Herb Breaded chicken


Herb Breaded Chicken
From the New Lighthearted Cookbook

1 ½ sliced whole wheat bread or ¾ C coarse crumbs
½ Tsp Each dried basil, thyme, oregano, tarragon, paprika, and salt
freshly ground pepper
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 4 breast pieces)

Preheat oven to 400F
In food processor or blender, process bread to make crumbs. Add the spices and process to mix.
Transfer crumb mixture to a large ziplock and bag and adding a few pieces of chicken at a time, shake well to coat.
Place chicken in single layer in baking dish. Bake in 400F oven for 18-20 minutes for boneless breasts.
Makes 4 servings

Note: I wanted to jazz this recipe up a little so I topped the chicken with slices of tomatoes and sprinkled basil and fresh Parmesan cheese on top before I baked it.
