Anyway this entire Zac Efron matter stemmed from viewing The Lucky One for the second time. I know, poor movie choice. The only real excuse I can produce is that Valentine’s Day is just about the corner and I simply so happen to be a sucker for anything intimate. Therefore sue me!
Besides good-looking men, my other obsessions this week include peanut butter and jelly chocolates bars from Trader Joe’s, lentil soup, and green coffee beans with garlic. Yum, yum, yummmmmm. Seriously I could create a book about the intricacies of garlic clove and how I slather it in and on just about anything imaginable.
Or I possibly could just tell you about the garlic and parmesan crusted chicken I made and how it proved golden brown and incredibly crispy.
Yeah, let’s opt for that.
Sometimes I feel like it’s hard to create chicken delicious. Frequently, I’ll purchase a pound and just stare on the package, trying to figure out what to time of year it with or how I can incorporate it right into a food. This time I jazzed in the it up a little using a crispy finish and plenty of taste. New obsession? Of course.
The chicken is marinated in essential olive oil, a bit of greek yogurt (to keep the chicken moist), garlic, lemon juice, and fresh herbs for 30 minutes. Once completed bathing in the like, it’s covered in panko bread crumbs and parmesan cheese and baked to a crisp. Delicious is what it really is! Plus, it’s perfect combined with my garlic-roasted reddish potato wedges along with a salad.
2 tablespoons plain greek yogurt, mayo, or sour cream
1 teaspoon fresh smashed rosemary
1 teaspoon finely chopped new thyme leaves
4 large garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Place panko and mozzarella cheese right into a shallow huge dish and whisk to combine. Set aside.
Once chicken is performed marinating, remove from handbag and put on a large dish. Pat off excess marinade from the chicken, you do not want it too wet! Sprinkle poultry with a bit more sodium and pepper and drop into the panko-cheese blend, tossing to equally layer. Place the poultry onto prepared cable rack and do pigs like feet it again with remaining rooster breasts. Spray the top of the chicken breast with a bit of essential olive oil cooking spray.
