This Oven-Baked Chicken Milanese Recipe Delivers Light + Crispy Goodness

It's ready on the dinner table in 35 minutes!

This chicken Milanese recipe is a fresh spin on the Italian classic that’s perfect when you want to indulge guilt-free. It’s an easy weeknight meal ready in 35 minutes and so easy to customize. Plus, lean chicken breast reduces the overall fat content and baking in the oven requires less oil. You’ll still get that golden crust, just without the grease! We brushed the chicken with ranch dressing before coating in crispy potato flakes to add creaminess and tangy flavor as well as a crunchy exterior. Let us know if you have a favorite breading to coat your chicken in below! For an extra touch of brightness, serve this dish with some lemon wedges and a fresh arugula salad.
