Mayra Rosas of Sacramento was looking for easy chicken dish recipes.

This simple recipe makes a moist chicken that will bring rave reviews.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 cup real mayonnaise (don't use Miracle Whip)

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 1/2 teaspoons seasoning salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 cup seasoned Italian bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Rinse chicken and pat dry with paper towels.

In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, cheese, seasoning salt and garlic powder. Spread mayonnaise mixture onto each chicken breast so that they are completely coated. Lightly sprinkle each coated chicken breast with bread crumbs, top and bottom.

Place chicken breasts in a baking dish that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 375 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes. Let chicken rest a few minutes before serving.
