Very good recipe and my Husband really liked it - he cleaned his plate!! However, I was a little uneasy using 2 cups of mayonaise, so I used 1C mayo and 1C APPLESAUCE!!! Then for an extra measure of lime flavor, I added a "dash" of roses lime juice to enhance the real limes I did use. I am glad I cut the mayo - it would have been too strong otherwise. We'll have this again though, I have to recommend it to others! - J

This dish is totally disgusting. Flavourless and greasy.

This was a wonderful change from Lemon Chicken. Not sure what some of the other reviewers did, but this was not only simple, but very yummy! A couple things I did different: Along with the juice from the 2 limes, I added about a 1/4 cup of concentrated lime juice. I also blended the mayo and the parmesan with a hand mixer for about 1 minute on low. TIDBIT: 12 tablespoons parmesan is equal to 1 CUP.

My family really enjoyed this and it was very quick and easy. I did alter the recipe as I thought that 2C of Mayo was too much. I cut the amount in half and also reduced the parmesan (still left plenty to cover the chicken) I also added a thin layer of bread crumbs and topped with fresh Cilantro which gave the chicken a nice crust. Definitely will make this again.

The chicken was flavorless and the mayo/lime mixture chunked up. It was like eating hot mayo drenched in lime juice on a flavorless chicken.

to quote my wife after making this for her. "best darn chicken I think I have ever had"!

Love it but would definitely lower the mayo amount in half. I use the parm in a jar. it gives it a nicer texture.

Although this dish was very easy and quick to prepare, the mayo/cheese marinade chunked up after cooking and kept sliding off the chicken (like a skin) when cut into. I may as well have cooked the chicken breasts plain!
