Cast your vote for Parmesan Chicken

We call this recipe Micky Chicken

This chicken recipe is a family favorite. It is named after a family member who made this recipe from a variation of another chicken recipe intended for summer picnics. But this recipe is best served hot right out of the oven. Everyone in the family loves it from my 1 yr old granddaughter to my 96 yr old grandmother.

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 40 min
Yields: Serves 6


  • 2.5 to 3 lbs Chicken Tenderloins, Tenderloins are the best size. You can cut up breasts into tenderloin size pieces

  5. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until pieces begin to brown.

Ways To Serve Micky Chicken

There are many different ways to serve this delicious Easy Bake Parmesan Chicken. We often serve it as the main dish for dinner. Often we use rice and green beans for side dishes. Sometimes we also add a dish of homemade mac-n-cheese. This chicken is delicious with mac-n-cheese.

We also like to serve it at family parties. The tenderloin size is perfect and it's easy to serve. It's so easy to make but tastes like a gourmet dish. We are often asked for the recipe so we decided to share it with everyone!

(Note: The original recipe called for drumsticks, and it had twice the parmesan cheese than the bread crumbs. The recipe said to bake it early and refrigerate and it's great for picnics. We prefer using 1/2 the parmesan and chicken breasts, and serving it hot!)

      Side note - REAL butter, none of that margarine crap! :)

      Olive oil cooking spray - I just lightly spray each piece of chicken on both sides before rolling them in bread crumbs. It doesn't make a very thick breading, just a light coating. I can't lie, I do love me some butter though. I might have to try it next time.

      So you just bread the chicken without putting it in a wet mixture first? Sometimes I skip the egg and milk if I marinated the chicken in italian dressing. The dressing makes the bread crumbs stick. But I never skip the butter, even though I'm sure it's healthier. :)

      I make this all the time! Only I skip the butter, milk and eggs. I cut each piece into strips, spray them lightly with cooking spray, then dip them in the parmesan-bread crumb mixture. My kids love them, and the leftovers are great in salad. I'm glad I'm not the only one that loves this dish :)
