Who’s trying to eat healthier this year?
I am. Now that the holidays are over and it’s a New Year I’m making more of an effort to eat healthier and drink more water. One of my favorite things to eat that is healthy is chicken. If you’ve seen all the chicken recipes on the site you’d know it’s my meat of choice, but I just feel like there are so many things you can do with it and it’s always so good.
The recipe I’m sharing today is for a Parmesan Chicken Bake. Obviously, baking your chicken is much better than frying it and I was surprised just how flavor and tasty this was. Prep time takes under 5 minutes and then you can throw it in the oven for awhile (my favorite kind of recipe). The recipe calls for mayonnaise but for a healthier version I like to use non-fat vanilla or plain yogurt. You can also add a little more crunch by adding some bread crumbs or Panko crumbs on top.
It’s simple and delicious, so what more could you ask for?
- 6 chicken breasts
- 1 cup mayonnaise or 1 cup non-fat plain or vanilla yogurt
- ⅓ cup Parmesan cheese
- 1 tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. lemon pepper
- ½ tsp. garlic powder
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Place chicken breasts inside a greased 9x13 pan.
- In a small bowl mix mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Once well combined, spread over the tops of each chicken breast.
- Sprinkle on more Parmesan cheese if desired and bake for 40-45 minutes.
