Mozzarella Crusted Chicken Bake

Friday, October 26, 2012

Hello all! Thanks for stopping by today! This week was a really busy week for me (hint hint: we are starting on the bathroom soon!), so I really didn't have time to post as much as I wanted. However, last night I made these and they were so yummy! Serve with a salad or potatoes and you are set! Enjoy and see you all next week!

Mozzarella Crusted Chicken Bake
Prep time: 20 min        Cook Time: 35-45 min           Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients
- 1 lb. chicken breast, cut into strips
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup cheese of your choice (mozzarella, parmesean)
- 1/3 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Grease baking sheet.
2. In a wide bowl, combine mayonnaise and cheese. In a separate wide bowl, add dry bread crumbs.
3. Dip chicken strips in the mayonnaise mixture, coating both sides evenly. Transfer to the bread crumbs bowl and coat each strip evenly on both sides.
4. Place chicken strips in the baking sheet. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until chicken is cooked and crust is golden yellow.

Tip:
To make the breading stick to the chicken, roll the chicken into the flour to coat before rolling in your wet mixture. This will allow the wet mixture to stick to something so it doesn't fall off during baking or frying!

Variations:
Use 1/3 cup ranch or Caesar dressing.
Alternatively, dip strips in a whisked egg mixture of your favourite spices (salt, pepper, chilli powder, seasoned salt, etc.)
Use flour instead of bread crumbs.
For more crunch, mix bread crumbs with crushed corn flakes or rice crispies cereal.

Made this tonight added a bit of ranch to my mayo as well as garlic powder, red pepper flakes Italian seasoning and black pepper ... dredged in flour then in the mayo sauce then on the pan sprinkle the bread crumbs over it thickly and baked for 50min soooooo Good! I will repeat this! Oh and I chose to go with shredded mozzarella since I didn't have Parmesan worked out perfect!!
