This Paprika and Parmesan Chicken is so tender and flavorful it doesn’t need any kind of sauce. So crispy it could almost pass for fried chicken!
Like our Creamy Bowtie & Asparagus Pasta, this Paprika & Parmesan Chicken was served at our wedding luncheon a few years ago. I remember having a little taste of it at the luncheon and wanting to dive in face-first and finish mine and everyone’s around me (both because I was starving and because it was THAT good)… I refrained only because I was wearing all white and I didn’t want to burst out of my dress just yet lol. ANYWAY– We STILL have people raving about how good it was and asking for the recipe!
We make this several times throughout the year but we make it a point to make it every year on or around our anniversary (around here we call it “Anniversary Chicken”). It is a meal we always look forward to! I have also made this for several large family and church events and it always gets devoured. You can make a lot of it and it stays well in warmers. The best thing about this chicken is that it is SO EASY. The prep-time is seriously a matter of minutes and it always turns out perfectly!
This chicken is so tender and flavorful it doesn’t need any kind of sauce or gravy. To make it more “kid friendly” we have oftentimes cut the chicken into strips before breading and served it with roasted potatoes and/or steamed veggies. You will love how tender and juicy it always comes out. It could almost pass for fried chicken! To get the full experience, serve with Creamy Bowtie & Asparagus Pasta (click HERE).
