Our flavorful and juicy Parmesan Chicken Bake starts with boneless, skinless chicken breasts that we coat with a light breading and Parmesan cheese. This no-fuss main dish is restaurant-worthy and fit for a diabetes diet, to boot!

What You'll Need

  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 4 (4-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, rinsed, patted dry
  • 1/4 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
     
  2. Lightly spread mayonnaise on both sides of each chicken breast. Combine breadcrumbs and cheese in shallow dish; coat chicken with crumb mixture and transfer to prepared baking sheet.
     
  3. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until chicken is tender and juices run clear.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This turned out GREAT! My company asked me for the recipe. I didn't have the heart to tell him it was for diabetics. We had this with a side of Green Beans Italiano and Homestyle Smashed Potatoes.

I make this recipe all the time and my family loves it so much. We use this at least once a month as one of our healthy meal choices. I think it goes well with a potato or a salad if you want to go low-carb. We also pair this with green beans and a parmesan pasta dish at times too. It is definitely a keeper!

L also would like the nutritional information but when I do the show more it doesn't show

Hi there! Can you let us know which browser you are using and if you're viewing our website on a mobile device or desktop computer? We'd love to help you out!

My fam loved this chicken parmesan. We paired it with steamed asparagus and small red potatoes.

Love chicken parm! This looks like a super easy recipe to whip together on a weeknight.

It would be nice if the nutritional values were on here. Being diabetic and having to count carbs, it's difficult sometimes at just guessing. Sounds like a good and different way to cook chicken.

Hello! We do include nutritional information for all of the recipes on our site. You can view it by clicking on "Show More" next to the "Nutritional Information" text below the recipe.

We have been using this recipe for our Children's meal at church for some time now. Instead of using mayo, we use ranch dressing. Not only the children love the taste, but the adults also, we also use Italian bread crumbs, more flavor.

Made this several times and it is very good. Quick and easy and a family favorite. A quick variation is put a slice of part-skim mozzarella and a few stalks of asparagus, roll it and bake the same. The chicken stays moist and the cheese melts around the asparagus.
