  1. Chicken Selection: You can also use boneless, skinless chicken breasts or chicken thighs for this recipe. Adjust the cooking time accordingly based on the thickness of the chicken pieces.

  2. Mayo Selection: Use regular mayonnaise for this recipe. Avoid using light or reduced-fat mayo, as it may affect the richness and creaminess of the dish.

  3. Parmesan Cheese: Grate fresh Parmesan cheese for the best flavor and texture. I use pre-packaged grated Parmesan but it may not melt as smoothly or provide the same depth of flavor.

  4. Garlic Intensity: The amount of garlic used in this recipe can be adjusted according to your personal preference. If you love a strong garlic flavor, feel free to add an extra clove or two.

  5. Seasoning Variations: You can add additional seasonings or herbs to the mayo mixture to customize the flavors. Options like dried Italian seasoning, paprika, or dried herbs like thyme or rosemary can enhance the taste profile.

  6. Breadcrumbs Option: For an extra crispy exterior, you can coat the chicken with breadcrumbs after applying the mayo mixture. Simply dip the chicken in breadcrumbs before placing it in the oven. This will add a delightful crunch to each bite.

  7. Oven Temperature and Cooking Time: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) for this recipe. Cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of the chicken. It is essential to ensure that the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (75°C) for safe consumption.

  8. Resting Time: Allow the chicken to rest for a few minutes after removing it from the oven. This will help the juices redistribute and result in more tender and juicy chicken.

  9. Serving Suggestions: Serve the Amazingly Tender Mayo Parmesan Garlic Chicken as a main course alongside your favorite sides. It pairs well with mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables, or a fresh green salad.

  10. Storage and Reheating: Leftover chicken can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, place the chicken in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 10-15 minutes or until heated through.
