The beauty of this post is that it incorporates two recipes that are delicious on their own. Two for the price of one lol. I have made the crusted chicken without this sauce and love it and have created this sauce and used it for fish, pork and other meats.
The other beauty of this recipe is the time it takes to come together. Prep takes longer than actual cook time. These are my favorite types of recipes because the delicious end result requires very minimal effort.
The sauce is not everything here. You can absolutely make just the chicken and that is YUM as heck on its own. But the sauce is soooo deliciously drippy and definitely recommended.
This is the perfect dish to make for a get together. You can prep the chicken and parmesan mixture and refrigerate before everyone gets to your house and be ready to go when they get there.
If you really want to impress your guests, make sure you serve with lemon slices and chopped fresh parsley for presentationn. This serves incredible with mashed potatoes, pasta, rice, french fries, zoodles or salad. I made it with rice and the excess sauce was phenomenal on it.
