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!

  • 1 tsp garlic powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Lay the chicken inside the pan.

  1. 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!

    1. 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!!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

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

  5. 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…

  6. 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!

    1. Yes Nicole, Thank you for clarifying the shredded parmesan cheese through out. Ingredients mention parmesan cheese, but which one? Its not until you put it together that it actually mentions FRESH shredded parmesan cheese. Makes a BIG DIFFERENCE.

  7. 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!

    1. 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!!

  8. 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!

  9. 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!

  10. I love the simplicity, yet the tastiness. I actually added some Lays Ranch seasoning, and sour cream to the mixture, and then Panko bread crumbs coupled with the parmesan chess on top. I think it gives the meal a little more savor, and texture. 🙂 Thanks for this recipe!

  11. I love the simplicity, yet the tastiness. I actually added some Lays Ranch seasoning, and sour cream to the mixture, and then Panko bread crumbs coupled with the parmesan cheese on top. I think it gives the meal a little more savor, and texture. 🙂 Thanks for this recipe!

  12. Made this tonight, my kids absolutely love this. I even have a picky eater who doesn’t like anything. I added a little more garlic since we love garlic and bacon and it turned out great. My hubby loves this too and can’t wait to make it again

  13. I love this recipe! It is so easy. I make chicken Caesar sandwiches with this and my family asks for them all the time.
    Lightly toast good buns or hogie bread in the oven, remove and spread with Caesar salad dressing then stack romaine lettuce, the chicken and a little extra parmesan! So delicious!

  14. I made this and it was good. It had a great flavor; however I think it should be more saucier. I served it over spaghetti. So it just seemed like good flavor chicken cubes on top of spaghetti.

  15. My husband and I loved it! It’s just the two of us, so I did two chicken breasts and used the Greek yogurt and baked in a 9×9 pan. It turned out perfect!

  16. I can’t wait to try this recipe! I’ve tried other recipes but it usually comes out very salty and I think I know why. I used spaghetti Parmesan so I’m gonna try the fresh. Thank y’all for all the tips!
