Parmesan Crusted Chicken

Easy Dinner Recipe - Chicken  www.sweetlittleonesblog.com


When I first found this chicken recipe on Pinterest, and I thought it looked too good to be true.  Fifteen minute prep and 4 ingredients?  And it's good?  I had to try it, and it really was that easy and that good!  Everyone - including my picky 3 year old - loves it.  This is now a go-to recipe for our family!

Ingredients:

3 chicken breasts
1 cup Mayo
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup crushed Triscuits

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425°.  Spray a 9x13 with cooking spray.

Butterfly chicken breasts so they are thinner.  Lay chicken breasts in baking dish.

Put mayo and cheese in a bowl and mix.  Spread mixture evenly over chicken.

Sprinkle crushed Triscuits evenly on top.

Bake for 20-30 minutes, until chicken is thoroughly cooked and crust has been browned to your desire.

Notes:

In this recipe, I doubled the mayo/cheese mixture from the original recipe because we like more "sauce".

I like to sprinkle a little Italian seasoning and fresh cracked pepper over the top of the crushed Triscuits.

Breadcrumbs can be substituted for crushed Triscuits.  I use Triscuits because I love a crunchy crust!

This chicken is wonderful when served alongside - or in! - a salad.

I made this easy chicken dinner for my family last night...mmmmmm, it was so delicious!  I sure am looking forward to leftovers tonight!  Hope your family enjoys this meal as much as ours.

DIY Sidewalk Paint

This week is my first week completely home alone with the kids, and so far it is going good! It's been pretty hot outside, but Abby loves being in her 'swimmy suit', so we are just going out in the morning during Tim's nap. Today we had fun being artistic! It is probably one of my favorite Pinterest finds from last year - DIY sidewalk paint. It is super easy to make, cleaned off easily with water, and entertained Abby (and John ;)) for a long time.

Here's the recipe:
2 T corn starch
4 T water
Food coloring (however many drops you want)


I made a couple of batches, and put different colors into a muffin pan. The foam brushes worked really well, and she went to town coloring our back patio. We also did this last year when she was about 15 months old. I love this recipe because if it goes in their mouth, you don't have to worry! :)

Last summer's painting extravaganza! :)



Enjoy the sunshine! Happy Tuesday!
