Melt in your mouth chicken

Another recipe pinned! Thanks to Pinterest for this Melt in your Mouth Chicken recipe. Since I've been meal planning I'm able to plan easier meals with less prep on nights I get off a little later than usual or Patrick has evening practice. Since the chicken in this recipe needs to bake for 45 minutes it wasn't a "quick" one but it was an "easy" one. Just mix together the mayo-parm mixture and start baking the chicken. With all the mayo it's not the healthiest chicken but we found that you didn't need all the mayo that's called for!

While the chicken cooks you can assemble your sides. On this particular evening we went with more easy stuff: a microwaved sweet potato and an arugula salad with goat cheese and dressed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Melt in your Mouth Chicken
Serves 4
4 boneless chicken breast halves
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoning salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder

1. Mix mayonnaise, cheese and seasonings.
2. Spread mixture over chicken breast and place in baking dish.
3. Bake at 375°F for 45 minutes.


  1. I think you had a similar sauce with a fish recipe. I know it is good. Sweet potato and a salad add a healthy take on the meal!

  2. I made this the other evening and was delicious and easy, too. I gave the recipe to Granny, but she had already tried it and liked it so much, too. Will do this again for sure.

  3. I will admit that this is possibly the first recipe you guys have listed for which I already have all the necessary ingredients available at home. As such, I intend to make this recipe in the near future and let you know how it goes.

    Now that I read the title of this recipe once again, I realize that chicken is not really supposed to melt in your mouth or anywhere for that matter. If your chicken did, in fact, melt in your mouth, you should probably call 1-800-232-4636 and 1-888-723-3366. Those are the numbers for the CDC and FDA Food Safety Hotline, respectively, as they should probably be informed of any melting chicken breasts being sold in our supermarkets.
