I pin recipes like crazy, and I thought it was high time I make one of them!
This one I actually heard on the radio over and over, and it always sounded so good I knew I had to make it.
The original recipe comes from Best Foods, but I tweaked it a bit based on what I had on hand. It was sooooo good!
Easy Parmesan Crusted Chicken
( I threw the "easy" in there, because it is!)
4 chicken breasts
1/2 cup mayo
1/4 cup Parmesan (grated Kraft works fine)
1/2 sleeve Ritz crackers
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and spray your baking pan with cooking spray. Rinse chicken and pat dry, then place in your pan.
Mix mayo and Parmesan cheese in a medium bowl, then spread over chicken breasts.
No it does not look pretty at this point, but it's the same base I use for my spinach-artichoke dip and that stuff is the bomb so I was hoping this would be just as good. And I was oh so right.
Next, crush the crackers into fine crumbs (no big pieces) with a rolling pin, add the seasonings and mix. Sprinkle over chicken.
I smushed the crumb mixture down just a little.
Place the chicken in your preheated oven for about 15-25 minutes. The time really is based on how large the chicken breasts are. Mine were cutlets so they were a little thinner so it only took 15 minutes.
This is what they looked like when they came out of the oven. Yum.
And this is what they looked like on my plate. Double yum.
I served the chicken with parmesan noodles and the kids asked for seconds, which I consider a success!
Thanks for stopping by, and I hoe you'll come back and visit on Saturday when Simply Klassic Sunday goes live!
