First Meal in the Apartment

By Friday night, we were exhausted but wanted a home cook meal. We stocked up our kitchen with our Target and grocery store run, so I decided to make us a home cooked meal using some of our wedding presents. Here was the menu:
  • Panko Parmesan Chicken
  • Summer Salad
  • White Rice (Tyler's staple)
The only thing that really had a recipe was the Panko Parmesan Chicken, which is one of our staple recipes, which Tyler LOVES. For any of you interested in making it, here's the recipe:
  • 6 skinless boneless chicken breasts pounded out slightly
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons honey dijon mustard
  • 2 cups of panko (You can find Panko in your local supermarket in the Asian food section)
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of ground pepper
  • 5 tablespoons of butter
  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees
  2. Butter a large baking sheet with 2 tablespoons of butter (you can also use cooking spray)
  3. Whisk eggs and mustard in a bowl and set aside
  4. Mix panko, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper in another bowl
  5. Dip the chicken into the egg mixture and then the panko mixture coating the chicken generously. You may have to use your hands to really coat the chicken breast.
  6. Place the chicken in the baking dish
  7. Melt the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter in a small sauce pan. Once the butter is melted, drizzle it over the chicken breasts.
  8. Bake until brown (approximately 10 minutes). You should flip the chicken breasts once. (I sometimes drizzle a little more butter once I flip the breasts...you don't have to though.)
Here's what your meal will look like:
