“Your family will fill up on flavor with this delicious, juicy chicken dish. The spices and the Parmesan and Roamano cheeses give it a mouth-watering aroma and it is very simple to prepare. For the nights when your family isn't craving anything spicy, omit the crushed red pepper flakes and tabasco sauce. ENJOY!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pound chicken to about 1/2-inch thick; set aside.
  2. Combine the ranch dressing, tabasco sauce and cheeses in a small mixing bowl; set aside.
  3. In a shallow, wide dish combine the first ten (10) ingredients.
  4. To crust the chicken breasts, use a pastry brush to generously spread the dressing mixture on each one; roll them in the bread crumbs. Transfer the chicken to a rack set over a baking sheet. Air-dry the chicken for 20-30 minutes to help set the crumbs.
  5. Place the chicken in a pre-heated 425 degrees F oven. Bake for fifteen (15) minutes; lay the olives around the chicken and drizzle 1 (one) teaspoon of olive juice over each chicken piece. Continue baking another five (5). The coating should be golden brown and the chicken should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
  6. A side of fluffy white rice and a mixed green salad with a balsamic vinaigrette will make your dinner complete.
