Easy Tater Tot Casserole and Baked Chicken—Two Meals For One Busy Week

Baked Chicken:

I remember when my friend Lisa first told me about this recipe. It’s deliciously simple, but it’s one of the recipes she cherishes from her childhood. It just goes to show that recipes don’t have to be complicated to be remembered. If you haven’t cooked with your kids for a while, give it a try. Or, if your children are grown, try asking them what their favorite recipes of yours are. You might be surprised to hear the answer.

For this recipe you’ll need:

4 chicken breasts or any chicken parts you’d like

Milk or margarine for dipping

Bread Crumbs

Parmesan cheese



Garlic powder


To make this recipe:

Dip the chicken in milk or margarine to coat. Combine the remaining ingredients and coat each piece of chicken well. Line a baking pan with foil for easy clean up and bake the chicken at 350 degrees for approximately one hour.
