You can bake chicken instead of searing  or cook this dish on the stove. Please refer to the recipe notes below.



  1. You can bake chicken breasts instead of searing. Preheat your oven to 450 F ( 235 C). Brush a skillet/ oven-safe dish with some vegetable oil, place chicken  breasts and bake for 15 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 F / 75 C. Then, remove from the oven, spread the Parmesan crust and top with panko mixture. Broil for another 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and crumbs are browned to your liking.
  2. Making Longhorn Parmesan Crusted chicken on the stove. Sear the chicken until cooked through in the large skillet/ pan. Spread the Parmesan crust on each fillet, cover the skillet with the lid and cook until cheese is melted. In the meantime, toast the panko mixture over medium-high heat in a small pan, until crunchy and golden brown. Once the cheese is melted, top each fillet with toasted bread crumbs. Enjoy!
