Melt In Your Mouth Chicken

In our house, we eat a lot of chicken dishes. I love chicken because it is a nice healthy base and you can flavor and cook it a million different ways. We love making slow cooker chicken pot pie on days where we need a comfort dish or Ritz Chicken Casserole when we want a one-pot wonder. But one of our all-time favorite chicken dishes has to be Melt in Your Mouth Chicken. 

Melt in your mouth chicken is a go-to recipe in our house for so many reasons!

  • Easy to make
  • It has cheese which is always a favorite with the kids
  • Moist
  • Tender
  • Flavorful, but not overpowering
  • Ready in under an hour including prep time! 

How to make Melt In Your Mouth Chicken

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a bowl, add the mayonnaise, 1 Cup of Parmesan cheese, season all, black pepper, & garlic powder.
  • Spread the mayonnaise mixture evenly over the top of the chicken breasts.
  • Sprinkle remaining parmesan cheese over the top.  
  • Bake for 45 minutes.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Chicken comes in all shapes and sizes. 45 minutes works for most chicken, but if you use tenders or have really plump pieces you will need to alter the cooking time. Be sure to check the internal temperature to make sure your chicken is properly cooked. 
  • If you are serving this dish to a crowd you can easily double the recipe. Just be sure to use two pans to cook the chicken in. 
  • If you want to add some spice to this dish, add a dash of red pepper flakes into your mixture prior to smearing on your chicken. 
  • If you feel like the mayonnaise flavor is too overpowering, you can swap it out for sour cream. 

Storage

Fridge

If you have leftover chicken you will want to store it in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Can I make this ahead of time?

Yes! This dish can absolutely be made ahead of time! Sometimes I will prep it in the morning and then cover and place it in the fridge. Then if I am not home when it is ready to go in the oven I can call home and have one of the kids or my husband pop it in the oven.
