Thanks for nice chicken share with us:)


So superb recipe for the provides a number of benefits – for one, it contains high levels of omega 3 fatty acids, which are thought to have a positive effect on heart disease and cholesterol levels.


add some garlic and it's 100% AWESOME!


We add garlic powder and onion powder to the bread crumbs and parmesan mixture.


I make this only instead of 1/2 C Margarine (YIPES! that seems a lot) I use just a little bit of olive oil in a glass dish and put some fresh ground garlic in that and let it sit in a slightly warm oven for a few minutes to rest the garlic and meld the flavors. Then I roll my chicken breasts in that and then roll them in the mix of crumbs/cheese. Put back in the pan as you finish one. Then bake @450° for 20 minutes. (I bake longer) VERY moist and delicious.


To lower the calories further, I substituted brown rice crumbs for the bread crumbs and soaked the chicken breasts in buttermilk, garlic powder & a few shakes of Louisiana hot sauce, before breading. AWESOME!


Great recipe man


Very good article great recipe. Keep up the good work


This seems to be a great recipe for a low cholesterol diet. What could I use to substitute liquid margarine?


Olive Oil: Olive oil is a wholesome alternative to margarine due to its lower saturated fat and trans fats. It can be used in a 1:1 ratio as a substitute for liquid margarine.

Coconut Oil: Coconut oil has a higher saturated fat content than margarine but is also rich in medium-chain fatty acids, potentially increasing HDL (good) cholesterol levels. Use a 1:1 ratio as a substitute for liquid margarine.

Avocado Oil: Avocado oil is a healthy alternative with a high smoke point, making it suitable for baking. It can be used in a 1:1 ratio as a substitute for liquid margarine.

Applesauce: While not a direct substitute for liquid margarine in terms of texture, applesauce can help to add moisture to your recipe. You can substitute it using a 1:1 ratio. However, consider reducing the amount of liquid in the recipe to maintain the right consistency.

Nut Butter: Nut butter, such as peanut butter or almond butter, can be a tasty substitute for liquid margarine in baking. Use a 1:1 ratio of nut butter + 2 teaspoons of water to achieve the desired consistency.
