Garlic Parmesan Crusted Chicken



"FREAKING AWESOME" That is all Chicken Legs wanted me to say about this chicken.  He took one bite and said this was the best thing I've ever made.  I had to agree, this was absolutely delicious!  This recipe is from Longhorn Steakhouse.  My Mom found the recipe in the paper.  I love this dish at Longhorn's and I was really excited to try it at home!

I made this twice before I got it the way I wanted it.  The original recipe called for the chicken to be cooked in a skillet on the stove.  We tried it that way and it was good, but not as good as I remembered.   I wanted to give it another try and decided to grill the chicken.  That made all the difference.  It was as as good, if not better as it was in the restaurant.  Chicken Legs has already asked to have it again this weekend.  He also asked if I would make some extra chicken for lunch the next day.

This looks like a lot of ingredients, but it is really quick and easy.  I marinated the chicken and  prepared the ranch spread and parmesan crumb topping while Chicken Legs grilled the chicken.  This is our new favorite dish!






Garlic Parmesan Crusted Chicken
(Printable Recipe)


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 3/4 inch thickness


Marinade:
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup ranch dressing
3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp vinegar
1 tsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp pepper

Ranch Spread
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1/4 cup ranch dressing

Parmesan Crumb Topping
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1 teaspoons garlic salt,
1/3 cup shredded Parmesan
2 tablespoons melted butter

1 cup shredded provolone


Combine ingredients for marinade and pour over chicken.  Let marinate in refrigerator for 2-3 hours or overnight.  Grill 12-15 minutes, until chicken is done.

While the chicken is cooking, prepare the ranch spread and parmesan crumb topping.

For the ranch spread, mix 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan and 1/4 cup ranch dressing. Set aside.

For Parmesan crumb topping, mix bread crumbs, garlic salt, shredded Parmesan and butter.  The crumbs should be evenly moistened.

Position rack in center of oven. Preheat broiler.

Transfer cooked chicken to oven-safe casserole dish. Spread 2 tablespoons ranch spread on each breast, then top with provolone and Parmesan crumb topping. Place chicken under broiler and cook until cheese melts and crumb topping begins to turn light brown.  Serve immediately.

Pin It!

  20. I was just wondering, where does the provolone come in? I see it in the ingredients sections but I can't seem to find it in the recipe?

    1. In the last paragraph - you put the provolone on top of the ranch spread and top with the bread crumbs

  26. I have tried several of your recipes and loved them! I would love to try this one but I do not like ranch. Is there something I could use instead?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ashley - you could use some plain sour cream or Greek yogurt and add some spices to it

  28. This is the dish that I almost always get at Longhorn! I was so excited to find the recipe. I made this chicken tonight & my family of 7 said it's the best chicken I've ever made! We all loved it! I used the canned parmesan in the ranch spread & a 'good' shredded parmesan in the crumb topping. I also used sliced provolone because that's what I had. Awesome recipe! thanks for sharing. I'm sure I'll be making it a few times a month!

  31. I have seen lots of awesome reviews of this dish and lots of people saying they love the Longhorn version. I am curious of those who made it and have eaten it at Longhorn, how it compares :) Just curious, I can't wait to try it!

    1. I've eaten both and this is very similar to Longhorn's version. In fact, I think it is better. So does my friend that turned me on to the chicken at Longhorn. We both prefer the home version.

  35. ali - heat a couple of tablespoons of olive oil in an oven safe skillet. Pan sear the chicken for 2-3 minutes on each side. Put the skillet in the oven at 400 for 10 minutes.

  36. This is my second time reviewing this recipe. It's just SO good! I actually didn't realize that I didn't have provolone at the last minute, so I used mozzarella & we couldn't tell a difference. I also only use 1/4 c oil in the marinade & it's plenty. We love this chicken!

  37. OMG!!! I know no one knows how much I love LONGHORN'S chicken, but I ABSOLUTELY DO!!! My baby and I used to go there up to 3 times a week and that's ALL I would order. The servers knew what I wanted when they came to the table. I am not a cook at all, but did try another recipe I thought was close, but it was nowhere near!!! I AM SO, SO GRATEFUL YOU POSTED THIS RECIPE. I LOVE LONGHORN!!! I LOVE THIS CHICKEN!!! The recipe was so easy I was able to make it!!! That's saying a lot as far as cooking goes!!! I love it!!!! IT'S NEARLY the EXACT SAME TASTE!!! And I do love it much better!!! Thank you so much!!! You saved me a ton of money, and boosted my cooking confidence at the same time!!! lol!

  39. Can you put it in the over instead of the broiler? If so, how long should I leave it in the oven? at what temp?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Lydia - the chicken needs to be broiled so the crumbs get toasted. The chicken is already cooked, so if you bake it, it will be dry.

  41. Nutrition facts for this recipe? Anyone? (currently in the oven and waiting for a delicious weekday feast to occur)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I can't even begin to describe how much I love this chicken! My boyfriend and I love to make this together because does the grilling and I can do the other steps. I think it's better then Longhorn! So so delicious!!
