We'd love to eat fried chicken every night of the week, but unfortunately, our waistline demands otherwise. Luckily, we discovered a pretty convincing replacement. Once you taste these crispy chicken breasts, you won't believe they were cooked entirely on the grill.


1 cup mayonnaise

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1½ teaspoons paprika

½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

1¼ teaspoons salt

¾ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

¼ cup chopped fresh parsley


1. Preheat your grill. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with the oregano, paprika, cayenne, salt and pepper to combine.

2. Once the grill is hot, rub each chicken breast all over with a quarter of the mayo mixture.

3. Grill the chicken breasts until they are nicely charred on each side and fully cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes per side.

4. Garnish with the parsley and serve immediately.
