Christmas at Grandma's Day 2

Did you catch Monday's post? It was a terrific festive veggie salad that would be beautiful on your holiday table. And today I'm sharing what would be a tasty main dish alongside it!

I'm kind of a chicken addict. I love it any and all ways, and if it weren't for husband I wold more than likely cook it multiple times per week. But as it is, he isn't the biggest chicken fan in the world, so I try to limit myself to once every week, or even every other. And when I do make it, I know he will be more likely to enjoy it if it's white meat. While I love the flavor of the dark, he is the exact opposite.

So when I saw this recipe in Christmas at Grandma's, I knew it could be a happy compromise for us both. Now, I will admit I'm not a fan of breaded baked chicken. It's not my first choice because I am always afraid of it coming out mushy or bland or both, but with this recipe neither is a worry!

This comes out with a crispy outside, tender and juicy inside and flavor galore! If you're going to be entertaining holiday guests, this would be a great choice. Simple and quick for the host and delicious for your guests.

We can all use more chicken options, rather it be for the holidays or a weeknight meal. Oh, and you can have a chance to win a copy of this new Gooseberry Patch cookbook too! Just click here to enter!

In another mix together bread crumbs, cheese, oregano, paprika, parsley, salt and pepper. Lightly grease a 9 x 13 baking dish. Dip each piece of chicken in butter and then cover in bread crumbs. Shake off excess. Place in baking dish. Cover. Bake for 45-60 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15 more minutes.
