Parmesan Crusted Chicken | Delish D'Lites

Crunchy, tangy, deliciously juicy chicken…are you intrigued yet? Then this is the recipe for you! My parmesan crusted chicken is inspired by a popular recipe that uses mayo  (don’t freak out!) to create a mouthwatering crunchy topping for chicken breasts.  I jazz up my recipe by adding some fresh herbs and spices to create a yummy spread that browns, bubbles and bakes into a golden, crisp coating on boneless, skinless chicken breasts.  This might be the most delish chicken you EVER put in your mouth! There, I said it, now go make this chicken!

ingredients4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup canola mayo
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 tablespoons Panko breadcrumbs
Kosher salt
