This is my favorite chicken recipe, which I learned while doing low-carb dieting. I prefer dark meat so I'll use 4 legs and thighs. You can do this recipe with pork chops as well.

  • Stir mayonnaise, garlic, rosemary, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl. Place chicken pieces into a 9x13-inch baking dish, spread mayonnaise mixture over chicken, and top with Parmesan cheese.

  • Bake until the juices run clear, chicken is no longer pink in the middle, and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest chicken piece reads at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), about 1 hour and 10 minutes.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

I made this tonight and it was a hit. I did make one change I substituted plain Greek yogurt for the mayonnaise as I abhor mayo (yes my mother wondered where she went wrong;). The substitution was delicious. I used skinless boneless chicken breasts and needed only 30 minutes to cook (pound the thicker side to make a more evenly thick piece). I will definitely make this again. Read More

I made this recipe as written and did not care for it. I REALLY love mayo and all the other ingredients but not in this recipe. Read More

It was super delicious. I made for my brother and myself and we both loved it it was juicy and tenderly. I greased the baking dish with butter and then added the chicken. One more thing I only used chicken breast and it was awesome.. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

Enjoyable but really nothing outstanding. Under-seasoned but moist. The parm on top worked well. Won't make again but made for a decent chicken dinner. Read More

This recipe was simple loved by the kids and is gluten free for my gluten free friends! I added more garlic and I used this with boneless skinless breasts on a bed of rice. (Just add uncooked rice and water in your baking pan). The juices from the garlic rosemary and mayo were then absorbed in the rice for a delicious side! Read More

This was surprisingly good. I was just looking for something easy and it was. Instead of fresh rosemary I powdered some dried rosemary in the blender and put the garlic through a press. I didn't apply the mayonnaise mixture too thickly so it was not too rich. Read More

This was great for a really quick and easy recipe. The only changes I made were adding a dash of thyme garlic powder Italian seasoning and I doubled the rosemary. Very tasty! Read More

This may be the only recipe that I have ever put together that not one person in my family could stomach. It was SO rich but had very little seasoning flavor. My husband ate his salad and didn't realize that I had not put salad dressing on it since there was so much grease on his plate. I am sorry but this is just not the recipe for us. Read More
