Parmesan and Garlic Pita Chip Chicken

Again, I have been absent from the blog. Sorry (if anyone is still out there)! Busy, busy... but I have a ton of recipes to upload. Like this one that I pulled together last week. When I did my shopping for the week, I was intending to make a breaded chicken recipe that I found. Once I started cooking, I realized that I was out of breadcrumbs. Trying to be creative, I found Stacy's Baked Parmesan and Garlic Pita Chips in my pantry. I wish I would have thought of this one sooner... yum!

1 lb organic chicken breasts; pounded till even
1 egg; beaten 
A couple of handfuls of Baked Parmesan and Garlic pita chips (I used Stacy's brand)
A handful of Parmesan cheese
1 Lemon
Salt and pepper
Greek yogurt (amazing used as a dip for the chicken!)

In a ziplock bag, add pita chips. Seal and use a rolling pin to make into fine crumbs.  Pour in a bowl and mix with parmesan cheese. Zest the lemon and add to breadcrumbs.
In a medium skillet over medium high heat, add 1 tablespoon oil or cooking spray. 
Season chicken with salt and pepper then dip into egg and coat with breadcrumbs. Add to pan and cook 7-9 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Squeeze lemon over chicken before serving. 
Serve with Greek yogurt or even hummus.


  1. Mmmmm, that looks so good!

  2. Yes - I'm still here and I'm so glad that you are posting again! Great idea to use the pita chips - I bet the chicken was so good. Hope you are enjoying your new kitchen!

  3. Slowly getting back into it! :)
    Can't wait to have you girls over the new place!

  4. GREAT for dipping hummus or plain snacking.
    I really like the naked chips, but the whole wheat ones, which they do not have here, are even better.
