Steps To Make Melt-In-Your-Mouth Chicken
Step 1: Baking chicken breasts is tricky. Brine or marinating them is an absolute must! Start by slicing the chicken breasts into three large strips or chunks.
Step 2: In a bowl with milk and buttermilk mixture, toss the breast strips/chunks and marinate for at least 20 – 30 minutes, preferably overnight.
Step 3: Mix the mayo, half a cup of Parmesan cheese, and seasonings.
Seasoning salt & black pepper:
Step 4: Into a baking dish, lay the chicken strips/chunks. On top, evenly spread the mayo mixture and sprinkle with the rest of the Parmesan cheese.
Step 5: Bake at 375 degrees F for 40 – 45 minutes. To get the top of the chicken extra brown, finish in the broiler for 1 – 2 minutes.
Frequently Asked Questions
What to serve Melt In Your Mouth Chicken
I like serving these Melt In Your Mouth Chicken with veggies such as steamed fresh broccoli. I love to garnish them also with some fresh parsley for extra flavor.
How long should I bake the chicken?
It all depends on the thickness of the chicken breasts. Although, a thin chicken will cook faster. Once the juices run clear and the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees F the chicken is done. Using a meat thermometer is ideal to make sure the chicken is cooked way through without over or under-cooking.
