Garlic Parmesan Chicken is an easy weeknight meal option that kids love! Just 6 ingredients and dinner is made!
I’m always on the hunt for new easy weeknight meals. We don’t have any kiddos, but hubby and I are busy! There are some night I find it cathartic to come home and whip up a fancy meal, but other nights I want to binge watch something on TV.
Garlic Parmesan Chicken is a recipe that has been used for busy moms for decades. Sometimes called Mayo Chicken or Mayonnaise Chicken and other times Italian Parmesan Chicken (which is too close to Chicken Parmesan for me), I landed on Garlic Parmesan Chicken.
Baking mayonnaise right on top keeps the chicken juicy and is made with eggs, so instead of melting off the sides like some sauce would, it actually bakes up and holds all the yummy seasonings right on it. While some add the breadcrumb crust from the beginning, I prefer to add mine halfway through baking. This keeps the crust crunchy instead of getting all soggy.
