What's Cooking?

Parmesan Crusted Chicken {Hellmann's Mayo Recipe} ...this recipe is super quick and easy.  I made it for the first time last week and all the boys loved it.  It's on this week's meal plan and will be making the rotation quite a bit.

Parmesan Crusted Chicken
(adapted from Hellmann's/Best Foods)
serves 4

1/2 cup Hellmann's or Best Food's Real Mayonnaise
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
4 boneless skinless chicken breast cutlets, about 1 1/4 lbs. total weight or about 5 ounces per breast
4 teaspoons Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs

1.  Place mayo and cheese in a small bowl and mix. 
2. Lay chicken breasts on baking sheet (I line my baking sheet with parchment paper to make clean up easy) and spread mayo mixture evenly atop each. Note: I butterflied each breast to cut down on cook time.
3. Next evenly sprinkle bread crumbs atop each. 
4. Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked thoroughly and juices run clear. Tops will be browned and chicken will be incredibly juicy. You can also finish them off under the broiler for a minute or two to get them extra browned on top.
5. Season with a dash of fresh cracked pepper and sea salt, if desired.  
6.  I will be serving mine with steamed veggies, cranberry sauce and either rice or mashed potatoes.
