Melt In Your Mouth Chicken

Let’s start by gathering the ingredients needed to make this mouthwatering dish:

4 Boneless chicken breast halves
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 cup Full-fat mayonnaise
Baking & Spices:
1/2 tsp Ground black pepper
1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Now that we have all the ingredients ready, let’s dive into the cooking process:

Preheat Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C). While the oven is heating up, grease a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray to prevent the chicken from sticking.
Prepare Chicken: Season both sides of the chicken breasts with garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. This ensures that the chicken is flavorful throughout.
Coat Chicken: In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese until well mixed. The mixture should have a creamy consistency. Spread this mixture evenly over each chicken breast, ensuring that they are fully coated.
Bake: Place the coated chicken breasts in the prepared baking dish and transfer them to the preheated oven. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the topping is golden brown and bubbly.
Serve: Once the chicken is cooked to perfection, remove it from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh herbs like parsley or chives for an added burst of flavor.
Cook Notes and Variations:
To enhance the flavor and adapt the recipe to your preferences, consider the following tips and variations:

Add Some Heat: For those who enjoy a bit of spice, consider adding a pinch of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to the mayonnaise mixture. This will give the dish an extra kick without overpowering the other flavors.
Cheese Variations: While Parmesan cheese is the star of this recipe, feel free to experiment with different types of cheese. Cheddar, mozzarella, or even blue cheese can be used to create unique flavor combinations.
Fresh Herbs: Incorporating chopped fresh herbs like basil or thyme into the mayonnaise mixture can add a layer of freshness and aroma to the dish. Experiment with different herbs to find your favorite combination.
Keto and Low-Carb Versions:
For those following a keto or low-carb diet, here are some adjustments you can make to the recipe:

Keto Version:
Use Full-Fat Ingredients: Stick to full-fat mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese to keep the dish keto-friendly. These ingredients add richness and flavor without compromising your dietary goals.
Serve with Low-Carb Sides: Pair the chicken with low-carb sides like roasted vegetables or a crisp salad to complete the meal. This ensures that you stay within your carb limits while enjoying a delicious and satisfying dinner.
