This Garlic Parmesan Chicken recipe is very simple and delicious. It can be made with white or dark meat, breaded or bare, pan fried or baked. It’s entirely up to you. This recipe is even good over wings and chicken legs if you’re just looking for a side dish. The point is, Garlic Parmesan Chicken is so versatile it can practically be done anyway you want to cook it. I even use these exact same ingredients over Brussels Sprouts, it’s that good.
The way I like Garlic Parmesan Chicken
My personal favorite way to cook this recipe is with chicken thigh meat cut into small pieces. In fact, that’s how I like my Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo. Cooking the chicken this way just adds so much more depth to the pasta and sauce. So I highly recommend you add your Garlic Parmesan Chicken to your favorite noodles. You can check out my Alfredo recipe HERE if you’d like. Of course when I say “my” I mean The Olive Gardens! 😉
2 Boneless Chicken Breasts
2 tbsp Olive Oil
6 Garlic Cloves, chopped
1/4 cup Fresh Parsley, chopped
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
2 tbsp Salted Butter (optional)
Kosher Salt and Pepper to taste
The instructions in my Garlic Parmesan Chicken video recipe tutorial is very easy to follow. However, I don’t use any butter in the cooking, though it’s clearly in the ingredients as an option. I do this for health reasons. For me the Olive Oil is enough but the added butter does make this dish taste even better. So consider adding it if it’s something you would normally do to make your Garlic Parmesan Chicken perfect.
This Garlic Crusted Rack of Lamb is really amazing. The “ooh and ah” effect is perfect and the taste of each bite is incredible. In my opinion, this recipe should go down in history as a holiday favorite for everyone, because it’s simply that good. I’ve had Lamb in Indian Restaurants, Steak Houses and homemade Mutton Stew, when I lived on the Reservation. But I can tell you, with this recipe, that it is hands down the best and you really couldn’t ask for a better tasting Rack of Lamb.
How I make this Rack of Lamb
I’ve designed this recipe with the best of two worlds, combining both the Garlic and Rosemary recipe with a Honey Dijon Mustard Glaze with a hint of Horseradish. This way you’ve through and through flavor that penetrates the lamb after the sear as it roasts in the oven. Believe it or not, total prep and cook time only takes 15 to 20 minutes and this dish can be served for Christmas, Easter or any run of the week dinner. Just be sure, if it’s date night, that you make him or her think you slaved for hours on this dish so that you’re truly appreciated.
Sear with butter over medium heat for approximately 2 minutes on each side of the rack of lamb. Add and brush the Honey Dijon Mustard marinade mix on the top of the lamb meat, then add the Garlic and Rosemary leaves. Bake at 450 degrees f. for 10 minutes and serve this Garlic Crusted Rack of Lamb with your favorite sides.
Garlic Parmesan anything, right? Well these Garlic Parmesan Brussels Sprouts are no different and they’re just as delicious as they sound. Maybe even better. I was recently using this exact recipe on Chicken Poppers, which are amazing actually, when I realized Garlic Parmesan Brussels Sprouts would be great for everyone at this years Thanksgiving. Truthfully, I’m not a big fan of Brussels either but I’m telling you that this recipe is sure to turn around the most stubborn Sprouts hater.
More Brussels Sprouts
Now just as a reminder, last year, I filmed Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprouts. So I’d highly recommend checking that recipe out if you missed it or if you’d like to revisit it, because those are really tasty too. And on a side note, Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so I’ll be plugging several recipes that will help you and your family celebrate this years feast below and in the next few recipe posts before the holiday.
