Equipment

  • Oven

Ingredients

  • 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

  • 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.
  • Preheat oven to 375 F. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese and seasonings.
  • Place chicken into a 9x13 baking dish and spread the mixture evenly on top of the chicken
    breasts, and sprinkle with remain parmesan.
  • 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.
  • Serve with a veggie like these delicious fresh broccoli that I steamed. Season with a dash of fresh parsley, if desired.
