Parmesan Crusted Chicken with Bacon

Prep Time: 10 mins       Cook Time: 35 mins

Ingredients

Oil for frying – about 1/2 – 3/4 cup

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts – about 4-5 oz each

3/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp salt

1-1 1/2 cups shredded Asiago cheese

3-4 slices bacon – cooked and crumbed (can leave slightly under-done, it will finish cooking under broiler)

1 egg beaten

1 tablespoon water

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, mix egg and water and in another bowl, mix Parmesan cheese, pepper salt and garlic.

Heat oil over medium-high heat.

Dip each chicken breast first in egg mixture then in cheese and fry in hot oil until crust is golden brown.

Prepare a baking pan by covering with foil and placing wire rack on top.

Place chicken on rack and bake about 20 minutes or until juices run clear (Time will depend on thickness of chicken).

Remove from oven and turn oven to broil. Top each piece of chicken with Asiago cheese and bacon and place under broiler to melt cheese

Serve hot.
