Lemon Parmesan Baked Chicken-tender, delicious chicken that is full of flavor! A hearty meal that the whole family will enjoy!

My family loves chicken for dinner! We don’t eat a lot of beef or pork, so chicken, turkey, and fish are our main sources of protein. I love that chicken is so versatile and easy to cook! It’s great in everything from tacos to stir fries, and my kids love it. Baked Parmesan chicken breasts are one of my favorite main dishes, and I love coming up with new flavor combinations. This lemon parmesan baked chicken is fantastic! It has a crisp lemon and parmesan coating on the outside, and the chicken is tender and flavorful. Best of all, it’s super easy to make, and perfect for a busy weeknight!

You’ll start by preparing your chicken breasts, then letting them sit in a mixture of beaten eggs and lemon juice to soak in some lemon flavor.

Next, you’ll dip the chicken in a mixture of bread crumbs, lemon zest, and parmesan cheese. Place the chicken pieces on a baking sheet lined with parchment or foil, and spray with cooking spray. The cooking spray helps them get crisp and golden brown in the oven.

I like to serve them with a lemon slice on top to add a little extra lemon flavor.

I made this for a bunch of friends for dinner last night and it was so good – everyone loved it! I had panko on hand instead of bread crumbs and chicken cutlets instead of breasts but it worked just as well I think! Thanks for the recipe, definitely one I’ll make again (probably soon).
