Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. In a shallow bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Dredge the chicken breasts in the flour, shaking off any excess.
  4. Dip each chicken breast into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off.
  5. Coat the chicken breasts with the breadcrumb mixture, pressing lightly to adhere.
  6. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  7. Add the breaded chicken breasts and cook until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove and set aside.
  8. In the same skillet, add diced onion and minced garlic. Sauté until translucent and fragrant.
  9. Stir in chicken broth, heavy cream, frozen peas, and corn. Bring to a simmer and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  10. Arrange the cooked chicken breasts in the greased baking dish.
  11. Pour the creamy sauce over the chicken.
  12. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese evenly over the top.
  13. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
