Mayo Crusted Chicken

This is a super flavorful and super easy way to prepare chicken.  I have seen this done a lot with fish, but we are not so big with fish in my house- so chicken it is.  Serve along side my Pasta with Creamy Broccoli Sauce.

For this you need to use low fat mayo or a soy based mayo.  The low fat (green cap) Hellman's mayo only has 15 calories and 1 gram of fat per tablespoon. You just can't beat it. I never buy any other mayo and it has basically the same texture and just a lighter, less heavy flavor than regular mayo. Love it.

This recipe is easy to manipulate to other serving sizes- just remember 1 tbsp of mayo per breast.


  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 3 tbsp of mayo
  • 1 tbsp of fresh thyme
  • salt and pepper
  • red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup of panko bread crumbs


  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F
  2. Lay out your chicken on a cooking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
  3. In a small bowl combine the mayo and spices.
  4. Each chicken breast gets one tbsp of mayo- spread out over the top of each chicken breast.
  5. Sprinkle and coat the mayo with bread crumbs.
  6. Bake until golden on top and cooked through -about 25-35 minutes.
