Top your salad or create a baked chicken main dish with this chicken imperial recipe. Using a crumbly mixture with dried pantry seasonings, you’ll have dinner on the table in no time!


  • 2 Cups Italian Bread Crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/4 Cup Parsley Flakes
  • 1 Cup Butter, melted
  • 8 Skinless Boneless Chicken Breasts


  1. Preheat Oven to 325˚F.
  2. In a bowl, combine Italian Bread Crumbs, Garlic Powder, Salt, Pepper, and Parsley Flakes. Set aside.
  3. Melt butter and soak chicken breasts in it for 3-5 minutes. Roll each chicken breast into the bread crumb mixture—press mixture on each side. Roll the chicken breast into itself and place it into a 13×9 baking dish.
  4. Repeat until all chicken breasts are placed into the baking dish. Pour remaining butter over the dish.
  5. Bake at 325˚ F for 45 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 160˚ F.


Make-Ahead. I do not recommend making this recipe ahead of time as the breading mixture gets a bit soggy.

Store Leftovers Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Freezer. Freezer after the chicken has fully cooled in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
