Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Split chicken breasts down the middle with a knife, but do not cut fully in half.

  • Mix cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, buttermilk, 2 tablespoons garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon thyme together in a bowl. Divide mixture and stuff evenly into split chicken breasts. Set into a casserole dish.

  • Mix mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon thyme together in a separate bowl. Apply mayo mixture evenly to both sides of the chicken breasts.

  • Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a chicken breast should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
