Parmesan Chicken Breasts

We had this for dinner with last nights leftover macaroni and cheese. Yummy stuff.

The Soup Diva

  • 1-1.5 lb boneless chicken fillets (can also use strips)
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Dijon or brown mustard
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp white or black pepper
  • Seasoned bread crumbs (about 2 tbsp)
Mix mayonnaise, mustard, cheese, garlic powder, and pepper; coat chicken on all sides with mixture. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and lay on baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake 425 degrees 20 minutes or until golden on top. (Do NOT turn over, or coating will fall off; ask me how I know!)

Working 9 to 5 – A Lesson From Dolly Parton

We went to see a Chattanooga Theatre Centre presentation of Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5” and it occurred to me that the queen of East Tennessee music is quite the feminist. This play and movie is about empowering women to be who they want to be on their terms. I think in the 21st century women should have the freedom to answer life’s call on their lives in whatever form it takes whether it be mother or minister, president of our country or CEO of a corporation. Women are a powerful force for good and they get stuff done. So their work from 8 to 6 or 9 to 5 is more valuable now than ever. As a man I support their wanting their own dreams to come true.
