  • 2 lbs chicken breast boneless (See notes for preparation)
  • 2 Tbsps fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 Tbsps butter softened
  • 3 Tbsps mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbsps chopped green onion
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Freshly grated black pepper to taste
  • Dash of Tabasco Sauce


  • Additional sliced green onions


  • 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:
  1. Cut the breasts horizontally into two pieces (a bit harder but my preference)
  2. 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!
