Who says Diet is a 4 letter word? {Panko Chicken with Roasted Romaine Recipe}

o.k. maybe diet is too strong of a word..... but we are taking baby steps and trying to clean it up around here.  I found this awesome recipe on Bon Appetit and it was a real crowd pleaser at Chez Webb and to David's joy its a one dish/one pan meal..... freed up time for him to work out instead of being stuck in the kitchen cleaning!  Darn, I think I forgot to tell him that part..... NEXT time :)

Parmesan Panko Chicken with Roasted Romaine

Here's what you need to serve 4:

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan Romano blend
  • 1/2 cup Panko 
  • tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley [1 TBSP dried]
  • 1 garlic clove, diced, divided
  • 2 large hearts of romaine, halved lengthwise
  • Olive oil & garlic salt to sprinkle, spritz and/or drizzle on your romaine {or garlic infused olive oil if you have}
Preheat oven to 450°. 

Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. Season chicken with salt and pepper; place on prepared sheet. Combine cheese, Panko, 2 Tbsp. oil, parsley, and 1 garlic clove in a medium bowl. Pat Panko mixture onto breasts. Roast chicken until crumbs begin to turn golden, about 10 minutes.

Drizzle romaine with 1 Tbsp. oil {I used my Misto} and sprinkle with garlic salt. Season with salt and pepper. Remove sheet from oven; place romaine around chicken. Roast until chicken is cooked through and lettuce is browned at edges, about 5-7 minutes more.

  1. Love that so many lawyers like us love to cook... hmmm

  2. I loved encrusted anything! This post inspired me to experiment a little bit with crusting things! I have now done a parmesan crusted tilapia as well as pistachio crusted chicken! Thank you so much for being an inspiration!
