Chicken is quite possibly my favourite meat, but I’m getting really tired of doing the same things with it. I need a change! This Baked Parmesan Chicken recipe is great. It has tons of flavour and it’s really simple to make. Me and the Mr had ours with roast potato slices and roast cherry tomatoes, but you could have it with anything! Pasta, rice, salad, couscous… the midweek meal possibilities are endless.
Baked Parmesan Chicken Recipe
Here is what you will need to serve 2 (Easily doubled.)
- 2 Skinless Boneless Chicken Breasts
- Salt & Pepper
- 60g Mayonnaise
- 25g Parmesan Cheese, freshly grated
- 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
- 2 – 3 tbsp Panko Breadcrumbs
Preheat your oven to 200°C/Fan 190°C.
Line a baking tray with foil and place the chicken breasts on top. Season both sides with salt.
In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, parmesan & garlic powder. Divide the mixture between the two breasts & smear evenly all over the top. Season with a little salt & pepper.
Place into the oven to bake for 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven & top each chicken breast with some breadcrumbs. (Be careful not to burn yourself.)
Place back into the oven for a further 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the topping is crispy & golden.
Serve with whatever takes your fancy & devour immediately!
Both me and the Mr really enjoyed this. It’s simple but brilliant and the chicken was so tender & juicy! This one is definitely a winner winner chicken dinner and I will most certainly be making it again. You could even change it up a little, add some dried herbs into the mayonnaise mixture, mix together with some pesto or spice it up with some chilli flakes! It’s really versatile and a dish that will please the whole family.
I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time!
