Super easy dinner. But use regular mayonnaise as it will produce a crisp, golden brown skin. Reduced-fat mayonnaise won't produce the same result.

Ingredients

  • 3 lb
    cut-up broiler/fryer chicken
  • 1/2 tsp
    salt
  • 1/2 tsp
    black pepper
  • 1/4 c

How to Make Zesty Italian Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Place chicken, skin sides down, in an ungreased 13x9x2-inch rectangular pan.
  3. Stir together the mayonnaise, Italian dressing, Italian seasoning, and thyme until well blended. Brush half of the mayonnaise mixture over chicken; cover and refrigerate the remaining mayo mixture.
  4. Cover the baking pan, and bake 30 minutes at 375°. Turn chicken; brush with remaining mayonnaise mixture. Bake uncovered about 30 minutes more, or until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut. (If chicken begins to brown too quickly, cover with aluminum foil.).
  5. Discard any remaining mayonnaise mixture.

    Serve chicken immediately, while still hot out of the oven.
