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**

Really good. My kids loved this. Chicken stays moist but outside is very crunchy.

This is so tasty and so easy it makes me feel guilty. My husband said 'Don't lose this recipe'. He loves chicken this way.

Everytime i make this everyone loves it! Only difference is that I use thin chicken breast because they cook faster and i season the mayo before putting it on top of the the chicke

The chicken came out very moist. I used Kraft mayo with olive oil and grated Parmesan, next time I'll use a combination of freshly grated Parmesan and Asiago cheeses. The topping is a little thicker than I anticipated, but still very good.
