Herbed Crusted Chicken Breast

Baked herbed crusted chicken in oven is a delicious copycat Texas Roadhouse recipe. Parmesan crusted with mustard, parsley and basil. Choose boneless skinless thighs or Chicken Breast in Oven 350 with white meat is great too.

Herbed Crusted Chicken

Our parmesan herb crusted chicken recipe is a flavorful and delicious dish that features chicken breasts coated with a mixture of breadcrumbs and diced fresh herbs. It’s crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, making it a crowd pleaser. (post may contain affiliate links present)

Now you could Bake a Whole Chicken at 350 this same way too, it would just take much longer. For an entire bird I would double the coating and cover for at least half the cook time. That way you can get the insides moist and mostly cooked, then remove to crisp the outside and get the coating to brown nicely (but not burn).

In the event you wanted to use this breading on frozen chicken breasts recipe you could, but in a similar fashion. You’d need to allow a bit of cooking to happen first, covered, then add the topping and remove cover to get that golden brown and crispy on the top.

In this case and our Parmesan Crusted Chicken Air Fryer we are using medium size breasts without skin or bones present. If you can only find huge ones I would slice them in half so they aren’t as thick in order for them to cook evenly so the center will reach 165 degrees F by the time the outsides are getting done.

  • 3-4 medium chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • Parmesan grated
  • 1/3 c Panko breadcrumbs
  • Lemon juice
  • Basil fresh, chopped
  • Avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1.5 tbsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp parsley fresh, diced
  • 1/2 tsp salt and pepper

And a sheet pan is what you will use to get this done, or better yet a 9×9″ pan if you are only making a few at a time. If you choose to make this Ninja Foodi chicken breast style you could fit 2 probably without overlapping your pieces. That method will get you a really crispy outside which we love as well.

This is yet another example of How to Bread Chicken Without Eggs. We use mustard in this case to make a thick and somewhat creamy coating before dunking into the breadcrumbs and parmesan. For dairy free you could skip the cheese entirely but it is low in lactose.

Now if you wanted to use something other than cheese you could substitute all or half of it with crushed nuts for another idea. We have made Almond Crusted Chicken before and not only does it offer a new flavor but the crunchy texture is surprisingly delicious.

Just like if you were making Herb Crusted Salmon this way, the size of the dish you use will depend on how many people you are serving. This is easy to double or triple but there will be juices released so you want higher sides on the dish so it doesn’t run all over and ruin the inside of your oven.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl, mix lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper.
  • Add olive oil and basil and mix together.
  • In a separate bowl, mix bread crumbs and cheese.
  • Spray inside of a 9×9″ pan with non stick spray
  • Rinse and dry the chicken fillets with paper towels.
  • Brush with lemon mixture. Press each piece of chicken into bowl with cheese mixture to coat.
  • Lay inside pan.
  • Bake for 20 minutes to up to 30 minutes at 350 f, depending on the thickness, or until thickest part reaches 165 F internally.
  • Rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

Many times we will make this with Parmesan Crusted Brussel Sprouts or pan fried green beans to serve together. A great duo that you can bake together.

This is How Long to Cook Chicken Thighs on Stove over medium high heat if you’d prefer that way, and with dark meat. Any are fantastic ways to enhance poultry’s taste and texture. You can use a variety of herbs, fresh or dried, to add depth and complexity to your dish. Here are some popular choices beyond what we have used for your chicken dish.

  1. Fresh parsley adds a bright and fresh flavor to the crust. It’s a classic choice for herb-crusted chicken.
  2. Thyme has a slightly earthy and floral flavor that pairs well with chicken. Fresh is always better than dried herbs, but either can be used in your crust.
  3. Rosemary has a strong, piney flavor that can be quite aromatic. Finely chopped leaves can be added into mashed potatoes served with this too.
  4. Fresh basil leaves offer a sweet and slightly peppery taste, which complements chicken nicely. Tear or chop fresh basil into your breadcrumb mixture.
  5. Oregano or Italian seasoning has a robust and slightly bitter flavor. This can add depth to your herb crust.
  6. Sage has a savory and earthy flavor, which works well with chicken. Use fresh or dried sage leaves in your crust.
  7. Tarragon has a unique and somewhat anise-like flavor that can be a delightful addition to herb-crusted chicken. Fresh tarragon leaves are ideal.
  8. Dill offers a bright and tangy flavor, which pairs beautifully with chicken. Use fresh dill fronds or dried dill in your crust.

Chives have a mild onion flavor and can add a subtle kick to your herb crust. Finely chop fresh chives to incorporate into the mixture. A mix of 2 is usually best, choose the pairing that you think you will love the best. Jump to recipe card below to print and follow to make your parmesan crusted chicken recipe with herbs this week.
