Famous Melt in Your Mouth Chicken #recipes #chickenrecipes

How can a dish with only 6 ingredients taste SO good?

Don’t let the simplicity fool you. It’s also outrageously delicious! It’s always good to have a couple quick and easy recipes up your sleeve.

It all started when I was making my meal menu/grocery list for the week, I have a set of “go-to” meals that could be made quickly with minimum effort and planning, but there I was… stuck!

It was definitely a sick day!

Hopefully, chicken is a wonderful starting point for all kinds of easy meals, in addition of mayonnaise, parmesan cheese and a few easy seasonings. With 5 minutes of prep time and around 40-45 minutes of baking time – wonderful melt in your mouth chicken was ready.

Anyone who worked with chicken breasts before know that they can be incredibly versatile, yet also incredibly tricky to work with, especially when baked in the oven. Cook them the wrong way and you’ll end up with a dry, rubbery, tough, and flavorless disaster.
But cooked the right way?! We’re talkin’ juicy, tender, flavorful, perfectly baked chicken breasts that you will love.


You’ll Need:


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts trimmed of excess fat
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (or Greek yogurt for a healthier option)
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese (or sharp Cheddar, or Asiago) divided
  • 1 tsp seasoning salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder


Instructions:


  1. Cut each chicken breast into 3 large chunks or strips. Place chicken breast strips/chunks in a bowl of milk/buttermilk. Let it soak for 20 -30 min or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 F. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese and seasonings.
  3. Place chicken into a 9x13 baking dish and spread the mixture evenly on top of the chicken breasts, and sprinkle with remain parmesan.
  4. Bake for about 40-45 minutes, or until cooked through. You can also finish them off under the broiler for a minute or two to get them extra browned on top.
  5. Serve with a veggie like these delicious fresh broccoli that I steamed. Season with a dash of fresh parsley, if desired.
