Country “Fried” Chicken Recipe


  • 8 Bone-In Chicken Breasts with skin
  • 1 tablespoon Lawry’s Seasoning Salt
  • 1 cup low fat mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Rub olive oil over skin of the chicken and sprinkle with Lawry’s Seasoning Salt then spread the mayonnaise on top of the seasoning. Bake for 1 hour uncovered on lower rack.


  • If you like dark meat you can substitute with Bone-In Thighs.
  • I like to use disposable gloves when preparing chicken. Click here for Momma Chef’s “Poultry Tips” Momma Chef's Poultry Tips
  • After taking the chicken out of the oven, let it sit for 5 minutes to seal in the juices.

About Momma Chef… I am a stay-at-home mom of three active boys (ages 12, 8 and 5).  Although I often feel like I’m struggling with some aspect of parenting, my one sanctuary is the kitchen. My children liked different foods and were constantly requesting a variety of things for dinner. I used to tell them, “I am not an octopus with eight arms who can make eight different meals.” Over time, I figured out a way to make food they all love by developing easy, quick recipes. That led to the creation of my blog, Momma Chef, for parents like me. Connect with Momma Chef on Facebook!
