Moist, baked chicken....just for you.

I was trolling around Pinterest, as I'm prone to do, and I came upon a recipe for chicken baked in sour cream and Parmesan cheese.  It reminded me of a recipe I've made for years.  It's my cousin Sherry Lee's recipe from an old volume of Haught's Chapel cookbook.  And it's fantastic.
  As a side note, most people from my Mom's side of the family have two first names.  Sherry Lee, Edwina Jean, Charli Jo.  I don't know why.  It's just the way it is. 

Here's what you'll need:

Parmesan cheese
Bread crumbs
Chicken pieces (I used boneless, skinless breasts)

There are no real measurements to this recipe.  Well, there were at one time, but I can't find the recipe so you'll have to deal with it.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Put a couple of big spoonfuls of Mayo into a large bowl.

In another bowl, add 3 parts breadcrumbs to one part Parmesan cheese.
* I also added a dash of onion powder and garlic powder, just because. 

Take you chicken and smear it with a thin coat of mayo. 
Dip it into the breadcrumb mixture.
Lay into a 9x13 baking dish sprayed with Pam.

Your hands will be a gooey disaster.  It's OK, it will be worth it.

Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes. 

While your at it, scrub up some potatoes and throw those in there as well.  Why waste a hot oven, right? 

By the way, am I the only one who sometimes starts humming "Hungry Eyes" from Dirty Dancing when I'm scrubbing potatoes?  I'm pretty sure I'm not.

I'm serving this with fried cabbage, because cabbage was crazy cheap this week.  Or you could serve it with green beans & caramelized onions.   It's also great with a baked potato and a fresh salad. 

Best thing about this meal - it can be prepped in less then 15 minutes.  Then just wait for the oven to finish the job.

Sounds great! And I LOVE baked sweet potatoes. I made my bbq beef and beans and put it over baked sweet potatoes the other night... my kids were gagging (at the thought of it...you know--Egads! Not put loads of butter, brown sugar and cinnamon on thy baked sweet?) But I thought it was fabulous!

I use potatoes instead of noodles to serve food over all the time. I can grow potatoes, I can't grow noodles! I think it would have been great.

I melted butter to my chicken. Then I use parmesan and marjoram (the herb) to coat the chicken. Any herb works. I guess the bread crumbs might save me money. The chicken comes out so moist and it is a little crispy when used for left overs. One of my favorite ways to make chicken. I might try this.

It's a good recipe, but I have to say - butter, parmesan and marjoram sounds great. We'll be trying that.
