crumbs to thoroughly coat. Arrange the chicken in the baking pan and bake for about 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
