For Parmesan chicken using Hellman's mayonnaise, gather 1/2 cup of Hellman's mayo, 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese, 4 teaspoons of bread crumbs and 4 chicken breasts. Coat the chicken in the cheese mixture, then cook the chicken in the oven at 425 degrees for approximately 20 minutes.
When selecting the chicken product, consider buying a boneless, skinless variety. Doing so shortens both prep and cooking times and allows the chicken to cook more evenly. If the cheese is not pre-shredded, you need to perform this step before making the coating. Mix the prepared cheese, bread crumbs and mayo with salt and pepper to taste. Italian variety breadcrumbs work well, though you could substitute a plain or Panko variety if desired.
Place the coated chicken on a greased baking sheet while preheating your oven. After the 20 minutes have elapsed, check to see if the chicken has turned golden brown, and measure the internal temperature of the protein. Safe chicken registers between 165 and 170 degrees Fahrenheit. If unfinished, simply return the chicken to the oven, and retest the temperature after an additional five minutes.

For a slightly healthier alteration, the manufacturer suggests switching regular Hellman's Mayo with its Mayonnaise Dressing with Olive Oil.
