Monday's Meal

Have to get dinner on the table in a hurry? Well this delicious casserole combined with rice or egg noodles will fit the bill.

Imperial Chicken Bake

1/2 cup of breadcrumbs (I like Italian breadcrumbs)
1/3 cup of fresh grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 Tbsp minced parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp of black pepper
6 boneless skinless chicken breast
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter
1 clove of minced garlic
juice of one lemon
1/4 tsp of paprika

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine breadcrumbs, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Dip chicken in milk, then dredge in seasoned breadcrumbs. Place in lightly greased 13 X 9 casserole dish. Combine butter, garlic and lemon juice; drizzle over the chicken. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes or until tender and no pink juices come from chicken when pierced.
