Creamy Garlic Parmesan Chicken
Do you ever make dinner and think to yourself, oh-my-goodness-this-is-the-best-chicken-I’ve-ever-made?!?!?! It’s rare for me. Especially because I’m not a huge fan of chicken breasts – they always end up slightly dry and not overly flavourful. But oh my word, this creamy garlic parmesan chicken is melt in your mouth delicious. I’ve already made it twice in the last week – the chicken is juicy and the creamy parmesan topping tastes soooooo good!
You may be thinking, “Mayonnaise!? On my chicken!?” because let’s face it, it’s not something we normally associate with chicken. But the answer is: YES! You won’t regret it. The mayo and parm mixture tastes amaaaaazing.
Back when I was a teenager, my mom would mix together mayonnaise and parmesan cheese, put it on top of our broccoli, asparagus, or whatever other vegetables we were having, and then we’d broil it for a few minutes until it was golden, creamy and delicious. It tasted sooooo good as a sauce for our vegetables. So I was thinking, “Hey, can we try that on chicken!?” And yes, my friend – Yes you can!

Can I double this recipe?
Yes! You can easily double the recipe (or half it) if you need to. As written, if everyone eats 1 chicken breast, it will make enough for 4 people.
How long should I bake this mayo parmesan chicken?
This will depend on the size of your chicken breasts. Ours were medium to large sized boneless, skinless chicken breasts and I baked them for about 45 minutes at 375F.
I tend to bake my chicken breasts longer than a lot of other recipes say to, but I’m also super paranoid about having raw chicken so I make sure it’s completely cooked through (and then I cook it another 5 minutes… just to be safe…).
The creamy garlic parmesan sauce seals the moisture into the chicken, so even if you bake them for a little longer than other websites say to, they should still be moist and tender.
What can you serve with garlic parmesan chicken?
It tastes great served with mashed potatoes, and any of your favourite green vegetables. We like it with roasted asparagus, and a simple garden salad.
Creamy Garlic Chicken Recipe
The sauce has four simple ingredients – mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, shredded mozzarella and garlic.
Even just mixing together the ingredients for the topping makes the kitchen smell heavenly. (Mmmm… garlic and Parmesan…) And when you bake it, the sauce keeps the chicken juicy and tender. Each bite is packed with melt in your mouth flavour (no tasteless chicken breasts here!).
I can’t believe I’m talking about chicken this way, but I’m seriously swooning over this recipe!
