Yes, you read that right: heroin chicken.  No, there’s no heroin in it!  It’s just so delicious that it’s addicting.

I discovered the recipe on Pinterest; I can’t find my original Pin but I definitely have the recipe’s source.  It’s from Sunriselilly at Food.com and you’ll love it.


4 chicken breasts

2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese

3 tbsp. dried parsley

2 tbsp. dried oregano leaves – I didn’t have oregano, so I used Italian seasoning

3 tsp. paprika

1 tsp. pepper

2/3 cup melted butter

Feb 19 001Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Feb 19 002That looks to be about two cups, don’t you think?  Combine shredded Parmesan with the spices.Feb 19 003It already smelled good!Feb 19 006Get the butter, cheese and your casserole dish in order and ready….Feb 19 004Give the chicken breasts a butter bath.Feb 19 005Paula Deen would be proud of me today!  My doctor, on the other hand, would probably smack me upside the back of the head and scream, “No!”

After the chicken has had a nice bath, take each breast and dip it into the cheese and cover both sides.  Set them in the casserole dish; I had butter leftover so I poured a couple of tablespoons over each breast.  Feb 19 007Pop into preheated oven for about 30 minutes.  At the end of 30 minutes, remove and flip carefully.Feb 19 009Return to oven for another 15 minutes.  Feb 19 010At the end of these 15 minutes, remove from casserole dish and put on serving platter.  Allow to sit for about eight minutes before serving and cutting.Feb 19 011I prepared white rice and fresh green beans; warmed up the cornbread from the other night and we feasted.  It was absolutely delicious!Feb 19 012
