What to cook when You don’t have time to cook ? You know the feeling when you get home after a long day, it can be really hard to figure out how to cook healthy meals when you still have a million things to do and all you want to do is lie on the couch.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not whining. Anyway.
The point I’m trying to make is this, You’d have a set of “go-to” meals that could be made quickly with minimum effort and planning. This Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken is one of those meals that I have adored because I am always looking for easy recipes for chicken. I’ve had a few comments lately from some of you asking for simpler, easy dinner recipes that are kid-friendly too ! Take note everyone, this is one of them!
With 5 minutes of prep time and around 40 minutes of baking time – it’s totally true and totally amazing, making this dinner is probably even less work than going out or getting takeout, and– HELLO! It’s Chicken breasts, garlic, parmesan and bread crumbs baked in the oven with a drizzle of mayonnaise! What’s not to love?!

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: 4
  • ½ cup Mayonnaise
  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast cutlets.
  • 4-5 teaspoons Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ teaspoon lemon pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl combine mayo, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese.
  3. Moisten chicken breasts with water and lay on baking sheet (I line my baking sheet with parchment paper to make clean up easy)
  4. Divide the mayonnaise mixture evenly among the chicken, just spreading it across the top of each piece, and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, remove from oven and sprinkle bread crumbs on each piece of chicken.
  6. Return to oven and bake for additional 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked thoroughly and juices run clear.
  7. Tops will be browned and chicken will be incredibly juicy.
  8. You can also finish them off under the broiler for a minute or two to get them extra browned on top.
  9. Serve with a veggie like these delicious fresh broccoli that I steamed.
  10. Season with a dash of fresh parsley, if desired.

      Hi Josh,

    My husband and I just ate this for dinner tonight. YUMMMM!!! It turned out perfect! It’s just the two of us so I only made 2 breasts, and didn’t really measure the ingredients, just kinda threw stuff in a bowl and mixed it up. Turned out perfect!

      Hi Marienny! Thanks for the kind words and I hope y’all enjoy it!
      I’ve honestly never tried this with Provalone.
      Parmesan is a pretty unique cheese, so You need a very hard, dry cheese to sub for parm.
      Romano or Asiago cheeses are common subs for parmesan, and taste of Provolone can vary depending on the length of aging from a sweet mild flavor with a more creamy texture,
      to a distinct piquant taste and dryer texture, longer aging time. So maybe you could try with aged provalone cheese.
      Hope this help.

    I made this chicken tonight.
    It was flavorful but extremely tough and not at all tender.

    I think that I would cook if for lest time.

      I agree Shelly. I find that 20-25 minutes @ 400′ Is perfect. I’ve been making for years. Always tender and moist!
