Baked Paprika-Parmesan Chicken

Much to my husband's dismay we eat a LOT of chicken in our house! I have made chicken a million ways, I'm always looking for a new recipes but I like to keep a handful of recipes that I can make in a pinch using things that I keep on hand. 

Weeknight meals need to be fast and easy, there just never seems to be enough time in the evenings. The prep was only about 10  mins. I keep frozen thin cut chicken breast in the freezer at all times. They thaw quickly and are already portioned. The chicken was very flavorful and moist. This recipe will be going in the weeknight rotation!!

Baked Paprika-Parmesan Chicken

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 fresh grated parmesan
2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt 
1/2 tsp pepper
1 egg, beaten
2 Tbs milk
4 boneless, skinless thin cut chicken breasts 
1/4 cup butter, melted

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a shallow baking dish with olive oil. 

Mix flour, parmesan cheese, paprika, salt & pepper in a shallow bowl for dredging. Combine egg and milk in another bowl. 

Dip the chicken into the milk mixture and dredge the chicken through the flour mixture. Place in the dish and pour the melted butter over the chicken. 

Bake for 25-40 minutes until the chicken is completely cooked.
