A delightfull healthy twist on a traditional Italian recipe, parmesan crust baked chicken has to be a firm favorite especially when there are kids involved.
A salty and tangy crust and moist chicken with just enough seasoning and livened up just a little with the addition of paprika.
I’ve used Pumpkin Seed Powder for the crust but if you cannot find this you can replace it with flour. However, the nutty flavor from the powder makes the dish all the more flavorful and incredibly nutritious too.
