I have to admit that this parmesan crusted chicken from the Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise website (I found it linked from The Enchanted Cook), was a bit of a disappointment. The blog boasted that it was going to be moist and creamy and everything fantastic. But it fell severely flat. My husband still ate a full portion, saying, “It’s just regular chicken.”
The top “crust,” was alright – baked-on mayo and parmesan cheese with a bread crumb dusting. Maybe the recipe needs more parmesan cheese? Maybe I added too many bread crumbs? I don’t know. But it just did not do it for me.
I don’t want to sound mean, though. Clearly a lot of people really enjoy it, if it is featured on a brand-name website, as well as other food blogger’s websites, so if you make this and find it delightful, please let me know what I did differently!!
