For when you’ve only got 5 minutes prep time, but you still need a delicious chicken dinner! Here is your winner!


  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ¼ cup spring onions, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ cup fresh dill (or 2 teaspoons dried)
  • Lemon, sliced
  • ¼ cup cream (optional)



  1. Preheat oven to 180°C
  2. Flatten the chicken slightly using a mallet. (If you don’t have a mallet, it just means the chicken breast will be a little thicker and taking slightly longer to cook)
  3. Mix the parmesan, butter, mayonnaise, lemon juice, spring onions, salt and pepper together, until well combined.
  4. Coat the chicken breasts with the mixture, place a slice of lemon on each piece and sprinkle fresh Dill over.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes and then grill for 5 minutes until the tops are golden brown. Take out of the oven, drizzle with the cream and serve with sides of your choice.
