Parmesan Crusted Chicken
Ok, we are going to make this short and sweet, today. The snow is falling, there is only an hour of naptime left, and between finding out that Season 2 of Downton Abbey is only on PBS.com until March 7th (and I haven't even started it) and still trying to find a house to rent, my mind is really, utterly blank. It seriously took me a good five minutes to just write that.
This chicken has been calling to me for a while now. Have you guys seen the commercial for the Hellmann's Parmesan Chicken? They play it all the time here. We don't watch a whole lot of tv, but it seems I have been inundated with it enough for me to finally give in and try it. And oh mama! This has got to be one of my new favorite ways to make chicken. It's easy, fast, cheap, and sooo delicious!! We have probably had this 4 or 5 times in the last month, I just can't stop making it!!
Parmesan Crusted Chicken (Hellmann's)
Yields: 4 servings
1/2 cup mayonaise (the real stuff!)
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
4 tsp Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs (or plain bread crumbs with a little dried parsley, rosemary and thyme leaf thrown in there).
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a small bowl, combine the mayo and parmesan.
Place chicken on a baking sheet and top evenly with the mayonnaise mixture.
Sprinkle the seasoned bread crumbs on top.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
