Mayo parmesan chicken is the most delicious and easy chicken recipe out there, and it’s ridiculously simple to make. You can cook it using either a deep pan or a skillet, but I prefer it in a skillet for the cooking time and to make it a one-pot meal.

You can then serve it with a healthy salad or steamed veggies and a side of lemon rice.

  • If you don't like parmesan cheese then you can also use others like Italian blend, Fiesta blend, Paper jack, and so on.
