This recipe came off the back of a mayonnaise jar that I tried years ago. It made the best moist baked chicken breasts with a wonderful breading. It is a nice change from crunchy chicken nugget type of crust.
Coating the chicken breasts with mayonnaise is the secret to this wonderfully moist baked chicken. Also I used day old home made bread for the fresh bread crumbs. I didn’t put them in a processor but crumbled the bread by hand. This made lovely soft crumbs.
This recipe is for three servings but can be adapted for as many servings needed. Ideal for cooking for one or two servings. It is so good that you don’t mind eating as left overs.
