Parmesan Chicken… Not Chicken Parm

Derek and I struggled with the name of this chicken.. He kept thinking we were having Chicken Parmesan when really we were just having Parmesan Chicken.. big difference.  This recipe is so delicious and filled with flavor. We tested it out a couple weeks ago and actually are repeating it tomorrow night!

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup light mayonnaise
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese + extra for the top
1 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt (reddish salt, not the regular salt)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
*I adapted this recipe since there is only two of us - if you double it to four chicken breasts, you will have enough of the seasoning mixture because we had some left over.  Can easily be tripled, quadrupled, etc. for bigger groups
Mix together all the ingredients other than the chicken (mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, seasoning salt, pepper, garlic powder)
Lay the chicken breasts in a greased pan and spread the mixture evenly over each piece of chicken - make sure to completely cover the chicken.  Sprinkle a little extra cheese on top.
Bake at 375 degrees, uncovered for 45 minutes
Enjoy!! We served ours with some potatoes and vegetables and the flavor of this dish is just delicious!

  1. Hahaha, I can totally see the disconnect with the name. It looks delicious, lady! Thanks for sharing! Stopping by from the linkup!

  2. Omg, that looks insane. Anything layered/smothered with cheese is totally up my alley!
    Also your puppy is ADORABLE!!! Is it a golden doodle? She looks a lot like my dog Cooper who is a mini poodle :) New follower!

  3. Oooh this looks amazing! We make something similar and call it Parmeson-crusted chicken so we don't confuse each other talking about dinner ideas :)

  4. This looks better than chicken parm! I cook chicken 2 to 3 times a week and always looking for new ways and recipes to make with it. Sounds like something we would love@

  5. YUM! This would be a huge hit in my house :)

  6. This look so good! Thank you so much for linking up at Tasty Tuesday! Your recipe has been pinned to the Tasty Tuesday Pinterest board! Please join us again this week!
