It’s not hard to love cheesy, crispy chicken Parmesan, but our customers seem to really, really love it. This HelloFresh Hall of Fame recipe was voted an all-time favorite because it’s easy, simple, and incredibly tasty. The chicken breasts are baked, not fried, and served over spinach salad with a freshly squeezed creamy lemon dressing. It’s a lighter, brighter twist on a tried-and-true classic.
Yukon Gold Potatoes
Wash and dry all produce. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut potatoes into ¾-inch cubes. Toss on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil and a large pinch of salt and pepper. Roast in oven until lightly browned and tender, about 25 minutes, tossing halfway through.
Meanwhile, combine panko, Parmesan, garlic powder, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a small bowl.
Place a chicken breast between two pieces of plastic wrap. Pound with a rolling pin, mallet, or heavy-bottomed pan until ½ inch thick. Season with salt and pepper. Repeat with remaining chicken breast
Place chicken breasts on a lightly oiled baking sheet and brush tops with 2 TBSP sour cream (we’ll be using more later). Press crust mixture into sour cream. Bake in oven until chicken is cooked through and crust is crispy, 12-15 minutes.
Halve lemon. Cut one half into wedges. In a large bowl, combine 1 TBSP sour cream (you’ll have some left over), a large drizzle of olive oil, a squeeze of lemon juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper. When potatoes are done, add to bowl along with spinach and toss to coat evenly. Season with salt and pepper
Divide salad between plates and top with chicken. Serve with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over.
