Delicious Baked Mayo Parmesan Chicken

I found several variations of this low-carb, Keto friendly recipe with rave reviews and had to try it myself!  It did not disappoint.

This chicken was moist and flavorful, it's one that I will for sure be making more regularly!  And best of all, it is super easy to make!

4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3/4 cup full fat mayo
6 Tbsp shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
3/4 tsp garlic powder
ground black pepper to taste 
Preheat oven to 375.  Spray baking dish with non stick cooking spray.
Put each breast inside a small ziploc bag and pound with a meat mallet until the chicken is an even thickness.  Then cut small, shallow crosswise slits going down each chicken breast, being careful not to cut through.
Mix the mayo and seasonings, then stir in the parmesan.  Put chicken breasts into the baking dish and spread the mixture over the top of each chicken breast, covering the entire surface.  I used a spatula to spread.
Bake the chicken for 35 minutes, or until the juices run clear and the top is nicely browned.   

I only used two breasts, because they were gigantic!  The two made four servings, we ended up just cutting them in half.

I know a lot of Keto-ers will say Best Foods Mayo is NOT Keto.  But, it was all I had.    

 I think next time I will try putting some real bacon crumbles on top, or mixed in with the mayo and Parmesan.  Because, bacon.

It's been awhile!

I have decided to get more active again in my blogging again!  Can you say slacker?  Yeah, that would be me!  I have no excuse.  But, I'm back!

I'm still debating whether or not I should just scrap all of my old posts and start brand new, what do you think?

Update on me:

~  I moved to Colorado in December!  So be ready for plenty of hiking photos!
~  A little over a month ago, I was diagnosed with Pulmonary Embolisms (blood clots in my lungs).  So, my get in shape process is a little tough.  I get out of breath very easily still but am working every day to strengthen my lungs!  Right now, my main focus is my nutrition as I need to be patient and give my lungs time to heal, so my workouts are limited.
~  I'm doing Keto!
I started this Way of Eating May 30, and have lost 12 lbs!
If you don't know what Keto is, it's a high fat, low carb, moderate protein diet.
I'm feeling very good!  I have more energy, and haven't felt like I'm depriving myself or like I'm starving.  My husband has been eating Keto as well and is also down 12 lbs!

That's about it for now.  I have a lot of pics I need to upload and lots of recipes to share so there will be a lot of content added this next week!
