Spicy Parmesan Crusted Chicken

I was trying to figure out what to make for dinner tonight, when I saw that we had TWO chicken breasts left. Yes, just two. I wanted to make something different (to post it here, of course) and what I came up with was a delicious entrée! The crispy outside and juicy inside of this chicken makes this recipe a definite keeper. You can make it without the cayenne if you don’t like spicy things!

This was a really simple and really delicious recipe! It took about half an hour total and is really easy clean-up if you use paper plates for the panko and the flour mixture! I served it with a broccoli fettuccini alfredo.
