Baked parmesan chicken

I had seen this recipe floating around on Pinterest for awhile and wanted to try it (hellooooo...remember my "under 5 ingredients" fetish), but my desire was solidified when I read on a friend's blog that she made it and her hubby and her just loved it! Thanks Desiree! If you want to check out her blog...head on over HERE for yummy recipes, adorable craft projects, and updates on the DIY projects she's done recently preparing for the coming arrival of their first child!

4 chicken breasts
1/2 cup mayo (I used fat free)
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
4 T Italian bread crumbs

Since I only did 2 chicken breasts, I halved all the other ingredients as well...

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a small mixing bowl, combine the mayo and parmesan. Place the chicken boobs (that will never get old!) on the baking sheet and spread with the mayo micture. Sprinkle 1 T of bread crumbs over each chicken breast and bake for 20 minutes.

Overall, I thought it was good...I would maybe use light mayo instead of fat free next time to give it a little more flavor. I would like to eat more chicken breasts, but I have to dress them up somehow for Justin, and this just didn't do it for him. Oh, he ate it, don't get me wrong...I just got the "It's alright...." when I asked if he liked it. He's learned that we try so many new recipes that he doesn't have to worry about most things popping up in the queue again unless it was something we both WOW'ed this probably won't be a make again unless I add some spices to the crumbs on top...maybe I will play with this one a little since it was SO easy!  Happy rainy Thursday....

  1. You can add some dijon mustard not a lot of calories but alot of flavor.

  2. That's a great idea! I have a favorite that I keep at home all the time too...I will have to try that next time, thanks for the suggestion!

  3. I have a recipe very similar to this... I use light mayo and a mixture of Tastefully Simple spinach and herb dip mix and parm cheese. You cover the chicken in the mayo then roll it in the dry mix. Its amazing!!

  4. Ashley, I have a ton of the Tastefully Simple products! The onion onion and the garlic garlic mixed together would be awesome for this...what a great suggestion, thanks!
