This has been waiting for upload since the beginning of January, but I have been feeling like crap for a while and not wanting to do anything. The juicy flavorful baked chicken in this post, is so good you'll want to make it every week. This makes 4 servings
I was at a church Christmas dinner, where they served this awesome chicken, that was super juicy, tasty, and oh so good. I knew I wanted to have it again, it was that good, but I unfortunately didn't get the recipe. As you may well know, you don't always need a recipe to create in the kitchen, so I decided to recreate, my own version of the dish. You can thank me later =]
Step 1: Gather the Necessities
For this dish you will only need a few things, but together they will turn ordinary chicken into extraordinary.
Get yourself some:
Italian Breadcrumbs 1/3-1/2 cup
Parmesan Cheese 1/3 cup
Bacon 3-4 pieces
Best Foods- Creamy Balsamic Mayonnaise/Dressing 2/3 cup
And of course some boneless skinless Chicken Brest
You will also need some kitchen tools, like a baking sheet, mat or foil, a rubber spatula, and a small mixing bowl.
Step 2: Let's Get Started
Time to get cooking, go cook and crisp up your bacon, while that's cooking mix up the cheese and mayonnaise, then crumble and fold the bacon in.
Step 3: Next
Preheat your oven to 375° and get out some foil or a baking mat to line your sheet, we want to make sure we get the flavors going throughout the whole breast, so spread a little of the mixture on the pan before placing your chicken. Start covering each piece with the rest of the mayonnaise mixture, making sure to get the sides.
Step 4: Cover With Crumbs and Bake
Completely cover the chicken with a layer of bread crumbs, again making sure to get the sides.
*This part tends to get a little messy, but that's ok right. ;]
Now bake the chicken for about 12-15 minutes or until done, you really need to keep an eye on this because it can over cook real fast on you. Depending on where you live and your oven type, you may need to adjust cooking temperature/time.
Step 5: Dig In!
Once the chickens done, you should let it rest a few minutes to set the flavors and juices. Then just dig in, to the deliciousness of this fine dish.
