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!
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
- 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.
