Why does mayonnaise keep chicken so moist?

One simple ingredient to add flavor and keep chicken from drying out every time is mayo!  Yep, you read that correctly, mayonnaise isn’t just for sandwiches and tuna salads. Oh no, it’s also great for creating juicy, tender chicken too.  

Most recipes use butter or oil for cooking chicken, but mayo is the better fat option when it comes to moist chicken.  While the chicken cooks, the chicken will absorb fat from the eggs and oil in the mayo.  Keeping it moist while adding flavor.  


Ingredients you’ll need-

  • Chicken– I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
  • Seasoning– Cajun seasoning (I used Daks no salt), ranch dressing mix, Italian seasoning, panko crumbs
  • Parmesan Cheese–  I like a freshly grated parmesan.  Whatever you have on hand will work. 
  • Mayonnaise– Mayo, you could say is my secret ingredient… It makes it nice and juicy.
