Baked Chicken Parmesan

I am always looking for new recipes for chicken. Chicken is one of my favorite things to cook (because there are so many yummy recipes) and J  hates it. Anytime he asks what's for dinner he will go ahead and say, "Let me guess - chicken?" Men. I like chicken because I do not believe in eating red meat every night. Geez. I tried a salad to go along with it, but I strongly disliked the salad. I didn't even serve it with our dinner - I just threw something together.

Baked Chicken Parmesan:
1 t salt
1/4 t garlic powder
1/8 t thyme
1 T parsley- m inced
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 T EVOO
Marsala cooking wine
1/4 t pepper
1/4 t paprika
1/4 C parmesan cheese
1/3 C bread crumbs
1/3 C water
1/4 C I Can't Believe It's Not Butter - melted

Combine s & p, garlic powder, paprika, thyme, cheese, parsley, and bread crumbs in a ziplock bag. Coat chicken in bag. Oil a shallow baking dish, pour in water and place chicken in dish. Sprinkle with oil and the melted margarine. Back uncovered for 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Lower the oven temperature to 325, pour wine over chicken, cover and bake for 15 more minutes. Remove cover and drain the liquid. Raise the temperature back up to 350 and bake for 10 minutes longer.

Rating: 4/5 

Although the cooking directions drove me nuts - who wants to keep getting up and down to make dinner - it was very yummy and passed the chicken expert's (my husband) expectations. I would love to make this again and toss it in with some pasta. I heart carbs.
