Ingredients

  • 4

    (6 oz) boneless skinless chicken breast halves

  • 1/4

    cup mayonnaise

  • 1/4

    cup buttermilk

  • 1 1/2

    tsp dried basil

  • 1/4

    cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, divided

  • 1/4

    tsp garlic powder, divided

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 1/2

    cup Panko bread crumbs

  • 1/4

    cup dry white bread crumbs

  • 1/8

    tsp onion powder

  • Olive oil cooking spray

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a 13x9 baking dish. In a shallow bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, buttermilk, dried basil, 2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese, 1/8 tsp garlic powder and season with salt and pepper to taste, set aside. In a separate shallow bowl, whisk together Panko bread crumbs, dry white bread crumbs, remaining 2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese, onion powder, 1/8 tsp garlic powder then season bread crumb mixture with salt and pepper to taste. Dip chicken in basil (pesto) dressing mixture and coat both sides, then dip in bread crumb mixture and coat both sides (I'd recommend giving a generous dipping in each). Align coated chicken breast halves in a single layer on baking dish. Spray tops of chicken breast halves evenly with olive oil cooking spray. Bake chicken in preheated oven 30-35 minutes until cooked through (I wanted mine nice and golden so I moved the oven rack up a bit during the last minute of baking and broiled them. If you do this don't walk away from them, watch them constantly to prevent over browning). Serve warm. Recipe Source: Cooking Classy
