Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken


FANTASTIC! This was a great baked chicken. I changed some things to make it even more flavorful for us. For the breadcrumb mixture I substituted "pepperidge farm herb stuffing" instead of plain bread crumbs and also added 1 tsp oregano along with the basil. I used 4 large chicken breasts and used 4 tbsp olive oil and 2 cloves garlic. I also sprinkled a little salt and pepper on the chicken breasts before dipping them into the oil/garlic mixture. Oh to make this easier, use 2 pie pans for the dipping. It's so much easier than a bowl.. unless the chicken breasts are smaller or tenders. I did not think there was too much breadcrumb mixture as other reviewers said. I did have a little bit of each leftover (oil and breadcrumb), so I first drizzled what was left of the oil on the prepared chicken breasts in the pan, and then sprinkled what was left of the breadcrmb mixture over this. Then I sprinkled all of this with some garlic powder. It took about 40 minutes for the chicken to be done. It was SO MOIST and SO FLAVORFUL. Better and SO MUCH EASIER than my usual parmensan chicken recipe. WILL MAKE AGAIN AND AGAIN.


    ½ cup Mayonnaise
    ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
    4 boneless skinless chicken breast cutlets.
    4-5 teaspoons Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs
    ½ teaspoon garlic powder
    pinch of salt
    ½ teaspoon lemon pepper


    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    In a small bowl combine mayo, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese.
    Moisten chicken breasts with water and lay on baking sheet (I line my baking sheet with parchment paper to make clean up easy)
    Divide the mayonnaise mixture evenly among the chicken, just spreading it across the top of each piece, and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
    Bake for 15-20 minutes, remove from oven and sprinkle bread crumbs on each piece of chicken.
    Return to oven and bake for additional 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked thoroughly and juices run clear.
    Tops will be browned and chicken will be incredibly juicy.
    You can also finish them off under the broiler for a minute or two to get them extra browned on top.
    Serve with a veggie like these delicious fresh broccoli that I steamed.
    Season with a dash of fresh parsley, if desired.
