Parmesan Crusted Chicken
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and the parmesan cheese.
Use a pastry brush to spread the mixture onto each piece of chicken, then sprinkle and pat on the bread crumbs.
Bake for 20 minutes or until there is no pink showing in the chicken breasts and the coating nice and crispy
Italian Season Breadcrumbs
If you plan to make you own breadcrumbs you need to do ahead of when you want to make the chicken.
Place 8 slices of bread on a half sheet cookie sheet, if you house is dry allow the bread to dry out. If your house is humid you need these quickly place the bread into a 200 degree oven until the bread has dried out, and then flip the bread over and allow the bread to dry out on the other side. This should take 5 to 7 minutes on each side.
Crumble bread into a bowl and add salt. Rub the Italian Seasonings between your hands to release the aromatic oils and then place those into the bowl. Add onion powder, and garlic powder if desired. Stir to combine. Store in an air tight container.
