Chicken Parmesan

Greeting fair people! This is the Crown Princess, guest posting for her lovely Queen Mother, who is, alas, unavailable to give thee this Saturdays delicious recipe. So! I take it upon mine self to step forward and attempt to fill the void her highness's absence hath created. (In other words I am posting yon recipe for her.)

Ye olde chicken recipe is one that we living in the royal palace have made several times before and all love! The combination of herbs, spices, along with plenty of cheese, has made this a favorite. Perfect for any summer time event, 'tis easy to prepare and can be readily doubled or tripled to fit the size of thine crowd. Enjoy!

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted

In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Dip chicken in butter and then into herb and cheese mixture. Place in a greased 15-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is tender and juices run clear.
Yield: 6 servings.
