This super crispy and golden Baked Parmesan Chicken is one of my favorite baked chicken recipes. And it is so easy!
Boneless chicken breasts are coated in mayonnaise that has been seasoned with seasoned salt, paprika, and garlic powder. Then they are pressed in a mixture of Panko crumbs and grated Parmesan cheese.
The mayonnaise does something magical to make the chicken stay super moist and tender.
Just 30 to 35 minutes in the oven and these golden chicken breasts are ready to be served up.
The Panko crumbs get super crispy and mixing them with Parmesan adds plenty of flavor. You could also use store bought or homemade bread crumbs, but I especially like the Panko crumbs.
I love to serve Baked Parmesan Chicken with Parmesan Rice or garlic shells and steamed broccoli. This is a super simple weeknight meal the whole family will love.
