  • Rimmed baking sheet


  • 4 chicken thighs skinless boneless
  • 4 tablespoons mayonaise Full tablespoons.
  • 4 tablespoons parmesan cheese grated. Full tablespoons.
  • 1 tablespoon dried chili flakes
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper


  • Preheat your oven to 380 F.
  • Season the chicken thighs with sea salt and pepper. Fold the thigh edges under for a more tidy, round look. Place them in a baking pan.
  • In a bowl, mix well the mayo, parmesan, and dried chili flakes. 
  • Place a full tablespoon of the mayo - cheese mix on each chicken thigh. You can sprinkle some more dried chili flakes all over if you like. 
  • Bake for 40 min or until the top is golden brown and the chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove the chicken thighs to a wiring rack to drain from all the extra fat and serve immediately.


  • This recipe doesn’t use any oil because it cooks in the fat from the mayonnaise and grated parmesan cheese.
  • I prefer to use chicken thighs for this recipe. I get organic, free-range chicken thighs with no skin or bones. Feel free to use skinless chicken breasts if you like. Adjust the cooking time accordingly because breasts cook longer than thighs.
  • I think Hellmann's mayonnaise is one of the best mayos out there. I have tried several, and Hellmann's makes the best parmesan crust.
