Easy Oven-Baked Parmesan Chicken

  • Author: Bailey Sissom
  • Prep Time: 15 mins.
  • Cook Time: 20 mins.
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 4 large chicken breasts 1x
  • Category: Main Meal
  • Method: Oven


  • 2 Tbs dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp parsley leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 cup panko breaks crumbs
  • cooking spray


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 and fit a baking sheet with an oven-proof baking rack (this will ensure air circulates all around the chicken and will result with a crispy outer coating).
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the mustard, parsley, salt and paprika. Whisk to combine. Add the chicken breasts and turn to coat completely. Set aside.
  3. In a second medium bowl, combine the parmesan and panko. Mix to combine.
  4. Dredge the mustard covered chicken breasts in the panko mixture, coating heavily and evenly. Press the crumb coating into the meat.
  5. Put the chicken on a rack that has been lightly sprayed and set over a baking sheet. Spray chicken with an additional quick burst of cooking spray.
  6. Bake until the chicken is golden and cooked through, about 15-20 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes before serving.
