Heroin Chicken

*There are no illegal substances in the ingredients of this chicken dish.*

It’s a name that gets your attention.  Though I’ve never done any sort of drugs so I wouldn’t know, this chicken dish claims to be addictive, much like heroin (apparently).  I was curious so I gave it a try, it was mostly ingredients I had on hand. 

My husband is not always the biggest fan of baked chicken, but he really enjoyed this.  It was easy to put together and really packed with flavor.  We had leftovers so the next day i sliced the chicken and we used it in a salad, which was great.  One tip is that I baked it on a cooling rack set over a cookie sheet and make SURE you cover that cookie sheet with aluminum foil to make cleanup easy! 


Heroin Chicken
Recipe from Food.com

4 pieces boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cups grated parmesan cheese
2 tbsp dried parsley
2 tbsp dried oregano
3 tsp paprika
1 tsp pepper
2/3 cup melted butter


Preheat oven to 350.  Set up your bowls for coating the chicken.  First put melted butter in a bowl or shallow dish.  In another bowl, combine  the cheese and seasonings.

Cover a rimmed backing sheet with foil, then place a cooling rack on top.  Dip each chicken breast first in the butter, then in the seasoned cheese mixture, then place on the baking sheet.  Bake 30-45 minutes until cooked through.

  1. I’m going to make this tonight, it looks great!! You might like to see my similarly named crackslaw (again, drug-free!) which is a low-carb stir fry, at crackslaw.com – I think if I was making heroin chicken I might add some minced garlic, or a pinch of dried garlic. I’ll try that anyway and let you know. Looks great!
