Mayo makes this recipe what it is - delicious! But if you want even more flavour I recommend taking everyone else's advice of adding more spices according to your own personal taste. Play it up a little! Be creative and make it with your fave spices and flavours! I only added cajun seasoning and lots of garlic powder and it was fantastic - crispy and tender! My fiance loved it too!!! Oh, and definitely cut down on the bread crumbs.

My husband made this for dinner for us. It was easy enough for him, anyone can make it. Too bland though. Could have spicied up the mayo maybe to give it more flavor.

This chicken was tender and moist. I used plain breadcrumbs and added my own seasoning: some garlic, oregano, onion powder. I also added fresh grated paremesan to the breadcumbs and that really added a nice taste. I experimented with how thick to spread the mayo since I had never done it this way. I found that a thin layer was the best. Full coverage, but not thick. When I spread the mayo on thicker, it was a little too wet and mayo-y.

Will make again! made last night and my youngest gave me a thumbs up from across the table. I added a half a packet or so of racch dressing mix to the mayo and sprinkled some cayanne pepper on the top to add a little spice. sprayed the tops with baking spray then baked. By spraying the tops it makes the coating a bit crunchier. more like fried chicken. Yum.

This passed the ultimate test in my four year old asked for seconds! I added some parmesan cheese to the bread crumbs. YUMMY!!

It made an easy, quick dinner! My husband was a bit skeptical from looking at the ingredients, but enjoyed it. I didn't bother with measuring the ingredients....I just spread some mayo on the ckicken, and then coated with crumbs until it looked about right. Next time I may cut up the chicken into bite sized pieces, toss them in mayo, then toss them in the crumbs. Thanks for the recipe!!

Great idea for a quick, good dinner! I used only 1/4 cup mayo, and I added a garlic clove, chopped fresh basil and a dash of cayenne to the mayo after reading reviews that complained it was too bland.

Very good! Squeezed some fresh lemon juice on the meat, and added salt, pepper, and parsley before baking. The meat was tender and perfect after 30 minutes in the oven. Excellent and quick meal.
