Steps (4)

Simply reduce the cooking time and temperature on your air fryer as shown here.*

Set air fryer timer for half the cooking time of a conventional oven. Add extra time for doneness if needed.

Reduce regular oven temperature by 25° to 50° (not going below 350°) on your air fryer. If food is getting too dark, reduce by another 25°.

* Always follow manufacturer’s instructions.

  1. 1
    Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment.
  2. 2
    In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise and seasoning mix until well-blended. Place the breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl or plate.
  3. 3

    Dip each breast in the mayonnaise mixture, turning on all sides until well-coated, shaking off any excess. Lay the chicken in the breadcrumbs and turn until evenly coated.

    TIP: Fresh chicken should be pink in color. A pale hue could indicate that the meat has been on the shelf too long.

  4. 4
    Arrange chicken on the prepared baking sheet and bake approximately 25 minutes, or until an internal temperature of 165°F or until juices run clear. (For chicken breasts weighing 6 to 8 ounces, increase cooking time to 40 to 45 minutes.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste This was very easy and quick to make. The chicken turned out very tasteful and moist. I had enough mayo/ranch and bread crumbs for 5 chicken breasts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great with pork chops too!! I love this recipe, it's easy to make, not a long prep time and my 10yr old who hates everything loves it. I also do it with pork chops, it's the same process just a little longer cook time with the bone. It's awesome with a little cheddar sprinkled on top too. P.S. I'm a 30 year old man who only grills and I can make this no problem...... Peace!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite chicken recipe Love this recipe. Is easy, versatile, and makes the most moist baked chicken ever. I use up all sorts of leftovers instead of using breadcrumbs as a twist on this recipe. I crush crackers that have gotten stale, goldfish crackers, or flavored chips. By throwing in some seasonings like onion or garlic powder, and shredded cheese in the breading, it makes a unique flavor which the ranch dressing only enhances. Is so easy to make this recipe your own!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantabuloso! I was skeptical of the mayo at first, not because I don't like it, but because I've never mixed mayo and chicken together before. Not only did I love the final product, but my picky husband and our 3 year old son loved it too! The flavors were perfect. It didn't need any salt or pepper (which my husband usually puts on everything). A fantastic, simple recipe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! My boyfriend loves my fried chicken. So, when I decided to do something a little more on the healthy side of the fence, I found this recipe. Now, he never wants my fried chicken anymore! Anytime we have anything with chicken, he gives me puppy eyes to make this for him. Tastes amazing, the chicken is always super moist, and it goes great with all kinds of side dishes. Not only do I make it for us, but it's ALWAYS a hit a big group gatherings. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something new. Quick, easy, and super yummy! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A friends pleaser. I make this with low fat yogurt in place of mayo, with a little sugar and pepper added and season my own brown bread crumbs. My friends all asked for the recipe the first time I made it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skip the Mayo I make these often, but don't use mayo. Everyone loves them. The breading probably sticks better if you use a bit of mayo. We also make this using pork chops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky 3 year old asked for Thirds! I have made this twice now and everyone in the house loves it. I wouldn't use so much mayo, I usually actually end up not even using half of it. Best thing of all is that even my daughter who I have to struggle with to eat different things, loved it as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy peasy This is a quick flavorful way of cooking baked chicken, even the kids will like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this was something great and different. I put the dry ranch on my chicken then mixed it with the mayo n ranch combo i also made my own bread crumbs and sprinkled the dry ranch on my bread before baking. My 2yr old loved it so much as did the rest of my family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good and EASY! I make this all the time. I use reduced-fat mayo and panko bread crumbs (crunchier). Also I cook it on a cookie rack over a sheet pan lined with foil - all sides get crispy (including the bottom) and cleanup is so fast. Spray with a little cooking spray (like canola) before baking to get these nice and golden.
