Crispy Oven Chicken and Zucchini Sheet Pan Dinner

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

Know how you were wondering what to cook for dinner? I got you.


There are chicken breasts in the freezer, right? Everyone always seems to have chicken breasts in the freezer. And you’ve got to have parmesan in the fridge.

Yes?

Nice.

Let’s do this thing.


Crispy Oven Chicken Zucchini

Those two everybody’s-got-‘em ingredients (plus a few other pantry basics) make the best crispy oven parmesan chicken for din-din. Or supper. Or whatever you call that after-lunch meal that makes life worth living.

Start by stirring together Progresso bread crumbs and Parmesan.

Then dip chicken breasts in butter (or melted coconut oil) before coating them in the in the Parmesan mixture. Repeat this twice, because we’re aiming for uber crispy here.

Place on a baking sheet, then place sliced zucchini around the outer edges of the chicken.

Bake until golden, and just after your chicken begins to crispy, top with Muir Glen tomato sauce. Taking a hint from my ex-husbands Italian grandmama here, you can make a super simple marinara my stirring together fire-roasted crushed (or diced) tomatoes and a bit of garlic salt. Add mozzarella, return to the oven to bake.

Flavors you love, served up in a whole new way. This Crispy Oven Chicken and Zucchini Dinner is a must-try tonight. And tomorrow night. And probably 7x weekly. But we’ll let you decide.
