Internet’s Best Low-Carb Baked Mayo-Parmesan Chicken!
In case you missed my welcome to 2017 post about how I want my blog to work for people who follow different types of carb-conscious diets, one thing I mentioned is that the South Beach Diet was sold to a company that sells pre-packaged meals. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of South Beach Diet fans still around, and recently I discovered two very active Facebook groups for South Beach Diet friendly recipes and South Beach Diet Support.
And it was in one of those groups where someone shared a chicken recipe in a comment that really caught my eye. Of course if you know me at all you could guess it was partly the use of mayonnaise as an ingredient to keep chicken moist in the oven that appealed to me. I highlighted and printed the recipe that was shared there, and then as I always do, I tried to find the original source.
What I did end up finding was variations of this recipe with rave reviews all over the internet, some with no attribution at all, but many attributed to another website or blog in an endless loop of internet recipe posting that didn’t seem to start in any particular place! Or if there was a starting place, I never did find it. But when I tried out the recipe with Kara, we absolutely loved the Internet’s Best Low-Carb Baked Mayo-Parmesan Chicken we came up with. We did tweak it to use slightly less mayo and Parmesan and add a little poultry seasoning, but the idea was essentially the same. And we could definitely understand why the recipe has been shared far and wide on the internet!
Trust me when I say that this chicken is fully deserving of the title Internet’s Best Low-Carb Chicken, and don’t wait too long to make it! (And if anyone sees a site that claims to be the original source, I would love to credit them!)
Steps for Making Internet’s Best Low-Carb Baked Mayo-Parmesan Chicken:
(Scroll down for complete printable recipe with nutritional information.)
- Trim the chicken, removing pieces of fat or ragged edges. I had two breasts that were extra-large, so I cut them in half and made 6 pieces.
- Pound chicken just enough to make each piece an even thickness.
- I used my trick from Juicy Grilled Chicken Breasts and cut small slits crosswise in the chicken.
- Then mix the mayo, Poultry Seasoning (affiliate link), garlic powder and pepper and stir in the Parmesan.
- Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray and arrange the chicken pieces in a single layer. (Choose the smallest dish you can use that fits all the chicken.)
- Use a rubber scraper (affiliate link) to spread a layer of the mayo mixture over each piece of chicken.
- Bake in a preheated 375F/190C oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the chicken is firm and cooked through and the mayo-parmesan topping is nicely browned.
- Serve hot, and wait for compliments!
Make it a Low-Carb Meal:
This would be great with a low-carb side dish like Lemony Green Beans or Pureed Cauliflower with Garlic, Parmesan, and Goat Cheese for a low-carb meal.
