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 did half Parmesan and half pecorino Romano. I also used half Italian breadcrumbs and half Panko. I used olive oil mayo because that is all I had in the fridge. I also sprayed with cooking spray before and when there was 10 minutes left and cooked for 30 minutes! These were amazing! My husband loved it! I drizzled mine with lemon because i love lemon but it was great without it!

  2. Tried this tonight for my husband and myself. Used one large and one small/medium size breast and my cooked great his was a little chewy so could have used the full 35. I did it exactly like you mentioned with spraying the top and it was great! I think I’ll try this also on a white fish. Yum! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Tried this recipe, but it didn’t turn out very good. I’m sure some people like it, but the taste just wasn’t working for me.

    1. I spray “Pam” on my chicken halfway throuh baking, it came out crispy
      and crunchy. It was very good. My husband even liked it. The key is , you have to bake it on a high temperature

  4. This looks SO crispy and perfect, I almost need a piece for breakfast! Love that mayo trick – brilliant!

  5. This looks amazing! I love that mayonnaise trick. I make chicken parm and shallow-fry the chicken. I can’t believe this was baked and looks so incredibly browned and crisp.
