Parmesan Crusted Chicken

This is a quick and easy chicken recipe.
It's another one of my 'Chicken for Dummies'. 
When my grandson calls at the last minute and
 wants to know what he can do with a couple of
 chicken breasts and just a few other ingredients, 
I need to be ready!
Lay the chicken breasts in a shallow pan.
(Do not crowd the chicken like the above photo.)
 Give it some room and season as desired.
These were large breasts that I cut in half.
Combine the mayonnaise and grated parmesan
cheese in a small bowl.
 Spread on the mayo-parm mixture; then sprinkle
 a little breadcrumbs on top.

Now to make a complete dinner super easy 
you can roast some cut-up potatoes and fresh
vegetables along with the chicken. Just toss them
 in olive oil with a little seasonings. 
Dinner is in the oven!

 Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes; (or
(or at 375 for 25 minutes)
until cooked through and browned.
How easy is that?!
 You can adjust the recipe to make 1 or 12.
This works on fish too; just bake
for about 10 minutes @425.
 The chicken stays moist and juicy.
