Copycat Noodles & Co. Parmesan Crusted Chicken

copycate noodles & co. parmesan crusted chicken


Are you the type of person when going to a favorite restaurant orders the same thing or do you try something different every time you go?  I am one of those creatures of habits and will order the same thing each time I go to a favorite restaurant. That’s why I want to go to that particular restaurant.

I’m like that when it comes to Noodles & Co. I order the same dish, Pasta Fresca (working on a copycat recipe for this) with Parmesan cheese and Parmesan Crusted Chicken. I love that chicken!!  Every time I eat it I think I need to make a recipe for it.

This is a pretty darn close copycat. My crust on this chicken isn’t quite like theirs, but the seasonings are perfect. It was super, super easy to make. This will be perfect for a busy weeknight.

Copycat Noodles & Co. Parmesan Crusted Chicken
  • 4 to 5 chicken tenders
  • olive oil
  • ¼ cup plain bread crumbs
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  1. Preheat a skillet on medium high heat.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix the bread crumbs, cheese, Italian seasonings and garlic powder. Set aside.
  3. Prep your chicken by lightly pounding each piece until fairly thin. Don't make it so thin that the chicken tears.
  4. Dredge the chicken tenders in the seasoning mix.
  5. Lay each chicken piece in the skillet. Leave the chicken in place for several minutes, this allows it to get a nice crisp crust.
  6. After about 4 minutes, flip the chicken and allow the other side to get crispy.
  7. Cook for an additional 4 to 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

    Noodle & Co. is my favorite restaurant, and their Parmesan Chicken is amazing on the Pesto Cavatappi. Whenever I go out on a limb to try something else, there other dishes are delicious but nothing is quite as perfect as Pesto Cavatappi with Parmesan Chicken!

    I just made this. I had to change the italian spices since my mom and i have severe allergies. I like it. I kinda over cooked it a bit but other than thst its really good.

  10. Couldn’t get the seasoning to stay on my chicken in the pan so I just had burnt bits of parmesan and breadcrumbs. I’ve never had this much of a failure cooking anything. Any idea why?
