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
That looks to be about two cups, don’t you think? Combine shredded Parmesan with the spices.It already smelled good!Get the butter, cheese and your casserole dish in order and ready….Give the chicken breasts a butter bath.Paula 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. Pop into preheated oven for about 30 minutes. At the end of 30 minutes, remove and flip carefully.Return to oven for another 15 minutes. At 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.I prepared white rice and fresh green beans; warmed up the cornbread from the other night and we feasted. It was absolutely delicious!
