Mayo Chicken


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

Prep Time:
15 mins
Cook Time:
1 hrs 10 mins
Total Time:
1 hrs 25 mins


  • 1 whole chicken, cut into 6 pieces

  • 1 cup mayonnaise

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

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

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 1 hour and 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
