Parmesan Crusted Chicken

Parmesan Crusted Chicken
20 Min

Parmesan Crusted Chicken is a golden, cheesy delight! We like to make this recipe with different types of dressing so that it tastes slightly different each time.

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup Russian dressing (see Options)
  • 2 1/2 cups crispy rice cereal, coarsely crushed
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 to 2 pounds total)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Place the Russian dressing in a shallow dish. In another shallow dish, combine the crushed cereal and Parmesan cheese; mix well.
  3. Dip the chicken in the dressing then in the cereal mixture, coating completely. Place on the baking sheet. Drizzle the butter over the chicken and bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until no pink remains in the chicken.


If Russian dressing isn't your preferred flavor, you can use any type of creamy dressing like ranch or sweet-and-spicy French.

I'm cooking for 20-25 people....can you tell me how much of everything I need? Thank you

Hello there! To cook for 24 people, you will need 24 chicken breasts, 10 cups of rice cereal, 4 cups of Parmesan cheese, 1 stick of butter, and 4 cups of the Russian dressing. We hope this was helpful. Good luck with your large menu. It's sure to be impressive. :)

I have a recipe nearly identical to this, but it uses corn flakes and Dorothy Lynch salad dressing. It's very good. Why not use whatever cereal (within reason) you have on hand and your favorite dressing?

Thank You for this excellent recipe .I did it with creamy ranch was very good.Also thanks Howard for Mr Food remaining on TV as well as in our hearts.You are all very special people.
