Low Carb Parmesan Chicken

 

Lo Carb Chicken

Lo Carb Chicken

This is an adaption of Best Foods “Parmesan Crusted Chicken” .  I deleted the bread crumbs because I want this recipe to be low carb, and added chives and roasted garlic to kick up the flavor a notch. I roasted the garlic in olive oil on Sunday, so I can use in multiple recipes this week – roasted garlic seems milder to me yet far more flavorful.  This recipe took 5 minutes to prepare and 25 minutes to cook.  Dinner in 30 minutes and I caught up on my emails while it baked – nice!

Ingredients:

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/2 cup Best Foods mayonnaise

1/3 cup Pecorino Parmesan fresh grated cheese

3 Tbl fresh chives, chopped

8 roasted garlic cloves

Method:

  • Pat dry chicken breasts and slice each breast in half.  Line a baking pan with tin foil and place the four breasts in pan.
  • Mix mayo, cheese, chives and garlic.  Divide into 4 and then spread on the breasts.
  • Bake for 25 minutes in 425 degree oven.  Chicken should have a lovely, bubbly crust on top.

Serves:  4 portions
