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.
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.
16 Frozen Dough Dinner Rolls, thawed
1 Cube Unsalted Butter, melted
1/2 tsp Salt (Don’t add salt if butter is salted)
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
Thaw and Roll the dough before it rises. Twist and Tie the dough into desired shapes and place on a greased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Cover with a towel and allow the dough to rise at least triple the size. In the meantime, melt 1 cube of Butter and add the Salt, Garlic Powder and Onion Powder and stir with a whisk. When the dough has risen, baste and coat the dough with the melted Butter mixture. Then shake Parmesan and Oregano over the top of all the Knots and Twists. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 Minutes. Then coat again with the remaining butter and serve Garlic Parmesan Bread Knots & Twists while they’re still warm.
If you want the dough to rise quicker after you’ve twisted and tied the rolls into knots, heat your oven to 200 degrees then turn it off. Add a large bowl of water to the bottom rack and place the cookie sheet full of dough on the top rack. The dough will rise 3 times faster this way so keep a close eye on it and be sure NOT to cover with a towel this way.
