Parmesan Chicken Bake


Visiting family is such a bitter sweet experience for me.  It is so amazing to spend time with those I love most, but I suffer from such depression after it is over.

After two weeks visiting my parents in Ohio, we are headed back home to Minnesota.  It will be tough on me, but it is so heartbreaking to see how tough it is on my kids.  They have had two weeks packed with wonderful memories that I hope will get them through until next summer.

If you are blessed to have family close by (and by that I mean under a 2 hour drive), be grateful and spend more time with them.  Those of us who only get to see family a couple times a year are very jealous!!!
I am always on the hunt for a great chicken dinner and this is one!  The only problem with this recipe is that it requires you to turn on the oven.  So wait for a cooler day (like under 90) and give it a go.  You won't be disappointed!  It is delicious and even better the next day as leftovers.  I make two pans at a time :)

Parmesan Chicken Bake
(adapted from Food.com)
6 chicken breasts
1 C light mayonaise or greek yogurt (I have done 1/2 of each as well)
1/2 c fresh parmesan cheese, plus more for the top
1 1/2 tsp seasoning salt (This is NOT regular table salt.  It is a mixture of seasonings)
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray the inside of a 9x13 glass pan.  Lay the chicken inside the pan.
2.  Mix together the remaining ingredients and spread evenly over each piece of chicken, being sure to cover all the exposed raw meat (so it doesn't dry out.)  Sprinkle on a bit more fresh parmesan over all the chicken.
3.  Bake uncovered for 45 minutes.  This dish is even better the next day, so just reheat in the microwave!
**Some have commented that this dish was way too salty.  Please be sure you are using fresh parmesan cheese, not the stuff from a can.  Also, use seasoning salt, NOT table salt.  I have made this multiple times and have never had trouble with the salt level.  If you are worried, use less.

I recently posted this as "melt in your mouth chicken". I definitely reduce the amount of mayo - there's just no reason to use an entire cup. Yummy stuff!!

Hi There, i dont have any boneless chicken is that going to work still?

Kelly said...

Can I use frozen chicken breasts?

Nicki said...

Is the recipe calling for bone-in chicken breast, or skinless boneless chicken breasts? I can't tell is there is skin on those of not.

amanda said...

Sorry the spelling police cannot let the misspelling in the picture slide.

This looks really delicious though and I actually have all the ingredients. Thank you.

Carole said...

Nicki - sorry for not being more specific. I used boneless and skinless. I think bone in chicken woul be fabulous but I would remove the skin because I would be mushy.

This sounds so yummy! I know how hard it is to live far from home. I'm originally from east central MN, and now I live in IL with my fiance. I've been here about a year, and it's so lonely without my family close by! :( I know how you feel.

STFU spelling Nazi
Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Carole said...

I just have to chuckle about the whole spelling thing. For those offended, I am sorry. Obviously, it was a mistype on the picture because I got it right four other times throughout the post :)

I should probably change it, but the comments are just too much entertainment for me.

Stephanie said...

I didn't even notice the spelling error! I was too busy looking at that fabulous chicken!

Does anyone know if you can use miracle whip?

Unknown said...

Bahahaha I can't help but laugh that someone actually asked you to change the spelling aaannddd said it turned them off to the recipe LMAO!

Anonymous said...

This looks so yummy! Have you actually used just the Greek yogurt with no mayo?

Carole said...

You probably could use it but it would be a lot tangier in flavor and wonder how well that would go along with the parmesan cheese.

Carole said...

I have made it with all yogurt. It was good but I preferred the half and half better though

Anonymous said...

Do you bake the chicken covered with foil? Or uncovered?

Carole said...

Definitely uncovered or you will end up with a soupy result.

Sounds great! Am going to give it a try

Lisa said...

Most of my family is within two hours. I am at this moment planning an 80th birthday party for my mom. All the family will be there. I will definitely remember to be thankful! Thanks for the reminder!

This sounds so yummy! Thanks for sharing. And I didn't even notice the spelling thing until I read another comment (had to scroll back up and look at it haha)

sweatingforit.com said...

Is there a way to make this using a crock pot? It's just too hot to use my oven right now. Thanks!

Carole said...

I have never tried the crock pot. I'm sure it would work, just a soup-ier end result and if not closely watched, it could become tough by cooking it too long. That is always the biggest risk with cooking chicken in a crock pot.

Made ths tonight with bone-in chicken thighs, was a HUGE hut!!!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Have you made it with the Greek yogurt before or just the mayo?

Tara said...

I have the opposite problem. My family lives in Minnesota but I live in West Virginia. 16 hour road trip now that my 2 year old is too old to share my plane seat. Where in MN are you? I grew up in St. Louis Park but my mom (who is visiting us right now) recently moved down to Owatonna.

Tara said...

Oh, I just saw you're in Marshall. My brother lives in New Ulm, sort of that direction. You prob have to drive past it to get to the big big city, Mankato - ha!

Back2BasicsMom said...

Definetly adding this to m list to try in the next few days (when the weather let's up). It looks super good!

I am in MN too and have lived here for 13 years. I am from the seacoast of Maine and New Hampshire. I am taking the kids for a 3 week visit in August and I can totally relate. I do not even get to visit every year. Our last was 2 summers ago.

I tell my local friends who have all their family close by to be thankful, especially when I hear them complaining. :)

Ellen Stewart (aka Ellie/El/e/Mrs. Seaman) said...

Trying this tonight. Thanks for sharing.

As for the family thing, my mom died when I was 31, my father when I was 40. So even though your family is far, they're still here. I'm not scolding or schooling you, but just pointing out the blessing you're already aware of!

Lauren Anders said...

Do you cover the dish while it bakes? Thanks for an easy, hopefully delish dish!

Carole said...

Very true Ellen. Thanks for the reminder and the appreciation for what I have!

Carole said...

No cover needed!

Deron & Christy: said...

Have you tried prepping this meal, then freezing if until ready to make? Just wondering if it would hold up in the freezer

Carole said...

I haven't tried it as a freezer meal yet. I have quite a few other freezer meals on my blog, but just haven't tried this one yet. My first thought is that it should work great. If you try it, come back and let me know how it worked!

Anonymous said...

Is using a smaller glass pan ok? I done need to fix 6 beasts, maybe just 3-4

Carole said...

Absolutely, but I would reduce the sauce as well. If you do 3, then cut the recipe in half.

Anonymous said...

Is the Parmesan cheese shredded or like grated?

Carole said...

It really doesn't matter, just use fresh. I buy the already grated fresh parmesan cheese in the refrigerator section, but if you have a wedge at home, just grate up a cups worth!

How do you think it will taste with Dukes Mayo? I'm making tomorrow.

This was yummy! I made it tonight - super easy and best of all, my 7 and 9 year olds liked it! Thank you!!!

Anonymous said...

I made this and it didn't quite turn out the way it looks in the picture... I cooked it for longer and it just stayed completely white, did not brown. Any tips or tricks? It was also "soupy," as you like to say :(

Carole said...

Three thoughts: 1. Be sure you sprinkle on extra cheese on the top of the dish. 2. I bake mine on the second from the top level of my oven 3. Did you cover it with foil? That would make it soupy and not brown.

Carole said...

Never heard of Dukes Mayo, so I googled it. As long as it is a mayo, you should be great!

Dburseth said...

I'm trying this tonight but I hate mayonnaise and that's what I amusing, will I taste mayonnaise ?

Dburseth said...

Ok, I just popped this into the oven and it smells so GOOD!! When I mixed all of the ingredients into the Light Mayo, I didnt smell the mayo anymore which is a huge plus for me seeing as i hate mayo lol I am hoping I wont taste mayo because this looks so good cooking and I cant wait until 5pm to try it!! :) Thanks Carole!

Does anyone serve with a side dish? Maybe pasta? Or has anyone tried putting veggies in it too?

Donna Chilson said...

I am making this as a dinner to take to a family. I am planning to take a salad and would like a recommendation for a side dish. Thanks!!!!

Carole said...

Any fresh sautéed vegetable would be great or a loaf of crusty bread. It really doesn't make a sauce so if you make rice or pasta, you would need something else to top them with.

Beth said...

Made this and loved it! Made it a second time for a bunch of firefighters and changed it a little bit. Added some other spices, used monterey jack cheese, covered with french fried onions, and then a layer of cheese. The guys loved it- although my figure didn't ;) This is a staple in my kitchen now!

Anonymous said...

I've been making this for years except that I use fish such as flounder or cod.

Jen reeder said...

I liked it a lot, but thought that it was a little salty- anyone else have this problem? Ever tried it with less seasoned salt? I used Lawry's.
Thanks!

Lesa Pollock said...

I just made this and we loved it. I didn't use any mayo I just used greek yogurt. We really liked it. Next time I will use half mayo and see if there is a difference. Thanks for sharing such an easy wonderful recipe!!

rdnance3 said...

Ok...so I made these too yesterday! It was a tough day for my hubby...thought I show him some love and support with a warm, home cooked meal. Needless to say....these were a major hit. My daughter told me to definitely keep this recipe and please make it again!!

Used 1/2 mayo and 1/2 greek yogurt. And they were great. Am now wondering what if I used just greek yogurt and made these not only delicious, but healthy too.

Anyone tried it?

thank you for a great meal!

Anonymous said...

Has any one tried this w pork chops? Hubs cant eat chicken

Mrs. Becker said...

I made this tonight, and was not thrilled with how it turned out. I did not have plain mayo, just Miracle Whip. Other than that, I followed the recipe to a tee. They did not brown up well, there was a "soupy" mess in the bottom of the dish, and the Miracle Whip flavor was very dominant. I'm not sure if I will try this one again. :(

Anonymous said...

Had this tonight for aupper. SO good! I might add less seasoned salt next time (but that's just personal preference). Thank you so much for sharing! Definitely adding this to my list!

Carole said...

Mrs Becker- sorry to hear it didn't go well for you but I think the use of Miracle Whip is what caused your trouble. If you feel brave enough, try it again with mayo. It will result in a nice thick topping and be sure it is baked uncovered as well.

Carole said...

I have never tried it with pork but I bet it would be great with a nice, thick cut chop. I bet a thick piece of fish would be delicious as well.

MLGraham09 said...

My mom made this while we were there visiting, it was wonderful! Had to find it and pin it!

Anonymous said...

How do you think it would work with sour cream instead of mayo? I don't really like cooking with mayo because of the high calories. I like light or low fat sour cream but not light mayo. I know greek yogurt is the consistency of sour cream....just wondering if you have ever tried this or thought it would work the same.

Carole said...

I think it is worth a try for sure. Let me know how it goes!

kim said...

I made this the other night and put panko on top and WOW. amazing!! thanks!

I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious! Mine also got a little soupy like some of the comments said (despite in being cooked uncovered) but it didn't matter because it tasted so wonderful! I did half Greek yogurt and half light mayonnaise and used one clove of fresh minced garlic rather than the garlic powder. I also added a teaspoon or so of fresh rosemary. I'll definitely be making this again! Can't wait for the leftovers for tomorrow nights dinner!

Stephanie Pariseau said...

Lots of great comments from the family about this one. I have used the mayo, garlic, and cheese mixture on french bread and white fish before, but the chicken was great too.

Sarah said...

I'm definitely going to try this tonight, but I need to ask if it is such a good idea to heat mayo??

Anonymous said...

Found this on Pintrest last night and made it tonight - it was great! I used all Greek yogurt, which I hadn't had before but smells like sour cream so I bet that would work too. Didn't read the comments before so covered it for 2/3 of the time. Was kind of soupy but soooo juicy! Definitely a keeper. I'm from WI and living in VA (and am headed to New Ulm in a few weeks :-) so can ID with the long distance family ties. Will be back to your fab blog, thanks so much!
Cheers,
Corinne

Amanda said...

I'm curious as to what side you served with this. Is there enough sauce to make noodles (bowties or penne) or rice or did you just make veggies?

Carole said...

Amanda: my result was not enough for pasta or rice. Others have commented that theirs was saucy but mine wasn't. I served crusty bread and sautéed veggies.

Thanks for this great recipe, we loved it. I found the seasoning salt to be a bit much, so reduced it down the following time I made it. However I have no complaints. I LOVE this recipe. I used fat free mayo, worked like a charm, and doubled the parm cheese on the top;)

Thanks for the recipe! I use half mayo and half greek yogurt and have made both chicken and white fish. It is DELISH! My hubby said that it is the best chicken I have made in years!!! Again, thanks for sharing!

Jenn said...

Can I do this with chicken tenders? How do I adjust the cooking time and temp? Sounds yummy!

Carole said...

Jenn: sure! I would probably not use as much of the sauce, keep the same temperature and reduce the cooking time about 15 minutes but you will have to check it to see when it is finished cooking.

The spelling thing is hysterical to me! I had to look really hard to figure it out! Lol. I'd rather spend my time admiring how delicious it looked! I'll be trying it for this weeks menu.
I'm glad you were able to visit family. Mine all lives in my same town except for one brother, he's only 3 hours away and comes home often. Our mother has been gone for 12 years now and having all of us close has been a huge blessing. With my dad alone now, I'm reminded everyday how blessed I am to have my family close. Thanks for the recipes and also the reminders to be grateful for what we have:)

I agree. Some people are just nuts! The "turns me off this recipe" proves it. I live far from home, too. I'm from Virginia and we are a Armt family stationed in northern Italy. I'll be having "real" Parmesan cheese tonight, fresh from Parma...

yeah, mine didn't come out nice like yours. I used greek yogurt and the sauce completely broke. the flavor was there... but it was watery/chunky. Baked uncovered and used boneless skinless. I'm going to try again... it wasn't enough to deter me. :)

I made this tonight and my family loved it. Even the daughter that doesn't like mayo LOL. She didn't know it was cooked in mayo, you couldn't tell. I used 1/2 mayo and 1/2 greek yogurt and it browned up real nice. Thanks for posting such an easy, delicious meal!!

Just finished feeding my family this and it was a huge hit. Was a little bit watery, any tips on how to keep this from happening in the future? I wa thinking maybe baking on top of a layer of stuffing.

have you tried making this with sour cream at all? dont have yogurt but have sour cream and mayo, think maybe the mayo may be a bit too rich, didnt know if cutting it with some light SC would still work?

Have never tried it with sour cream. I do use reduced fat mayo to keep it lighter. Let me know if you try it and how it goes.

Erin Corrill said...

Just made this and it was a total hit!! I added Italian bread crumbs to the extra Parmesan to sprinkle on top, made a nice crunch in top. It was a perfect dish. Thanks so much!

Laura Jones said...

I made this for lunch today. The top browned nicely, and the flavor was amazing. But underneath the beautiful brown part, was a nasty 2/4 INCH layer of watery soupy mess. I ended up taking the chicken out of the water with tongs, and serving it on a plate, but the texture was weird b/c of all of that liquid. I'm wondering if I did something wrong b/c it doesn't seem like others had this problem? I used all mayo, and followed the recipe exactly. In any case, I'll definitely make it again, but maybe put a rack in the pyrex so that it can drain and doesn't sit in the water?

Carole said...

I'm not sure why a few people have had a soupy result. My only thought is maybe the brand of mayo. I use Helmans.

Laura Jones said...

I used Kraft mayo. I was wondering if it was my chicken though. Some chicken has more water in it I think?

Elaine said...

I used half mayo and half peppercorn ranch dressing. I also buttered my pan and cooked it uncovered for 45 minutes. Since my chicken went in frozen I covered it and baked it for another 25 minutes. It was a bit soupy but I solved that problem by adding a little more parm, shredding the chicken, and then stirring the whole mixture in with some linguine noodles. It was delicious!

I think the longer you let the chicken sit to cool uncovered it makes the sauce thicken up a little more. But my method worked great for me, the flavor was incredible and my fiance loved it. Also very easy to make in a smaller portion for just 2. :)

Robin Bryant said...

If it came out watery did your perhaps use frozen chicken? Just a thought. Also if you are sensitive to the salt try leaving it out. parm cheese is by itself a bit on the salty side!

Melly Ann said...

Yes, the spelling is REALLY going to change the taste of the meal!!! Looks delicious! :)

Sally said...

After reading the comments I was unclear as to whether you use frozen chicken breast (thawed of course) or fresh raw chicken breast,like cutting up your own chicken. It would make a difference because the fresh would have to bake longer or perhaps be browned first. Which do you use?
Thanks, I am going to make this for a birthday dinner Sunday!

Carole said...

Sally - I just used regular old chicken breasts from the store. I'm sure they were frozen at one time, but were thawed when I made the recipe.

Can you PLEASE adjust the recipe to say "bake UNcovered"? This is a huge part of any recipe and chicken is not cheap. If you bake it covered you ruin it.

Holly Conway said...

I used my pampered chef deep covered baker and made this in the microwave in 15 minutes. The heavy lid doesn't let any moisture out so the chicken doesn't dry out. It taste exactly like it was done in the oven!

karissa said...

YUM!!! I just made this with half mayo, half miracle whip :) it was VERY good! Thank you for sharing this recipe :)

Amy said...

Sounds great. Going to try it tonight. And I know what you're going through. I only saw my grandparents twice a year on the same kind of long trip. It really is hard on you when you're a kid. I used to cry when we left. I would suggest getting your parents on Skype, if you haven't already. Your kids can then share everyday little things with them, which was the thing I missed out on and was sooo jealous of with my cousins who lived near by them. I do it now with my son, who have grandparents on the other side of the world! :)

Rebecca R. Farnsworth said...

Okay. On a whim, I decided to make this today. Problem: I didn't feel well yesterday, and thus did no grocery shopping. So, I used some substitutions, as I don't shop on Sundays for religious reasons. Some of them, because I had to, and others because I thought it'd taste better, given the other substitutions. Here is what I did: 1/2 c. mayo and 1/2 c. sour cream, mixed well; 1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese mixed with 1/4 c. grated Mexican cheese blend; 1.5 tsp. of fresh pesto instead of seasoning salt; 1/2 tsp white pepper; 1 tsp. garlic powder. It is in the oven now and smells delicious! I like how simple and quick it is to prepare. It barely dirties any dishes.

Rebecca R. Farnsworth said...

I just read through all the comments. Interesting what people get stuck on. At any rate, if you are cooking it uncovered and it is getting soupy, try reducing the salt (especially if you use sea salt). Salt will pull the moisture out of meat. So, reduce your salt while cooking to make it less soupy and more tender. Also, check your Parm. Some varieties have a higher amount of salt in them. So, if yours is high in salt, use 1/2 Parmesan and 1/2 Mozzarella or other low-sodium cheese of your liking. This should resolve both the salty and soupy issues.

Chasity said...

10/21/12-made this tonight-quick, easy and tasty - would be great over pasta; but I served over rice and with asparagus. Note: I used about 5 oz of Greek Yogurt with honey and made up the remainder of the cup with miracle whip light -> I thought using one cup worked out great, because I spooned the extra "sauce" that formed in the pan over the chicken (which was on the rice). Very tasty - thank you!

Anonymous said...

Super yummy! This recipe is now added into the regular family dinner category. Also, my 4 and 7 year old LOVE it!!! Thank you for posting this recipe!!!! I had to make some substitutions due to allergies. I can't use black pepper b/c I'm or seasoning salt, so I used just plain salt, some paprika, and onion powder in replace of it. Also, have to use the Greek Yogurt instead of mayo due to eggs. Only had 3/4 cup of greek yogurt tonight so I used sour cream for the 1/4 cup.

Will you correct the spelling please.

Everyone loved this dish!!! Super easy and tasted great. I doubled the sauce and would have had plenty to put on pasta, rice or veggies if you wanted to.

Anyone who got a soupy mess, don't use frozen chicken. That adds a lot of water and I bet it's why you got soupy results.

I can't wait to try this dish! Thank you so much for posting! I'm 14 years-old, and LOVE to cook. I'm going to try to double the recipe, because I have so many people to cook for. :)

Just came across the picture of the Chicken recipe on Pinterest. YUM, I need to try it. Looks fantastic. I am typing while I wait to go to church and then having a family dinner, Mexican Style tonight.

I am the worst speller in the entire world. I blame my problem on Catholic Elementary Schools in the 50's. I was too social. I am fairly smart and educated though.

Please if anyone reads blogs and has problems with spelling, get a grip on your own OCD life and get out of that tunnel world you live in.

Thanks for posting the recipe, I will use Greek Yogart and Miracle Whip (light). I have lost 40 plus lbs and don't want to take any chances.

Night all from KC, MO.

I made this the other night and felt there was too much salt being used. Scrapped off everything and just ate the chicken, maybe next time it will work better with less salt for me.

Ya know...for people of normal intelligence, our minds automatically adjust mispelled words to the correct word. I didn't even notice the mistake until it was pointed out because my normal brain did not care that it was mispelled...my brain is smart enough to correct it.

Thank you for this awesome post. I will be trying this recipe.

I just made this tonight. I used a little bit more of equal parts yogurt and light mayo. It came out fabulous. almost two pounds of chicken devoured! Thanks for posting this.

Carrie Kester said...

Made this for the first time tonight and it was DELICIOUS! My entire family raved about it so much that I sent the link to 6 friends after dinner!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

PH said...

I made similar to this but I put broccoli under the chicken breast. One pot meal.

I made this tonight and loved it! Thanks for posting-I made it with Greek Yogurt and it was great. Thanks for cooking way better than me. :)

Bridget said...

To say this is good would be an understatement. I DON'T cook but I tried this last night. My husband would not stop talking about how good it was. He wants me to make it every other day (while we have the leftovers in between):) Thank you for sharing.

Would sour cream be okay to use instead of yogurt or mayonnaise?

Carole said...

You could try it. It may separate more than the mayo does, much like the yogurt does. It will also give you a different flavor than the mayo. Let me know how it turns out.

Robyn said...

Oh my gosh, I'm dying in laughter over the spelling nonsense. SERIOUSLY!? We are trying it tonight and I was excited to find that you suggest using the fresh parmesan. I'm having to alter the chicken a little bc I'm lazy and have chunked chicken already thawed. I can't wait to try this!!! Thank you for sharing this deliciousness and I don't care how you spell it, I think paremsan sounds just fine to me! LOL!!! I'm looking forward to reading through the rest of your blog!

Denise said...

I've tried this recipe two weeks ago. And my husband liked it so much, he took a second helping. I would say it so good and tasty that 9/10 is not overrating it. Thanks for this recipe which will now be a favorite in my household.

From Montreal, Quebec.

TLK said...

Help! I'm making this for the first time tomorrow night to take to a dinner party. I need suggestions for how long to heat it back up for and what temperature? Thanks in advance!!

Carole said...

Just reheat it in the microwave, or on a low heat in the oven like at 250.

This was simple and delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

I just made this for the fam - except I had to use gorgonzola cheese (I mistook it for parmesan) - it was still fabulous (and easy!!) Can't wait to try it with Parmesan next time. :)

Lynn said...

I have this in my oven now and it looks nothing like your picture. Plus it's got a lot of oil/grease in it from the mayo?

Alia S said...

Great recipe, the chicken turns out really moist and flavorful. I am going to try this with the yogurt next time in place of the mayo though after it is cooked it looks really oily (I am guess due to both the parmesan and the mayo.) I imagine the yogurt will still have a touch of that, but not as much as with the mayo. Went perfect with a cesar salad and wild rice.

Jennifer said...

This sounds really good. I think I might do a spin on this using shredded chicken instead. Have you ever done that before?

Julie Jones said...

Made this for dinner tonight with the 0% Fage Greek yogurt and added red pepper for more spice. It is delicious and not too tangy. Thank you!!

My sister introduced us to this dish about 20 years ago...with variations...we use Miracle Whip, regular jarred parm cheese, and oregano. No seasoned salt. We always make double the sauce and use it for baked potatoes instead of butter. Amazing!! Had it last night and my husband and I were both like this is the greatest meal we can cook on our own!

Who cares about a misspelled word?!

People can be SO MEAN!

Thank you girl for posting this recipe and serving your family.

*to the commenter who said the misspelled word turned her off to the recipe, if you don't have something nice to say, please don't say anything at all.

Oh, and i'm trying this recipe tonight, thanks!

Just made the recipe- delicious! I used half mayo half plain Oikos greek yogurt. Very good flavor...would probably do a little less seasoned salt next time if I had to change anything. I also used chicken tenderloins- they were super moist and tender (I'm not a fan of chicken breasts). Would definitely make again!

The Undomestic Newlywed said...

Tried this recipe tonight. I usually have terrible luck with Pinterest recipes but this one was a success!! So easy!!! Only used 2 chicken large chicken breasts for the hubs and me, and baked for 35 minutes. I wanted the cheese to brown a bit more, so I turned on the broiler real quick.
Thanks for a keeper!! :)

Anonymous said...

Made it, family LOVED it. FYI for those who end up with it watery... Try laying tge breasts out on paper towls to soak up extra water, especially if they were previously frozen... Most grocers and packagers add water to the meat and that will come out as it cooks, causing the sauce/topping to be watery or break down like mentioned above... I had this happen the first time I made it and almost.didn't try again... Good Luck :)

i grew up seeing my grandparents and extended family only 2 weeks a year. i have such great memories of those 2 weeks in Britt,IA!!!! i am sure your kids will too!

My computer was out, so I made this from memory last night. The yogurt wasn't creamy enough, so as I was drinking some wine, I mixed some of that in. I didn't blend the cheese into the mixture, and as it turns out, that was fine. My husband doesn't like much cheese, so I topped his with seasoned bread crumbs, I used cheese on mine. The result was really nice! The chicken was tender, not dried out, but it wasn't saucy. I didn't want that anyway, so I was pleased. Oh I did use fresh garlic, not powder, but I think the garlic powder would have been better. Served with peas and a baked potato (which I threw in the oven along with the chicken). I also made one separate for my daughter to have before work. This would be a great recipe for one, as well. I couldn't care less how you spell it! Thanks!

Made it tonight, very easy and tasty. I only used 1 tsp of salt and still tooooo salty for me. Will cut down on the salt more next time for sure.

This is the recipe off the side of the Hellman's Mayo jar (with some added seasoning)

Great recipe! I just saw you are in Marshall MN. My family "summers" on Lake Shetek. My moms family is from Walnut Grove and has since moved all over the country, but we maintain a lake house.Its my most favorite place in the world. Thanks for the great blog!

Jessica Mckinney said...

Wow......this is amazing! Second time making it and was even better. I used half the amount of salt(sea salt) and it was sooooo good! Andyour right, left overs were even better....lol

Sue said...

Tanya said...

Hi this sounds amazing! Just a quick question; could you use the regular powdery Parmesan or would that ruin the recipe? Thank you
