Parmesan Crusted Chicken Breasts
Recipe courtesy of Hellmann’s
- 1/2 c. real mayonnaise
- 1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lbs.)
- 4 tsp. Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs
To get started, heat your oven to 425 degrees. Place chicken on a baking sheet or in a glass dish (I like to use a Pyrex dish).
In a medium bowl, mix the mayo and parmesan cheese.
Spread the mixture evenly over the chicken breasts, and then sprinkle Italian bread crumbs over the top.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
The topping helps keep the chicken moist and juicy. It comes out a little crispy and so full of flavor!
We paired our chicken with golden corn and creamy parmesan noodles. It was a huge hit among the entire family!
Everyone thought it was absolutely delicious, so I will definitely be making it again!
