Parmesan Crusted Chicken
2 large boneless chicken breasts (split in half lengthwise) or 4 chicken breast cutlets
1/4 cup mayonnaise (I used an olive oil based mayo)
3 rounded (heaped) tablespoons Parmesan cheese, shredded (I used Parmigiano Reggiano)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
Dash cayenne pepper
1/4 cup almond flour
1 tablespoon butter
Parmesan cheese, finely grated (to shake on chicken before baking)
Italian seasoning, (to sprinkle on chicken before baking)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil (I used non-stick) or parchment paper. Place your chicken breasts on the pan. In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise, shredded Parmesan cheese, black pepper and cayenne pepper until well blended. In a small non-stick skillet, melt butter and turn heat up to medium-high, add almond flour and stir frequently until it absorbs the butter and is lightly golden brown; be careful not to burn. The crumbs will be a little clumpy, but that's okay.
Spread or brush mayonnaise cheese mixture on the top of each chicken breast. Spoon the buttered almond crumbs on top. Lightly sprinkle each chicken breast with the finely grated Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning. Place in oven and bake 20 minutes or until golden brown and chicken is done (juices will be clear).
I am sooo doing this.. have all the ingredients :) Thanks!
This looks delicious! I have everything to make this without having to go to the grocery store. :) Found you via WB and going to check out more recipes now. Thanks!
I hope you like it -- it is simple and good!
This was fantastic! I'm adding it to our meal rotation. The chicken was moist, flavorful and had a nice crispy exterior. Even my chicken hating hubby gave it a thumbs up. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
So glad you liked it Tricia! It is so easy to make too...which makes it taste even better! ;-)
This is so yummy -- even the next day -- not as crispy -- but flavorful. Thank you for sharing your recipes!
Sorry - had to choose anonymous - I found you on WB facebook -- Terry Duncan
Thanks so much Terry -- glad you liked it.
My 9 year old granddaughter and I made this tonight. She had fun measuring and mixing the mayo topping and spreading it on. I did the stove and oven parts. I also made Zoodles for the first time (I got a Spiralizer for my birthday). I followed your instructions for non-watery noodles and they turned out great. As a side dish, I added some S&P and granulated garlic. Served the chicken and noodles with a salad and fresh fruit. Raves all around and my granddaughter was all smiles at the compliments for helping.
I think that's so sweet your had your granddaughter help with making dinner. Kids usually like eating things they helped make. So happy your Zoodles turned out nice too. Your dinner sounds great and I think it's great your granddaughter enjoyed preparing and eating such a healthy meal. :-)
