Kathy’s Easy Peasy Chicken

Recipes - A Cup of Kathy

We eat chicken…a lot…so I’m always trying to come up with new ways to make it. 

I picked up some half-price Grade A boneless skinless chicken breasts at Shop Rite recently, and I was inspired to create Kathy’s Easy Peasy Chicken, which has now become a family favorite.

Here’s the ingredients:

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Mayonnaise (I used Hellmans Avocado Mayo)
  • Bread crumbs (I used regular bread crumbs; next time, I’ll try Panko)
  • Grated Parmesan cheese

Cooking Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Line baking dish (I used Corningware) with aluminum foil
  • I cut chicken breasts into quarters (I like the way they bake at that size) – if you don’t cut them, adjust the baking time to allow for the larger pieces of chicken to cook thoroughly
  • Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan (depends on how much of a coating you want) in a bowl
  • Scoop mayo into a separate bowl
  • Dredge one chicken piece in mayo to coat it and then dredge it in the bread crumb/Parmesan mixture
  • Place it on the foil in my baking dish
  • Continue to coat each chicken piece individually and place them in the baking dish
  • Once all the chicken is coated, bake the dish for 35 minutes (oven times may vary; adjust baking time if you leave the breasts whole)

The chicken came out so moist and delicious, everyone gave it a thumbs up and I was asked to make it again.  Naturally, my mind started racing.  I think next time I’ll top a cool, crisp salad with sliced chicken-quarter pieces for a perfect hot summer dinner.  And the time after that, I’ll fill wraps with a mixture of shredded lettuce, diced red seedless grapes, diced celery, sunflower seeds, diced chicken-quarter pieces and mayo. 

Do you have a favorite chicken recipe your family enjoys?

Drop me a line. I’d love to hear from you.
