Melt in Your Mouth Chicken

“Melt in Your Mouth Chicken” is a popular recipe that typically involves tender and flavorful chicken breasts. While there can be variations, here’s a basic recipe to get you started. Keep in mind that cooking times and ingredients might need to be adjusted based on your preferences and equipment.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary (optional)
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the Chicken: Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board and pat them dry with paper towels. This helps the seasoning adhere better and promotes even browning.
  3. Mix the Coating: In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, salt, dried thyme (if using), and dried rosemary (if using). Mix everything until well combined.
  4. Coat the Chicken: Generously coat each chicken breast with the mayonnaise mixture. You can use a spoon or your hands to evenly spread the mixture over the chicken.
  5. Bake: Place the coated chicken breasts in a baking dish. You can line the dish with parchment paper or lightly grease it to prevent sticking. Bake the chicken in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). The exact cooking time might vary based on the thickness of the chicken breasts.

  1. Broil for Crispy Top: If you’d like a golden and slightly crispy top, you can turn on the broiler for the last 2-3 minutes of cooking. Keep a close eye on the chicken to avoid burning.
  2. Garnish: Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the oven. Sprinkle chopped fresh parsley over the chicken for a burst of color and freshness.
  3. Serve: Serve the “Melt in Your Mouth Chicken” hot alongside your favorite side dishes. It pairs well with vegetables, rice, or a light salad.

Remember, cooking times can vary depending on your oven and the thickness of the chicken breasts, so always use an instant-read meat thermometer to ensure the chicken is fully cooked. The internal temperature should reach 165°F (74°C) for safe consumption.

Feel free to adjust the seasonings and ingredients according to your taste preferences. Enjoy your delicious and tender chicken dish!
