For the past few weeks, Hellmann’s has been helping parents with common dinner dilemmas, from meeting budgets to preparing meals in minutes to serving picky eaters. We’ve already shared our previous challenges of cooking for picky eaters and preparing a time saving meal. This week we’re cooking up a twist on a classic recipe as part of our Hellmann’s® “Chicken Change-Up” Challenge. We all have our favorite dishes, but sometimes you may crave a bit of variety – something that’s familiar but also a little bit different. To meet this challenge, we decided to cooke up the Caesar-Crusted Chicken.
For this meal, we followed Hellmann’s recipe for Caesar-Crusted Chicken. All of Hellmann’s Chicken Change-up recipes have been easy to follow and prepare, and the Caesar-Crusted Chicken was no different. It took just a few minutes of prep time to get the chicken in the oven.
The first step is to mix together the mayonnaise mixture which will be used to coat the chicken. The recipe calls for Mayonnaise, cheese, mustard, lemon juice and garlic. I skipped the mustard but used everything else.
Next, you coat the chicken with the mixture.
Then sprinkle with crouton crumbs. You can crush the croutons however you wish, however I find that putting the croutons in a plastic baggie and then rolling with a rolling pin works pretty well. (Although sometimes small holes do form in the bag from the sharp crouton edges, so be careful when lifting.) That’s it! Just two steps and then put the chicken in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
This chicken was DELICIOUS! It was incredibly flavorful. It had a great crunchy crust with moist, juicy chicken underneath that crunch. Everyone who tried this chicken loved it, and it’s a new regular dish on our meal rotation. It is so easy to prepare and has a tasty outcome. Some other twist on a classic recipes are:
