The World's Moistest Parmesan Crusted Baked Chicken

The World's Moistest Parmesan Crusted Baked Chicken

Ready in 45 minutes

You won't believe the "special" properties that Mayo offers....

"I used part Parmesan, part provolone for the cheese because I didn't have 1/4 a cup of Parmesan, but it turned out fantastically! I also didn't have Italian bread crumbs either, so I used Panko breadcrumbs with a combination of Italian seasonings I had on hand. The extra fat and stuff from the mayo will go to the bottom of the pan, so only put the mayo and bread crumbs on top to keep it from getting soggy, or use a metal rack to keep the drippings away from the chicken.

Are you making this? 
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup mayo
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
4 tsp italian seasoned bread crumbs; (panko bread crumbs are best, they have a real crunch to them)

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



1. Preheat oven to 425

2. Combine mayonnaise with cheese in medium bowl.

3. Arrange chicken on baking sheet. Evenly top with mayonnaise mixture, then sprinkle with bread crumbs.

4. Bake 20 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. **if you have not flattened your chicken breast prior to this, you will need to cook it about 35-40 minutes total, thicker breasts take longer to cook**

**I will usually sprinkle a little bit of italian seasoned bread crumbs on top of the mayo, then sprinkle some panko on top of that, it really makes a nice crunch**

I got some great compliments from a very picky person when I served this! So simple to make, yet such a creative idea. Will definitely be making this again soon!

A new family favorite. I did change the mayo to Kraft mayo with olive oil and I used Italian Herb & Garlic bread crumbs, because that was what I had. Next time I will try less mayo and the last few minutes on broil. But very moist, tender and absolutely delish!

Excellent! Very moist and tender. I used a blend of Italian cheeses and Italian Panko with some extra Italian seasonings mixed in. Served with asparagus and pan fried potatoes.
