Baked Creamy Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Baked parmesan chicken is a family favorite dinner that cooks up in a sheet pan with only a few ingredients. Chicken breasts are sprinkled with seasoned salt and pepper, and then covered in a creamy mixture with garlic and parmesan cheese. 
I seriously cannot believe that I have never shared this recipe for baked parmesan chicken before. I make a lot of food and this baked chicken is by far the one thing I make the most. Oh, and this creamy beef noodle bake is a very close second.
My 8 year old son is very much into wanting to grow “strong and tall”. He asks me all the time what he can eat to grow strong and tall. I think that’s the reason he likes chicken so much because I tell him it has lots of protein and will help him grow strong 🙂 Because my son is obsessed with chicken lately, I am always looking for new ways to cook chicken and I have yet to find any recipe that is better than this one. Which is probably why I make this baked parmesan chicken at least twice a month.

Baked parmesan chicken is a family favorite dinner that uses simple ingredeints and is so good! Chicken breasts are seasoned to perfection and then topped with a creamy garlic mixture. Tender chicken and a creamy topping that you will love. 

Ingredients
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 container (5.3 oz) plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet (12"x18") with cooking spray. If you are making a smaller half batch, then you will just need a 9x13 baking dish. Whatever you use, you don't want the chicken overlapping at all. 
  2. Slice each chicken breast in half lengthwise to form 2 thinner pieces from each one. You will end up with 8 thin pieces of chicken breasts. Arrange them on the cookie sheet. 
  3. ** If your chicken breasts are smaller to begin with, you may not have to slice them to form thinner pieces. You may just want to use 6 chicken breasts if they are smaller to begin with. Cutting them in half lengthwise works best for larger pieces of chicken **
  4. In a small bowl, stir together the seasoned salt and black pepper. Sprinkle it over the chicken pieces. In a separate bowl, combine the mayo, yogurt, parmesan cheese and garlic powder. Evenly divide the mixture among the chicken pieces. Spread it out over the entire piece of chicken so that it stays moist. 
  5. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until internal temperature reads 165 degrees. The cook time will vary depending on the thickness or thinness of the chicken breasts. 
  6. Sprinkle with additional parmesan cheese and/or chopped parsley if wanted. Leftover keep well in the fridge and can be reheated. 
Recipe Notes
You don't have to slice the chicken breasts to make the thinner pieces. I just prefer it and think it works the best. If you just use the 4 large chicken pieces, you may have to increase the cook time to 40 minutes to make sure it's cooked through.
