4 Ingredient Parmesan Chicken Breasts

This next easy chicken breast recipe is my own – and I REALLY need to take pictures of it (and I will soon).

The beautiful part of this simple chicken dinner recipe is that I use FROZEN chicken breasts.

Actually, I make this 4 ingredient chicken recipe with frozen chicken breast tenderloins (they’re smaller and cook faster, but you can use full-sized frozen chicken breasts if you prefer – just adjust your cooking time to be sure your chicken breasts are cooked thoroughly).

All you need to make my yummy 4-Ingredient Parmesan Chicken is:

Frozen Chicken Breast Tenderloins
Mayonnaise
Seasoned Meat Tenderizer
Grated Parmesan Cheese

Yep, that’s IT!

You probably have those four ingredients in your kitchen right now, don’t ya?



Here’s how to make it:

– Preheat your oven to 350 degrees –

– Line a baking sheet with parchment paper –

Trust me on this – it gets messy and you don’t want to clean an unlined pan

– Place your frozen chicken breast tenderloins on the lined baking sheet –

as many chicken breast pieces that fit or as many as you want

– Liberally sprinkle seasoned meat tenderizer over the chicken –

I don’t have an exact measurement for this, but just sprinkle away – can’t do it wrong

– Take a spatula and coat chicken breasts with mayo –

I probably use about one cup of mayo for a full baking sheet of chicken breasts, but don’t worry about amount – just coat the tops of the chicken. Be sure to put the mayo in a separate bowl – don’t be dipping your spatula back in the mayo container after touching the chicken with it!

– Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese all over the chicken breasts –

I use one of those 2 cup bags of grated Parmesan

Now, pop that baking sheet in the oven and cook for about 35-45 minutes – all depends on your oven.

When it’s done, you CAN sprinkle the jar type of dry Parmesan on top for an extra kick, but not necessary.

Sometimes, during the last 10 minutes or so of cooking, I’ll sprinkle some grated mozzarella cheese on top if I have it.

This chicken breast recipe is SOOOO stinkin’ good – and so simple.

I also use this same concept for those thin, boneless pork chops – YUM! (but I do NOT use frozen pork chops – I make sure they are fresh or defrosted first)

Wait… MAYO cooked on CHICKEN BREASTS?!?!!?

Everyone asks me that…lol!

Yes, MAYO cooked on chicken breasts!

The mayo makes the baked chicken SO moist and adds such a nice flavor – it does NOT taste like mayo when it’s cooked in.

Remember, mayo is an oil – it makes the chicken – and the pork chops – so moist, tender and YUMMY!
