  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk mayonnaise, garlic, rosemary, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl. Spread mayonnaise mixture evenly over each piece of chicken.
  3. Spread rice out into the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Pour water over rice. Place chicken pieces on top of rice and top with Parmesan cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until chicken breasts are no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 35 to 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

This dish was very tasty! I will be making this again and possibly bringing to others when they need a home-cooked meal delivered. My son who dislikes chicken even ate it! I have a large family so I used 3 breasts, split horizontally to make 6 pieces. I also doubled the rice and water. It filled my 9x13 pan nicely and I still had plenty of the mayo mixture to evenly coat the chicken breasts and then some! Everyone in my family loved the mayo mix and parmesan on the chicken. I found 1/2 cup of the parmesan was more than enough. I didn't have fresh rosemary so used about 2+ teaspoons dried rosemary. I only had brown rice on hand, so used that, but consequently the rice was not done by the time the chicken was. Not the recipe's fault as brown rice takes longer to cook and I should have considered that. Next time I will either use white rice or I will just bake the brown rice for a while until half cooked, then add the chicken and bake for another 45 minutes. Also, I added frozen peas to the rice mixture. I really liked the extra color and taste the peas added to the dish. I felt like it rounded out the meal and added extra nutrition. This dish would be great served with some homemade rolls! Thanks for a great recipe!

The flavor was good and it was definitely easy, but my rice did not cook in 35 minutes. After adding 15 minutes it was still a little crunchy but edible. I used regular white uncooked rice but maybe using parboiled and hot water would have helped.

I posted the photo of the recipe, just figured this delicious recipe isn't getting the attention that it deserves. I wanted something quick and simple but yet tasteful to make for supper last night and I usually don't make a recipe that doesn't have a photo but this sounded absolutely delicious and had to make it without there being a photo, deciding to add one of my own. Instead of using rice, since I didn't have any, I used Couscous. I cooked it and then I also added some onion powder and parsley flakes in with the Mayo for the Mayo I used Mayo with/Olive Oil...might I say that turned out delicious. Will definitely be making this little dish again. :)

I'm not a rice lover, so just did the chicken and served it w/Knorr's pasta. Duke's mayo gives it a nice flavor and keeps it moist.

When I finished putting this together I was very leery about it working out. How could something so easy be good? The only change I made was to use dried basil instead of Rosemary since that's what I had on hand. I also doubled the rice and water because my kids eat a lot of rice. You end up with moist chicken, fluffy rice and delicious sauce, with only one pan to clean. What more could you ask for? My husband and triplet 15 year olds loved it and asked if I could make it again, soon! One more thing, my husband doesn't like mayonnaise so I made sure not to tell him the main ingredient. Shhhhh!
