Baked Parmesan Chicken

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.

  1. I’ve made this a few times and did not alter the recipe as some of the comments state. We love it just as you have it!

  2. Used low fat mayo mixed 50/50 with creamy caesar salad dressing. (Did mot need to salt the chicken.) Added a few drops of hot sauce (could use a sprinkle of cayenne) for a bit of heat. Mixed some black sesame seeds in with the panko & parmesan. Yum 🙂

  3. Made a few adjustments- only used regular salt, added 1/2 tsp of basil and oregano and 1 cup crushed corn flakes to the coating mix. Took out the garlic powder bc I was making for someone allergic to alliums. OMG- hands down the best baked chicken I’ve ever had. Thank you for the recipe and the inspiration!

    I LOVE this chicken. It is so delicious, i don’t know why anyone would eat chick any other way. I’m generally a fan of dark meat, but this recipe results in such moist delicious white meat I’m good with it. So crispy and tasty……
