Melt in Your Mouth Chicken

If you’re on Pinterest, you’ve likely seen this recipe cross your pinboard a time or two.  After seeing it several times and hearing it recommended by a friend, I know it was time to jump on the bandwagon and give this one a try.

The verdict?  The sauce was delicious and yielded a nice, moist chicken breast.  Mine didn’t brown up as much as the original photo, but it could be because I used lite mayo instead of regular.  I also made this with 4 nice sized chicken breasts and had plenty of sauce to spare.  I easily could have covered 6 chicken breasts in the sauce.

Melt in Your Mouth Chicken
Adapted from

4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup lite mayo with olive oil
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
1 ½ tsp seasoning salt
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp black pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Mix together the mayo, parmesan, seasoning salt, garlic powder, and pepper until well combined.

Spread a quarter of the mixture in the bottom of an 8x8 baking dish.  Place the chicken in the pan and top with the remaining sauce, spreading it evenly over the chicken.  Bake in the preheated oven for 45-60 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.  At 45 minutes, cover the dish with aluminum foil if the chicken is browning too quickly.

Serves 4-6


  1. I'm really surprised at how much this one has gotten around. I made it back in 2010 once and I loved it, but my husband is not a big mayo fan and he was deployed when I first made it, so I haven't made it again. But I do believe it's my most popular/viewed recipe!
