Melt In Your Mouth Chicken

This is one of those recipes I make over and over again. On those days when I get home late to start dinner, this is my go-to recipe. Melt-in-your-mouth chicken is just that. It melts in your mouth.

Melt In Your Mouth Chicken

It is baked with a mixture of mayo (or Greek yogurt if you are watching your weight), parmesan cheese, dry onion flakes, garlic powder, dried parsley, salt, and pepper. This mayonnaise chicken breast recipe is very easy and tasty.

Literally, it’s just mix, top, and bake. And the chicken always comes out super tender. Try it next time you don’t have much time to prepare dinner and let me know how you like it!

It is a very easy recipe made by baking chicken breasts topped with a mixture of mayo or yogurt, parmesan cheese, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper.

Cooking Tips

  1. Do not add too much salt to the mayo mixture. Remember that parmesan cheese is already a bit salty. Try the mixture and add salt accordingly.
  2. The baking time may vary. Keep an eye on your chicken, and do not overcook it.
  3. If you choose to cut the chicken breasts, the baking time may be less than 45 mins.

I tried this tonight for dinner and it was very delicious!!! My husband said it was a keeper. Made it with veggies. It didn’t take that long to make. Very little effort. Chicken was very moist and flavorful. Everyone should try this one.

Omg sooooo good! And so easy! Thank u for the recipe. We usually don’t like chicken breast in this household but it was great 😊 I pounded the breasts until they were thin and cut the cooking time down to a little over 25min

Just wondering tho- can you use chicken thighs?
