Chicken is the budget conscious cook’s best friend. Today Cloris offers us a chicken recipe that’s one of my favorites. -- AP

(serves 8)

1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
4 lbs. skinless chicken breasts
2 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 cup skim milk

Combine the bread crumbs, half the Parmesan cheese, oregano, and garlic powder in a heavy duty Ziplock bag. Shake to mix. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time. Shake to coat the chicken, then place the chicken in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Turn chicken and bake an additional 20 minutes.

Blend soup and milk. Pour over chicken. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese and paprika. Bake another 20 minutes.

Thanks, Cloris! I love this dish served over wide noodles with steamed brocolli How would you serve it?

This is a perfect recipe for winter. Steamed broccoli is ideal and grilled veggies is a favorite of mine.
