Chicken is a popular choice for family dinners — but no matter how much your family enjoys it, serving it the same way over and over again can stir up cravings for something new.

Chef Tim Love knows all about finding new ways to enjoy familiar foods. He’s teaming up with the Hellmann’s® Brand to let home cooks know about a little secret to spice up their everyday chicken dishes.

“Even with our busy schedules, I enjoy cooking for my family with go-to ingredients that I know everyone will love,” says Love. “One of my family’s favorite recipes is Parmesan Crusted Chicken. It’s chicken done right — tender, juicy and delicious thanks to a secret ingredient — Hellmann’s® Real Mayonnaise. Dishes like Parmesan Crusted Chicken are easy and tasty ways to break menu monotony.”

Following are four more favorites, each with only four steps — so they’re simple to prepare and can be on the table in just 30 minutes or less.
