Bread & Bake Chicken

Well, well, well folks this is it! This has got to be one of the easiest, but tastiest recipes I have ever made. There are literally 4 ingredients: chicken, butter, bread crumbs, and Parmesan cheese (okay, maybe some salt, pepper, and dry spices). This also makes it a great recipe to introduce our latest Label and Picture Link tab (on the right side of the blog). We have decided to make recipes that we will title "Super Simple". These will be go-to recipes for those times when you want something that is easy to make and doesn't require a whole slew of ingredients. We would love to know if you like these recipes, what you think of them, and we would love for you to email us your go-to recipes to feature here on two little chefs.

Now back to this particular chicken recipe. Like I said before it really is tasty, especially if you use shredded Parmesan cheese rather than the grated stuff so that you get the crispy, cooked cheese...mmmm...cheese. Also, it looks good, it looks like you spent time making something special for your family or friends, which really does make it a go-to recipe - a recipe to whip up when you are having company, but don't have lots of time to make your "special" dish. Just add some stemmed veggies, frozen rolls, and you have a delicious meal to feed those hungry mouths waiting at your table.
