It goes together quickly, I’ve doubled and tripled the recipe for crowds.  Use a 9×13 baking pan or 2 or 3, and bake.  The hardest part is prepping the chicken, I like to make sure to remove any gristle or fat, (so it really does melt in your mouth),  then wash and dry them.  Place them in the pan, add the rest,  It’s a snap!

Melt In Your Mouth Chicken
Moist delicious chicken we like to serve with baked potatoes or on a bed of rice. A big plus for our family, it's gluten-free and low-carb, and everyone loves it!
Serves: 4 servings
  • 4 boneless chicken breast halves, (rinsed and patted dry)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (I like Best Foods Olive Oil Mayo)
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon seasoning salt, (I use Lawry's and cut the amount by half)
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Mix mayonnaise, cheese and seasonings.
  2. Place chicken in baking dish and spread mixture over the chicken evenly.
  3. Bake at 325 for 1-1/2 hours uncovered.
I like to use chicken breast, but chicken thighs and drumsticks work well too.

We served it with fabulous Idaho baked potatoes, glazed carrots, green salad, rolls, and brownie sundaes.  Talk about easy, Sunday dinner perfection.  Trust me, we will be making this again often!

With love from our table to yours…

    I have never cooked with mayonnaise before-how interesting! I must give this a try. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe.

    I have had this before and I will have to agree, the most moist and flavorful chicken!

  3. Debbie

    Now that is the way I like them. Simple. Healthy. Delicious.

  4. Diane Hodrick

    Sounds yummy and easy! Right up my alley! Thanks for sharing. I’m going to give it a try too!

  5. The Café Sucré Farine

    Yum, yum, yum – I’m always up for a new chicken recipe! I seem to never tire of it because there are so many fun variations and this one looks fabulous! I am actually posting a chicken breast recipe today also, I guess we’re just two peas in a pod today! 🙂

    I can never have too many chicken recipes. I’ve never tried mayonnaise on chicken, but it must be part of what makes it so moist and tender.

  7. Garden of Egan

    That looks so good! The mayo part seems unusual, but then again………..yum.

  8. SavoringTime in the Kitchen

    This sounds so much like a recipe my family loves that I’ve made for years but it’s made with Miracle Whip and seasonings, and then grilled. I love the sound of this one with the cheese! I haven’t tried the Best Foods (Hellman’s here) mayo with olive oil yet – sounds good.

  9. Julie

    I’ve made a similar one to this one before. So delicious. Sounds like a wonderful Sunday dinner.

    HOLY MOLEY…..this looks so awesome. I have ck breast in the freezer…let’s see….do I have all the other ingredients….yes, ma’am, I surely do so as soon as those breast thaw, we will have some of this delicious sounding meat.
    Thanks so much for the recipe…

    Hmmmm, good! I’m going to the store today and chicken breasts will be on my list. I usually have them but not today. Thanks so much for sharing!


  12. Cathy

    What could be easier than this yummy recipe? Your whole meal sounds wonderful, Renee, and perfect for a Sunday dinner.

  13. T's Daily Treasures

    Hi Renee, hope all is going well in your new role with the missionary group. I’m vegetarian so don’t eat chicken, but I just saw your banana sheet cake recipe and it sounds divine. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

  14. Pam

    Yum! I love every one of your recipes. Just followed you on Pinterest. 🙂

  15. Attempting Aloha

    Those look delicious! My husband is a Mayo-hater, but I might be able to sneak some in without him noticing…lol


  16. CJ Foss

    Yum! Can’t wait to try it. Thanks for posting. CJ

    looks so great – I too am here from TCB. I am always looking for a new good way to make chicken breast! THANKS

  20. SheilaG @ Plum Doodles

    I just had to stop back in and tell you I made this a couple of nights ago- wow, is it ever good! Will definitely be keeping this one on the recipe file!


    So here’s a really dumb question. Can you taste the mayonnaise? I’m guessing you can’t but I’m asking because I HATE the taste of mayonnaise. I don’t mind using it as long as I can’t taste it. So . . . ?
