Quick, easy, cheesy! Oh dear. Did I really just say that? Yep. I did. Well, this cheesy chicken traybake is sure to hit the mark. This was a hit with both mini kidgredients (surprising as it is not plain chicken schnitzel or a marinated saucy chicken).
Serve this one with some zucchini chippies and some steamed veggies and you’ve got an incredibly easy dinner. Chicken breast can easily dry out in the oven but the cheese and the mayonnaise ensure this won’t happen, your chicken will be moist yet crunchy.
It’s so yummy that you’ll find yourself grabbing the crumbly, cheesy bits from the corners after everyone has been served! Even Miss 5 has asked to help “clean the dish”.
Well, this chicken dish is so delicious you’ll forget how easy it was. And if you’re quick you’ll be able to steal some of the crunchy bits as you dish it up. Double or triple this one if you’ve got a lot of people to feed, but make sure the strips are in a single layer in the dish or they will end up soggy. And no-one likes soggy crumbs!
