Parmesan Crusted Chicken with Mayo

Easy dinners like this Keto Parmesan Crusted Chicken will never go out of style! The marriage of a mayonnaise-based marinade topped with a crispy cheese coating is simple but shockingly delicious. (And there is no need for breadcrumbs!) When I make this easy low carb chicken dinner, my family falls upon it like a pride of hungry lions.

– ½ cup mayonnaise – 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard – ½ teaspoon dried thyme – 1 teaspoon sea salt – ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper – 16 ounces chicken breast – 1 ½ cups freshly grated Parmesan – 1 teaspoon baking powder – ¼ cup avocado oil or oil spray


In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, thyme, salt, and pepper. Coat the chicken with the mayonnaise mixture. Allow the chicken to sit for at least 15 minutes- If possible, do this up to one day ahead of time.


Place the parmesan and baking powder in a shallow dish and stir to combine. Dredge the chicken in the cheese mixture, pressing the cheese into the make.


Preheat the oven to 450°F.


Put an oven-safe wire rack over a baking sheet.


Spray the chicken with oil


Arrange the chicken on the wire rack and bake for 18 to 22 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the chicken is cooked through and an instant-read thermometer registers 160° F.


Allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
