Crispy Parmesan Garlic Chicken with Zucchini

Crispy Parmesan Garlic Chicken with Zucchini is a fantastic one pan meal that the family will love! The chicken is so tender and breaded with an amazing parmesan garlic crust and the zucchini is sautéed in a delicious buttery parmesan garlic!

Zucchini is my favorite veggie. So I get pretty excited when it is actually in season even though I buy it all year long. My favorite way to eat zucchini is to sauté it until tender. I could eat it with every meal.

The awesome thing about this recipe is that I had all of the ingredients on hand. It was dinner time and I was staring in my pantry wondering what I should make. One of our favorite things is this Crispy Parmesan Garlic Chicken. My entire family devours it. We love the crispy flavorful crust on the chicken.

So I decided to put the two together and the result was delicious! A crispy delicious chicken with tender zucchini that is full of flavor and only require one pan.

The less dishes that I have to do the happier that I am. ??

Lets just take a second to discuss the amazing flavors in this meal. First of all anything with parmesan and garlic is already a winner in my book. But it coats the chicken perfectly and gives it such a crispy texture to the tender and juicy chicken. What I especially love is removing the chicken and sautéing the zucchini in a buttery garlic parmesan sauce. And the crispy sediments of the chicken also are incorporated in the sauce. IT IS AMAZING!

This is a simple 30 minute meal that is full of flavor and my favorite vegetable is the star of the dish! You guys are going to love this one.

Serves: 4


2 Chicken Breasts, sliced in half, or 4 thin chicken breasts

8 Tablespoons butter, divided

½ cup Italian Bread Crumbs

½ cup plus 1 Tablespoon grated parmesan, divided

¼ cup flour

2 medium zucchini, sliced

2 garlic cloves, minced


In a large skillet over medium heat melt 2 Tablespoons butter. To make the chicken: Melt remaining 4 tablespoons of butter in a shallow dish. In another shallow dish combine bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, and flour. Dip the chicken in the butter and then coat in the bread crumb mixture and place in skillet.

Cook on each side for about 3-4 minutes until the outside is crispy and the chicken is cooked throughout. Set aside on plate.

Add 2 Tablespoons of butter back to the skillet and saute the minced garlic for a minute. Add the zucchini to the skillet and saute until tender. Salt and pepper to taste and add some 1 Tablespoon parmesan. Add the chicken back to the skillet and heat for a minute or so. Serve immediately.

Made this for dinner tonight and it tasted absolutely fabulous! And zucchini is always my favorite! My only problem is with no matter what recipe I try I can never get this tin of breaded coating to stick on my chicken. It always just kinda falls off and I have to scrape it back on at the end, still delicious though!

Made this for dinner last night. I used chicken tenderloins instead of breasts. My seven year old helped with coating the chicken so we had fun making this recipe. Great flavor! Everyone loved it. Definitely a keeper. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

This was amazing!! I did add more Italian seasoning. Also, when I sauteed the squash and zucchini, I added fresh tomato. I sprinkled parmesan over it all at the end. My husband, who is on Hospice and doesn’t have a big appetite, loved it!! Thank you so much!!

I LOVE this recipe- thank you for posting it. The zucchini was perfect. I didn’t have a pan big enough, so I cooked the chicken on a flat top indoor grill and the zucchini in the pan. The only other change I made was adding crushed red pepper flakes into the bread crumb mixture for a little spice.

I tried the recipe for Crispy Parmesan Garlic Chicken with Zucchini tonight. It was really simple to prepare and was absolutely delicious. The zucchini had so much flavor from the garlic and butter and bits of breading – Yummy! I will definitely make this again.

Hey Alyssa, Thanks for the recipe. Totally love it. I have always been searching for recipes that use zucchini and this surely is a good one. Was wondering if I can use fish instead of chicken and also can I get the nutritional value of this recipe? Thanks much!!

I like to use skinnytaste.com or myfitnesspal.com for any nutritional information that I may have. Hope that you are able to find what you are looking for. Thanks so much for following along with me! XOXO

I made this last night and my family loved it! It’ll definitely become part of our regular meals. I used the leftover breading (that hadn’t come near the chicken) to make zucchini-corn fritters for lunch today. I’d only ever used plain flour in the fritters before, but love the taste that the Parmesan coating added!

Amazing. So tasteful! The junky thingnindid different was toss my zucchini in olive oil, salt, hint of pepper, and roasted tomato garlic seasoning and then out it in the pan. I made it with a side of pesto shells pasta. Omg yum.

Hi there! ?? I have a question! I loveeee your crispy Parmesan and zucchini recipe in the pan, but every time I make it the coating falls off and it just turns into chicken breast with coating on the side ?? Do you have any suggestions to keep the coating on? More or less butter?

Also, my biggest problem when I cook (I’m bad, like bad bad haha) is I can’t keep the food hot and it’s cold by the time I serve it even two minutes later. I’d love a suggestion for that as well!! ?? Thank you!!

I have not used my air fryer enough to know what is best but I think the instructions should guide you on the air fryer how to fry the zucchini. I would love to hear how you used your air fryer. Enjoy!
