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!
Parmesan Crusted Chicken
- ½ cup Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
- ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
- 4 teaspoons Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs (I make my own. So easy and cheap!)
Preheat oven to 425°.
Optional: I slice the chicken breasts in half to make them thinner, so I actually had 8 chicken breasts.
Combine Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise with cheese in a medium bowl. Arrange chicken on a baking sheet. Evenly top with the mayonnaise mixture, then sprinkle with bread crumbs.
Bake 20 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. (Less cooking time needed if you are using thin chicken breasts.)
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.
