- 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.
Heat oil in a heavy-duty skillet.
Add the chicken, and cook for 10 to 12 minutes, flipping when a parmesan crust is golden brown. Remove from the pan when an instant-read thermometer registers 160° F.
Allow to rest for 10 minutes prior to serving.
Preheat the air fryer to 375° F. Line your air fryer with an air fryer liner.
Spray the chicken with oil and arrange in a single layer in the air fryer.
