Italian Panko Breaded Chicken with Melted Provolone Cheese

Italian Panko Breaded Chicken with Melted Provolone Cheese

This meal is really easy and super tasty!  Defrost as many chicken breasts as your family will eat, I took out 3.  

In a ziploc bag pour in about 2 1/2 c panko bread crumbs, 1/4 c onion, a dash of red pepper, 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp basil and 1/2 tsp rosemary.  Be sure to mix all the seasonings together.  

In a separate bowl pour in enough italian dressing to completely coat the chicken.  If you have time in advance, marinating the chicken as long as possible will increase the flavors!  In the event that you are preparing all at once, simply dip each piece of chicken in the dressing and then in the panko bread crumbs and place in a prepared baking pan.  

Preheat your oven to 350.  Once all the chicken has been dipped in the dressing and the bread crumbs, top with provolone cheese and bake, covered for 40 minutes.  Remove the lid or foil and continue to bake until the cheese has become golden brown.  

Serve with your favorite side or vegetable and enjoy!
