Baked Parmesan Chicken

I have been seeing this recipe everywhere on Pinterest.  So I thought it was time to give it a try.  Mind.blown.  Oh my amazingly delicious chicken!  Let’s just say my abnormally picky eater ate the whole thing!  You know what that means?  5 stars!  This was easy to mix all of the ingredients together and it came out perfectly!  Tons of delicious flavor in this chicken and the parmasan cheese makes it amazing!  I already invited my family over for dinner just so they could have this mind blowing experience!  Loved it.

Review: Honestly thinking about how delicious this chicken was makes me want more!  I always get nervous baking chicken and want them to be cooked throughout.  I always cut my chicken in half to make tenders.  Since I have a family of 4 I cooked this in a 9×9 and used 3 chicken breasts cut in half.  I also put a thin layer of the sauce on the bottom so that the chicken would be perfectly moist! 

6 chicken breasts
1 cup light mayonaise or greek yogurt (I used 1/2 of each and it was delish!)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, and reserve more for top
1 1/2 tsp seasoning salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder

1.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray.  Lay the chicken inside the pan.
2. Mix together all ingredients.  Spread the mixture evenly over each piece so that the chicken won’t dry out while baking.
3. Sprinkle the top with fresh parmesan on the top of the chicken.
4.  Bake uncovered for 45 minutes.  Enjoy!

    Hey Alyssa!

    This is my first time to your blog and I love it! I have to laugh because I had actually tried making this off Pinterest too a while ago and it looked like death coming out of the oven. We threw it out and ordered pizza! I’m not sure where i went wrong but it was bad! I’m excited to try it again now that theres proof it can be done – it looks so delicious! I’m also going to to try the Cheeseburger Soup – it all looks so good!

      Honestly I wasn’t really expecting this to turn out! Lol You need to give it another try! Try making it in a 9×9 pan like I did, keeping the ingredients the same and cutting the chicken breasts into tenders. This was so delicious! I am glad you found my blog!!

    I made something similar MANY years ago using a combination of mayonnaise and dijon mustard with the parmesan cheese and it was incredibly good. Even won a recipe contest with it!!!

    This is so moist and wonderful.

    Loved it. I used 3/4 teaspoon sea salt instead of the 1 1/2 teaspoons of seasoning salt called for (because I don’t ever have seasoning salt on hand!), and 1/2 cup mayo plus 1/2 cup sour cream. I will totally make this again.

    I tried this last night. We did all Greek yogurt, and I mixed in spaghetti parmesan cheese. The flavor was a bit overkill so I am wondering if you used the shredded parmesan throughout the whole recipe? Overall though it was very delicious and flavorful!

    • Alyssa says

      Hmmm I used shredded throughout. I don’t remember the flavor being overkill, I am going to have to make it again! :)

    I brine my chicken breasts..4 Large size chick breast (boneless skinless with or without)
    1/4 cup of kosher salt and 1/4 cup of sugar dissolve with water about 1 gallon of water sprinkle seasoning in it like oregano,pepper,garlic granules..let it brine over night or 4 hours in fridge…

    This is my hubby’s favorite recipe. You definitely want to use shredded parm. and not the spaghetti sprinkle cheese…it makes a HUGE difference!

    I’m going to try this tonight…thanks for the heads up on the different cheese types cause I was gonna cheat n use the shake out if a can parm. :-0 Have you tried this with bread crumbs? Just wondering if they would enhance or ruin this recipe?! New to your blog but going to read more because I have 3 picky eaters!

    • Alyssa says

      I don’t think that you would need the bread crumbs. :) and I can point you into the right direction on any picky eater approved recipes. Hehe. My youngest is the pickiest!!

    I was wondering if this could be converted into a crock pot recipe. If so how long do you think it would take to cook and would you adjust the ingredients at all?? Thanks love the site!

    I’ve been making this once a week since I read the recipe! It’s soooo good. I’ve even added capers and chopped artichokes to it and it’s delish!
