Parmesan Roasted Chicken

Dec 31, 2023

This is the best chicken I’ve ever made. It is perfectly juice, a little lemony, and crusted with parmesan cheese.


  • 4 bone-in skin on chicken breasts (or 2 breasts, 2 thighs)

  • 1 lemon

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated


  1. Zest lemon and mix zest with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel, then rub the salt mixture over it. Let sit at room temperature for 15 - 30 minutes.

  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place chicken breast side up on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil.

  3. Roast chicken for 20 minutes. Sprinkle all over with parmesan then roast for another 15 to 20 minutes until cooked through.
