Parmesan Crusted Chicken

I love Longhorn Steakhouse and their Parmesan crusted chicken is pretty much the main thing Brian and I order so I recently decided to make it on my own and I must say it turned out pretty amazing. The entire meal takes about an hour and a half to prepare but it’s very easy.

Before we begin, I would recommend that you make sure you have a full bottle of ranch dressing or at least a nearly full bottle on hand.

Chicken Marinade


  • 4 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing
  • 3 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon juice from fresh lemon
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Put the chicken in a large freezer bag.
  • In a bowl mix all of the marinade ingredients and pour into the freezer bag
  • Seal the bag and shake it to fully coat the chicken
  • Put the chicken in the refrigerator and fully marinate for an hour

Preheat oven to 350°

  • When chicken is done marinating place it on a sheet pan and bake for 15 minutes
  • Flip the chicken and bake for an additional  15 minutes

Parmesan Sauce


  • 1/4 cup ranch dressing
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Parmesan Crusty Topping


  • 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 4 slices Provolone cheese (1 for each piece of chicken)


  • While the chicken is baking mix all of the ingredients for the Parmesan sauce in a bowl and set aside
  • In a second bowl mix together all of the ingredients for the Parmesan crust (except for the Provolone cheese slices) and side aside
  • When the chicken is finished baking set the broiler on low and spread the Parmesan sauce over the top of the chicken breasts, top with a slice of provolone cheese, and add a large spoonful of the parmesan crust over top. 
  • Place the chicken back into the oven for about 2 minutes. Keep an eye on the chicken- you want the provolone cheese to melt & the crust to look golden & crispy.
