Easy Baked Chicken Recipe

My husband hates cheese. This is a problem for me when I am trying to figure out what to make for dinner. Most of the time, he can sniff it out if I try to hide it. He gets mad it I try to hide cheese in his food. Last night I was in the mood for Parmesan Chicken. I knew he wouldn’t like it so I looked for a substitute recipe without the cheese. I found a really good recipe for Baked Chicken that I want to share. I found it at and altered it.

Oven Fried Chicken Breasts

6 pieces boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
Beat with a fork in a small bowl: 1 egg and ¼ cup skim milk.
Shake in large bag: 1 cup dried whole wheat bread crumbs
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried thyme
½ teaspoon paprika
Dip chicken in egg mixture, and then drop into bag of coating. Shake gently. Place well coated chicken on greased cookie sheet and bake for 45-60 minutes at 350 degrees. Smells and tastes delicious.
While my chicken was baking I made quick and easy baked potatoes. I washed the potatoes, poked them with a fork and cooked them individually in the microwave for 4 minutes. I wrapped them in foil and put them in the oven to finish cooking along with the chicken. I think they taste better that way. Then I steamed green beans. We all agreed it was a really good meal, one that I will repeat often.
