Doesn’t it feel like just yesterday we were making mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving and baking holiday treats? Now here we are gearing up for Super Bowl Sunday!
My favorite part about the Super Bowl is the food. Obviously. If I’m being totally honest, I couldn’t even tell you which two teams are playing. Is that really bad? All I wanna do it eat all the apps. Gimme all the apps!
These Chicken Parmesan Poppers are the perfect finger food for your fans.
Lightly breaded and crisp on the outside, tender juicy chicken in the middle, and dipped in your favorite marinara sauce. It doesn’t get much better than that if you ask me! Plus, they’re baked not fried so…HEALTH FOOD!
Your fans big and small will love this easy app. I promise.
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, diced into 1 inch pieces
- 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 3 eggs beaten
- 3/4 cup breadcrumbs or panko
- 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon minced parsley
- Marinara sauce for dipping
1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside, Lay cubed chicken in a single layer and sprinkle evenly with a little salt and pepper on both sides.
2) Set up your station with three bowls. In the first bowl add the flour. In the second bowl add the eggs. In the third bowl mix together the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and parsley.
3) Dip each piece of chicken first in the flour, tapping off any excess. Then in the egg, letting any excess drip off. Then roll in the breadcrumb mixture to coat. Place chicken on the parchment lined baking sheet.
4) Bake for 25-30 minutes until the outside is crisp and lightly brown. Meanwhile, heat the marinara sauce over low heat. Serve chicken with warmed marinara sauce for dipping.
