Two Guys in a Cucina

Parmesan-Romano Chicken

TGIAC Featured Recipe

This was one of the first recipes that I (Pedro) ever did when trying to cook something bigger than grilled cheese and the first recipe John & I ever cooked together. It’s success is what inspired me to explore the world of cooking. Another recipe that anyone can make… it leaves you with a super tender chicken and a delicious sauce for dipping. (the fresh baguette was my personal touch) I make this time and time again… you probably will too!

Parmesan-Romano Chicken


  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1 can tomato soup
  • 1 soup can water
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried sweet basil
  • ¼ cup parmesan-romano cheese (grated)
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese (shredded)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F.
  2. In blender, combine tomato soup, water, onion, and spices.
  3. Whiz for 10 sec on the blend setting.
  4. Arrange chicken in a single layer in a baking dish.
  5. Pour soup mixture over chicken.
  6. Sprinkle grated Parmesan-Romano Cheese over chicken.
  7. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
  8. Top with shredded mozzarella cheese.
  9. Return to oven and bake for 5 more minutes.


  • Fresh baguette is a must!
  • We like cheese so much that we added it twice
  • A perfect complement for this is Mushroom Rice (Recipe to follow. Come back in 2 days…)
  • This recipe is from 365 Quick, Easy & Inexpensive Dinner Menus

As always, here are the ingredients!

This one is tough…pour in the soup

You sweating yet? Pour in the water!

No we didn’t have magically chopped onions, we just forgot to take a picture. Chop your onions and then pour them in

Dump in the garlic powder

Are you tired yet? Dump in the oregano

Now the basil

Blend for ten, hey i’m a poet and i didn’t even know it!

Irdy Birdy Chicken!

Pour the sauce

Sprinkle the grated Parmesan and bake for 45 minutes.

Being us…we added extra Parmesan, then added the shredded mozzarella and bake for another 5 minutes.

Take it out of the oven, serve and enjoy! Be sure to share!
