I found this recipe back when James and I were still dating and I would make him dinner at his apartment. Before he came around, I never really had to ever cook for myself. My mom always made dinner and when we had to fend for ourselves it was usually Top Ramen or leftovers heated up in the microwave.
I was very nervous to cook for James because I had no idea what I was doing. I was afraid I wouldn’t cook the chicken enough and give us both salmonella poisoning or put too much garlic in it. Ha! there is no such thing as too much garlic, what am I saying?
He once called a pizza I made”an abomination” because I put the cheese on before the sauce on accident, so…no pressure…
Luckily, when I made this recipe for the first time the chicken was not undercooked and it had just the right amount of garlic. This is now James’s favorite thing that I make. I must say I’m quite fond of it myself.
Here’s what you need:
2) Preheat oven to 375
3) While the chicken is defrosting get your preparation station ready. If you discover a way that works for you, go for it! This is what I have discovered is the most efficient way for me:
5) Place a greased cookie sheet next to the parmesan plate for easy transferring and lets get to slathering those puppies in mayo!
7) Firmly press the parmesan on all sides of the chicken and make sure its covering the whole thing.
9) Once finished, slide the cookie sheet into the oven and bake for 30 min
While the chicken is baking, let’s get started on the green beans!
1) Place a handful or two of green beans in a large bowl
2) Sprinkle pepper and garlic salt all over
3) Coat with a good layer of Olive Oil and mix all together
4) Pour green beans onto a small cookie sheet.
5) Sprinkle the shredded parmesan all over the green beans
6) When the chicken timer is at 15 minutes, slide the green beans in with it so they get done at the same time. If both cookie sheets don’t fit, as soon as the chicken is done, put the green beans in for 12-15 min. Then serve!
