Crazy Easy Parmesan-Crusted Chicken
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Only 4 ingredients and minimal effort yields tender, flavorful chicken perfect for a quick dinner!
  • Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Mayonnaise
  • Fresh, grated parmesan cheese
  • Breadcrumbs (I prefer Panko for the texture)
  1. Preheat oven to 350º F.
  2. Stab the chicken breasts on both sides a TON with a fork.
  3. Spread the chicken on both sides with a layer of mayonnaise.
  4. Sprinkle both sides liberally with fresh parmesan cheese, then dip both sides of the chicken in the breadcrumbs.
  5. Place chicken in a baking dish. Bake for about 30 minutes, until inside of chicken is no longer pink and the internal temperature reaches 160º F. Don't overcook to keep it moist and tender.
  6. I didn't provide measurements because this is a CRAZY EASY recipe and you don't need them! For two chicken breasts, it will probably take about ½ cup each of the mayo, parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs, but that's simply a guess. Just use what you need based on the size and the amount of chicken breasts you use!
