Easy Parmesan Crusted Chicken

By the end of the day, when it's time to cook dinner, I want something that is quick to prepare.  I seek recipes that fit that qualification because, I usually only have 30 minutes to hurry and whip something up before it's time to eat!  This recipe fits that description and is easy, Easy, EASY!!!

Easy Parmesan Crusted Chicken

3 cups Corn flakes (really any cracker you have on hand will do)
1 cup Parmesan cheese 
1 tsp Pepper 
1 tsp Garlic Salt 
1 tsp Italian seasoning 
2 eggs
4-6 chicken breasts
1 to 3/4 cup Italian dressing

Crush corn flakes. A trick I learned from my grandma is to save a cereal bag and crush your corn flakes in that with a rolling pin. Pour into pie or cake pan. Add the parmesan cheese, pepper, salt, and Italian seasoning to the corn flakes.  In another pie pan beat the eggs. Now set up an assembly line. 1st chicken, 2nd eggs, 3rd corn flake crust, 4th baking pan.   Using just one hand (leaves one hand free of getting chickenified) dip the chicken in the egg on both sides. Then press both sides of the chicken in the corn flake crust.  Put in a 9 x 13 baking pan. Continue dipping assembly line until all chicken breasts are crusted. Once they are all lined up and covered in corn flakes, drizzle Italian dressing on top of each piece of chicken.  Bake at 425 for 20 min or until chicken is cooked all the way through.  I served mine over romaine lettuce but of course pasta is a good choice too.
