  1. 2 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts halved horizontally to make 4
  2. 1/2 cup fresh Parmesan, finely grated
  3. 1 teaspoon salt and fresh cracked black pepper
  4. 1 teaspoon onion powder
  5. 1 teaspoon paprika
  6. 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  7. 3 tablespoon unsalted butter, divided
  8. 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  9. 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  10. 1/4 cup (60ml) vegetable or chicken stock
  11. Juice of one lemon (+ zest, if you like)
  12. Red chili pepper flakes, optional


1. To make the garlic butter parmesan chicken: In a shallow plate, combine parmesan cheese, onion powder, paprika, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Dredge chicken breasts in the parmesan mixture; shake off excess and set aside.

2. In a large non-stick skillet melt 2 tablespoons of butter over low heat. Cook chicken breasts until golden on each side and cooked through – about 5-6 minutes for each side, depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts (make not to burn the parmesan, if it browns too quickly, lower the heat). Transfer to a plate. If there is too much parmesan that got stuck to the bottom of the skillet, scrape with a wooden spoon and keep aside for sprinkling at the end. If Parmesan is burnt, just scrape and clean the pan.

3. In the skillet, stir in minced garlic and parsley and saute for 30 seconds. Deglaze with vegetable stock and lemon juice and add 1 remaining tablespoon butter. Cook the lemon garlic butter sauce for a couple of minutes to reduce, then add the chicken back to the pan to reheat quickly.

4. Adjust seasoning as needed and serve your garlic butter parmesan chicken breasts with red chili pepper flakes, lemon slices, and more parsley over cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles. Enjoy!
