So on my quest to find appreciation for a baked chicken breast I have run across several recipes that give you a juicy and tender piece of chicken by spreading some mayonnaise on the top. I was skeptical at first, but the first time I tried it there could’ve been a huge disaster! I had accidentally hit the Celsius button on the digital thermometer. By the time I noticed my error the chicken had an internal temperature of about 200 degree Fahrenheit!! Holy cow! If it hadn’t been so late at night I would’ve just said we should go out for dinner, but I told Levi we are just going to have to suck it up. And it turned out to be an AMAZING meal!! Believe it or not the meat was still crazy juicy and even though the toppings were a little crisp, we still loved every bite! We now jokingly refer to this dish as 200 degree burnt chicken brick.
The great thing about this recipe is that you can totally have fun with it! Add whatever herbs, spices or cheeses that you love and I’m confident that it will turn out completely delicious 🙂
Ingredients for 2 pieces:
- 1/8 Cup Mayonnaise
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1/2 tsp Pepper
- 2 tsp Basil
- 2 tsp Granulated Garlic
- 1 tsp Onion Salt
- 1/8 Cup Parmesan Cheese
- 2 Tbsp Italian Bread Crumbs
- 2 Chicken Breasts
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse each breast in water and place on a nonstick cookie sheet. In a small bowl combine everything except the bread crumbs. Spread the mixture evenly over the top of each breast.
Bake the chicken for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the bread crumbs on top.
Bake for another 10-15 minutes until the internal temperature is 165 degrees.
Serve it up with your favorite sides and enjoy!!
