This Parmesan Chicken Freezer Meal Recipe is a family favorite. It is super easy to make and if perfect to pull out of the oven on a busy night and pop it in the oven to bake!

Parmesan Chicken recipe

This recipe is quick and easy.  Just take your boneless skinless chicken breasts and trim off any fat.  Next I would mix the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese together, in a separate bowl I would melt some butter.  Then just dredge the chicken breasts through the butter and then roll in the bread crum mixture.  If you like the stewed tomatoes (I’m not a fan so I use spaghetti sauce) spread along the bottom of a tin foil cake pan then place the chicken breasts on top and sprinkle with mozarella cheese!  Cover with foil and freeze.  To cook, just preheat oven to 350 degrees and pop it in the oven for 90 minutes or until the chicken in cooked through.  If you prefer to defrost it then cook it for 40 minutes at 350 degrees.

Serve over a bed of cooked spaghetti noodles and use extra sauce to cover noodles.  This is great dish on a busy night paired with a cesar salad and breadsticks.

    I fixed this without any egg…just melted butter, then dredge in bread crumb mixture. Froze immediately, no pre cooking, then followed instructions for baking when ready. Cooked up beautifully and was very tasty!

    I am really excited to try this recipe.

    But I do feel like I should point out some mistakes on the page:

    “…if perfect to pull out of the oven on a busy night and pop it in the oven to bake!”
    Shouldn’t this be “…IS perfect to pull out of the FREEZER on a busy night and pop it in the oven to bake!”?
    Sorry but the grammar got to me so I had to share the mistakes!
