Baked Paprika Parmesan


4 skinless boneless chicken breasts, trimmed
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated (Fresh is better but use pregrated if necessary)
2 teaspoons paprika
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 400F. Set up 2 medium sized bowls. Beat 2 eggs in first bowl.
Mix flour, parmesan, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a second bowl. Place a wire rack on a large baking sheet and brush the rack with oil. Dip chicken, 1 breast at a time, in egg mixture, then in parmesan/paprika mixture, turning to evenly coat both sides of each breast with each ingredient. Place on prepared baking sheet, in a single layer. Pour the melted butter evenly over the chicken.
Bake for about 40-45 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cheese has browned, and the chicken has cooked.
You can also finish them off under the broiler for a minute or two to get them extra browned on top. Serve with a veggie like these delicious fresh broccoli that I steamed. Season with a dash of fresh parsley, if desired.
