There are days when going to the grocery store with 2 kids (ages 5 and 3) just isn’t worth the hassle. It was getting late afternoon and I realized that I didn’t have anything ready for dinner, but that is the worst time of the day to head to the grocery store because my kids are tired and cranky. I started surfing the internet, looking for something that I had all the ingredients for at home and came across this recipe. It took only a matter of minutes to throw together and was ready to eat before my husband walked through the door from work, making me look like the best wife in the world (don’t mind the mountain of clean laundry waiting to be folded on my bed . . . ). I paired it with a big green salad and it was a quick and easy meal that I will definitely make again (the flavor was delicious!).
1 cup light mayonnaise (or you could do 1/2 cup mayo and 1/2 cup plain yogurt)*
1/2 cup fresh Parmesan cheese, plus more for the top
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoning salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray the inside of a 9×13 glass pan. Lay the chicken inside the pan.
Mix together the remaining ingredients and spread evenly over each piece of chicken, being sure to cover all the exposed raw meat (so it doesn’t dry out.) Sprinkle on a bit more fresh Parmesan over all the chicken.
Bake for 45 minutes or until chicken is baked all the way through.
