I, however, loved it. There haven't been very many things we've tried that we've been split on. We both usually love it or don't, unless it's something that we knew Mark wouldn't like because he has the palate of a 7 year old.
Me: The chicken I made for dinner tonight is bahhhhhhhmmmm!
Him: what's in it?
Me: I don't wanna tell you.
Him: (takes two bites and gives me the thumbs down on his way to scrape the rest into the garbage.)
I reheated it the next day for lunch and loved it as much the second time. My theories are that Mark is stupid, or that Mark doesn't like mayo and that's why he hated it.
Most likely? It's a combination of both.
So anyway, I'm going to post the recipe even though nobody cares what I'm cooking because quite honestly I am an idiot in and out of the kitchen. Someone left a comment on my first recipe that said, "what is going on?!"
Haha! What is going on, indeed. I imagine my blogging hubris has taken a turn toward out of control? And I just think that I can take a dump all over my blog and you will love it anyway?*
Whatever. Here is the recipe. I'm on track with my two recipe a month goal because I made this on 1/31 proving that I thoroughly rule at life. (Life hubris?)
Mayo & Parmesan Crusted Chicken
|As always, my food looks disgusting compared to the source.|
Whatever, it was good.
Click "source" above to see a delicious looking pic.
Heat oven to 425 degrees.
1/2 Cup Real Mayonnaise**
1/4 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
4 tsp. Italian Seasoned Dry Bread crumbs (I used Panko crumbs and oregano, because I had them. And I used a lot more than 4 tsp!!)
Mix mayo and parmesan cheese in a small bowl.
Place thawed chicken breasts on a baking sheet. Spread mayo/cheese mix evenly on top of each breast.
Spread bread crumbs on top of each breast.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until tops are brown and juices run clear.
I served with green beans because that's what it was pictured with and I am unoriginal, and I made mashed potatoes, too.
*You know, part of the reason that I rarely blog is that I worry that people won't enjoy what I post. I mean, it only takes a couple of people telling you how funny your blog used to be and how they still stick with you anyway to instill that kind of paranoia. BUT, I am going to try to let go of that and post whatever I want and you can read it and enjoy it or read it and not enjoy it, right?
**can we talk about mayo for a minute? I grew up eating miracle whip** and thinking it was just another brand of mayo and meh. It was fine. I rarely ate it. And then as a grown up, I learned the true joys of real mayonnaise. I can't decide if my childhood was ruined because I never learned the true joys of real mayonnaise until my mid-20's (damn you mom!) or if my childhood was better off because I never learned the true joys of real mayonnaise (damn you childhood obesity!).
