Copycat Longhorn Parmesan Crusted Chicken

“FREAKING AWESOME” That is all Chicken Legs wants 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!

How to Make Longhorn Parmesan Chicken

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 just 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. Dinner was ready in under 30 minutes! If you want to make this even easier, feel free to marinate the chicken in Italian dressing instead of my marinade.

To make this low-carb/keto-friendly, swap the panko bread crumbs for some crushed up pork rinds.

Longhorn Garlic Parmesan Crusted Chicken Recipe- copycat from LongHorn Steakhouse. Grilled chicken topped with a creamy Ranch sauce and parmesan crumb topping. Chicken, ranch, garlic, parmesan, panko bread crumbs, provolone, butter. I made this tonight and it is AMAZING! Tastes just like the restaurant.

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to ¾ inch thickness
  • 1 cup shredded provolone

Marinade

Ranch Spread

Parmesan Crumb Topping

  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • cup shredded Parmesan
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter

Instructions:

Chicken

  • 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.

Ranch Spread

  • For the ranch spread, mix ¼ cup of grated Parmesan and ¼ cup ranch dressing. Set aside.

Parmesan Crumb Topping

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

Assembly

  • 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.

Notes:

Can marinate the chicken in Italian dressing for a simpler recipe.
To cook chicken without a grill, pan sear chicken breasts on both sides for 3 to 4 minutes. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165ºF.
Can make Ranch Spread & Parmesan Crumb topping ahead of time.
For a low-carb/keto-friendly recipe, substitute pork rinds for panko bread crumbs.

  1. My family absolutely loved this recipe! So much in fact that I’m making it again tonight for the second time in 2 weeks! The marinade is phenomenal and I’ve already used it on some pork chops as well!! So much flavor in this dish!! Thank you for another amazing recipe!!

  2. This was PHENOMENAL 😍 The marinade itself just flavored the chicken so well! We will be using it on other meats in the future. We did grill our chicken and man was it so perfectly juicy! The toppings just “topped off” an already perfect piece of meat. We only wished we had made more. Simple too!

  3. Made this for my brother to celebrate his 65th Birthday (he found the recipe) and it was a great success!! Thank you!!!
    Came out perfect, looked just like the pictures, and was easy to prepare!!👏👏👏Thank you!!!
    Warmest regards!! Margo
