Tuscan Chicken

I never get tired of chicken.  I love all the thousands of ways that you can top a chicken to make it a unique and tasty meal. 

This topping is amazing.  Seriously,unbelievable chicken here people. Not only is it gorgeous to look at but it's incredibly simple and fully of flavor.

This was so good, we deemed it company worthy. It's so easy and delicious that it would be a snap to whip up when you have guests. 

We ate this chicken with sweet potatoes and broccoli slaw salad.  Fantastic meal!

Tuscan Chicken
Adapted from Once a Month Mom

1/3 cup mayo
3 tbsp. diced red pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. dried parsley
pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breast halves

Mix together all the ingredients except chicken.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Arrange chicken on a baking dish and spread mayonnaise mixture over each chicken breast.  Don't be shy, spread liberally, this stuff is tasty.  Bake for about 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
