Chicken fillets are broiled and then covered with a mixture of Parmesan cheese, mayonnaise, and butter before finishing under the broiler. Fast and fantastic; it's a family favorite!

Place fillets in a buttered baking dish in a single layer. Brush both sides with lemon juice and let stand for 10 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise, green onion, salt, pepper, and Tasbasco sauce.
Broil the fillets 3/4 inches under a pre-heated broiler for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven, flip fillets over and spread the top with the cheese mixture. Broil for an additional 2-4 minutes until just turning brown. WATCH CAREFULLY!
A food thermometer should read 165 degrees internal temperature to insure done-ness.
Serve over rice if desired and garnish with sliced green onions.
Chicken breasts will require that you make them thinner for this preparation. You have two options:
Cut the breasts horizontally into two pieces (a bit harder but my preference)
Cut the breast in half and pound each peace to a thickness relative to a piece of fish; approximately 1/2" thick. Do not pound too thin!
