Parmesan Crusted Chicken {and the Hellmann’s Chicken Change Up}

Given a choice between cooking or cleaning, you know what I’m gonna pick, right?  I’d pretty much rather be messing around in my kitchen than doing any other household chore, but just because I want to doesn’t mean I always get to. 

This Parmesan Crusted Chicken recipe from Hellmann’s is a delicious 10 minute prep meal that my whole family loved, and a great reminder that I can fix fabulous food without spending all day in the kitchen!

I truly was shocked at the bold flavor Hellmann’s added to my chicken.  Delicious!  Since I usually buy my chickens whole from a local farmer, I’m ready to try adapting this recipe into some type of casserole using shredded chicken.  Yum!

Based on the recipes I see on Pinterest and linked up to Menu Plan Monday, lots of you are fans of the time-saving chicken breast, and who can blame you?  They are quick and easy to fix, and you can prepare them many delicious ways.  If you’re a chicken breast pro, you may want to check out the  Hellmann’s® Chicken Change-up on Facebook.

Hellmann’s® “Chicken Change-Up” aims to help parents manage dinner dilemmas in kitchens across America – and they want to hear what it’s like at your house!  (Uhhh, do they really want to know?!)

From now until April 30, 2012, parents across the country can participate in the Hellmann’s® Chicken Change-up by trying one of the featured Hellmann’s® chicken recipes, sharing their recipe reviews and providing their own advice for managing dinnertime obstacles.  After participating, consumers can enter into a sweepstakes for the chance to win a $5000 grocery store gift card and other daily prizes.  (Free grocery money?  Yes, please!)

Ok.  So let’s say you have some chicken breasts ready to go in your fridge and less than an hour until dinner time.  What’s your favorite fast fix?  (Or are you a sucker for the whole chicken like me?)

  1. This sounds really good – and easy, which is my favorite. 🙂 I’m definitely trying this!

  2. We eat chicken breasts all.the.time. They are so easy & versatile! I know exactly what you mean about no leftovers too! I can not imagine what my boys will eat when they are teens! They are constantly hungry at 5, 7 and 9!

    • Teenage years = frightening. 😉 I always thought (and still do!) I wanted to be the “go to” house where all the friends hang out. But then I’ll need even MORE food!

  3. That does sound good! I usually pan-fry mine with Italian dressing if I’ve forgotten to put them in the crock pot. If you let them brown a little on each side in the pan, they get a really good flavor. And they’re delicious sliced on top of a big salad.

    • I like to grill them (marinated in a combo of italian dressing and bbq sauce… sounds weird, but delicious!) and do the same thing with the salad. In fact, that’s what we’re having tomorrow night!

  4. This sounds wonderful. I have been in such a cooking rut and I always have chicken in the freezer. Thank you…….

    This recipe is a real family favorite, but I always season the chicken with salt and pepper and a bit of garlic powder first. Layering the seasoning adds another dimension of flavoring!
