Crispy Parmesan Chicken With Zucchini

Hi there, everyone! How are you? I hope that you’re having a fantastic day!

I have another delicious recipe to share with you guys. As it turns out, this was actually the first successful dinner I’ve ever made for my family, haha! The last one I tried (which was months ago) was edible, but not at all tasty. lol

That aside, I’d love to tell you all about my experience making crispy parmesan chicken with zucchini!

I got this recipe from Pinterest, and the only thing I changed were a few ingredients in the breading. I got plain Panko breadcrumbs and some oregano and extra garlic powder instead of using Italian breadcrumbs, which was a substitution I knew would make it easier for us than buying more expensive breadcrumbs. Click here for the recipe, if you want to try this for yourself!

The first thing you do is chop up the two zucchinis.

Next, you prepare the breading for the chicken. I did this while my mom cut up the meat. These are the ingredients I used:

I stirred them all together in a glass bowl.

Next, you briefly soak the chicken breasts in melted butter, then toss them in the breading, which I did in a gallon-size plastic bag, then I put all four in the skillet!

While they cooked, I made sure to flip them every which way so they’d all be cooked equally. At that same point in the cooking process, I gathered all the zucchini slices together in another pan.

I did this for maybe fifteen minutes, stirring the zucchini and flipping/rotating the chicken. Here’s how my chicken looked when it was nearly done:

The zucchini finished around the same time as the chicken, so I transferred them to a plate to cool a bit, then I set everything up so we could assemble our plates.

My mom also made crescent rolls to go along with what I made, which was awesome because I’m always in the mood for crescent rolls!

Here’s how my finished plate looked:

Ooooh doesn’t that look good?! I am absolutely in love with how this dinner turned out. The chicken was amazing and tasted great, and the zucchini really went with it! This was my second time having this veggie and I must say that it was fantastic. (Definitely with a bite of chicken, not by itself!) I personally think that crescent rolls are a fine addition to any meal, although I’ll leave it up to you which roll or biscuit you’d like to have accompany this wonderful dinner!

My only complaint is that one piece of chicken for each family member was not enough food for us, lol. I will be making double the chicken next time!

My mom made this dish a classic in our home growing up. She dipped the chicken in egg before covering it with the mixture, but butter sounds delicious too! Much better than mayonnaise (yuck!) what my boyfriend’s mother used… I’ve never made it myself, but I’d love to try, and zucchini is a favorite of mine (:

This looks sooooo good! Now I am really hungry. I used to make chicken parmesan, but now I make breaded zucchini instead. It’s a lot cheaper than buying real meat, and it still tastes great. I cut the zucchini like you did, then cover each piece in soy-free mayonnaise, then breadcrumbs. I stick it in the oven for 30 minutes, and it’s crispy deliciousness!

Yaa!! Don’t you love it when a recipe comes together and brings the family together!! I agree with plain panko and adding what you wanted. It’s smart, and you can so that with other things you’ll use the panko for. The zucchini looks good too. Did you add any thing to it? I cracked up over the crescent rolls hahaha yes, they make everything better πŸ˜‰
