Easy Parmesan-Crusted Chicken

Making a low-carb breading for Parmesan-crusted chicken can be done in the time it takes to preheat the oven! Really! It doesn’t get much easier than throwing a few ingredients in a bowl and stirring them together. There’s just enough mayo (you’ll hardly taste it!) to moisten a mixture of grated Parmesan, green onions and garlic powder. Since baking time depends upon the thickness of the chicken breasts, take a minute to pound them with a mallet before placing them on a baking sheet. That way they’ll cook more evenly.

Easy Parmesan-Crusted Chicken


  • 4 (4-ounces each) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tsp fresh parsley, chopped


How to cook Easy Parmesan-Crusted Chicken

  1. Place chicken between two sheets of plastic film. Starting from the thickest part, pound the chicken with a meat mallet to flatten. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Arrange in a single layer on a lightly greased baking sheet or oven-safe baking dish.
  3. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, cheese, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder.
  4. Spoon the mixture over chicken fillets, spreading to cover the surface completely.
  5. Bake in a 400 F oven on middle rack for about 20 minutes or until thermometer inserted reads 165 F. If topping is browning too much before chicken is cooked through, loosely tent with foil.
  6. Remove from heat and allow to rest for about 3 to 5 minutes before slicing. Serve hot.
