Oven Fried Parmesan Chicken

Oven Fried Parmesan Chicken

These quick and easy chicken breasts get their crunchy coating from mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. For taking mere minutes to throw together the results are impressive. The inside stays juicy, tender and succulent, while the coating is crispy and flavorful.

So good this was I ended up making them twice in one week! The first time I used bone-in chicken with the skin on and the result was just like fried chicken. Super crispy and delectable. If you’re looking for an alternative to frying chicken this is the closest thing I’ve found.

The second time I used chicken cutlets. With barely 10 minutes of prep and a 12 minute cooking time they were on the table in record time. I turned the broiler on for the last-minute or two to help crisp them up, with such a short cooking time they needed a little help in that department.

I turned the leftovers into chicken Parmesan by briefly baking them with sauce and mozzarella on top, then broiling them to get the cheese bubbly and golden brown. Served over pasta, it was a delicious way to reinvent the leftovers.

    I’m not exactly a mayo fan but my family has no qualms with it at all whatsoever…and they probably eat chicken cutlets at LEAST five times a week. So am I forwarding this on? You bet I am.

    Chicken looks good! Reminds me of one of the first chicken recipes I ever cooked as a teenager. The recipe didn’t have any description or picture. It was basically chicken, mayo, apricot jam, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Quite odd ingredients and I couldn’t imagine how it would turn out so I just had to give it a try! It ended up being completely delicious and I still make it every once in a while :) I can share the recipe with you if you want, I’ll bet Hellman’s mayo would work in it great. Have to admit I’m not particular about my brand of mayonnaise though I know many people are :)

    I admit, I have never had Hellmanns mayo. I’ve heard it’s better, but for some reason, I just never buy it. I will for sure give it a try though. These sound really good! Are we going to get mom’s famous potato salad recipe anytime soon? :-)

      She doesn’t use a recipe – it’s all in her head! I’ll try to pin it down by watching her make it. It probably won’t be until the weather gets warmer. It’s very fattening, tee-hee, and addicting!
