Crusted Lemon Chicken Breasts Recipe




  1. Preheat oven to 450F
  2. Prepare the lemon by making the lemon zest; juice 1/ 2 the lemon and set aside.
  3. Using a wide shallow dish, such as a pie dish, whisk together the egg whites, cornstarch, and lemon juice.
  4. Using another wide dish mix together the bread crumbs, parsley, salt, pepper, and lemon zest.
  5. Pound the chicken breast to obtain about the equal thickness for each breast. (I fold them in plastic wrap or a disposable plastic bag to do this; it works really well.)
  6. Roll chicken in the egg white mixture, and then in the bread crumbs; place on a plate or serving platter and let rest refrigerated for about 20 minutes.
  7. Spray a 13 x 9 baking casserole dish with cooking spray. Using the oil in a large skillet brown the chicken on both sides; transfer to the casserole dish.
  8. Bake for 10-20 minutes until juices run clear. (internal temperature should be 165F.)
