My Oh Mayo

Okay so Ina Garten might kill me and my roommate, Ariane, wasn’t too pleased either when I informed her, but I tried a different approach to this baked chicken. Most of the time, I would take  a chicken breast, dredge it in egg and flour, then breadcrumbs and bake it off. This time, though, I opted for a different route.

Mayonaise. The word is even disgusting, and mayo is not something I typically enjoy. Ever. See, I saw on a couple of websites that if you dip chicken in mayo before you breaded it, the final product is moister and has a richer taste! I know it’s kind of gross-sounding, but making breaded baked chicken like this is actually super delicious (and I’m trying to balance out the whole fattening mayo thing with baking the chicken instead of frying).

Breaded Baked Chicken

  • 1 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
  • 3 tbs Mayonaise
  • 1/3 cup Italian-style Breadcrumbs
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Trim the fat off of the chicken breast and place it between a folded piece of waxed paper. With a meat tenderizer or wine bottle or really anything heavy, pound the chicken to 1/2 inch thickness.
  3. Spoon the mayonaise in a medium-sized bowl. Coat the chicken completely.
  4. In a shallow dish, pour out the breadcrumbs and shake the dish so that the crumbs coat the entire bottom. Using a fork, lay the chicken into the breadcrumbs and then flip it over.
  5. Line a baking sheet with  parchment-paper. Place the chicken breast in the middle and bake it for 20-25 minutes.
  6. Enjoy cut into strips with a side of rice or steamed vegetables or on salad or anything delicious! Chicken goes with just about anything!
