Becoming a Cook: Crunchy Parmesan Baked Chicken

This recipe is from the Food Nanny.  She's all about planning your meals ahead of time, and it has made such a difference for me.  I organize my meal calendar a week in advance, make a list of the ingredients that I don't have, and then there's only one trip to the store.  And, most importantly, I don't have to worry about what's for dinner all the time.  Here's a delicious one that I made last night.

Crunchy Parmesan Baked Chicken

2/3 cup buttermilk or buttermilk ranch dressing
2 cups bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons garlic salt
2 pounds chicken breast tenders
1/3 cup butter

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Grease an oblong baking pan.
2. Pour the buttermilk into a wide, shallow dish/pie plate.  Mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and garlic salt in another wide, shallow dish.  Roll each piece of chicken in the buttermilk and then dredge in the bread crumb mixture to coat.
3. Arrange the chicken pieces in the prepared pan.  Melt the butter in a glass measuring cup in the microwave and drizzle the melted butter over all.  Bake for about 30 minutes until the chicken is tender and no longer pink.  Sprinkle with salt to taste.

We really really liked it!  This recipe makes a lot and was definitely too much for the two of us.  I think I'll put it on some pasta and sauce this week and ta-da-Chicken Parmesean!
