Mayonnaise Chicken Breasts

This is a recipe that I have wanted to try for a while.  I finally got around to it last week and am just now posting it on my blog.  We really liked this dish and will certainly make it again. I cut this recipe in 1/2.
I got this recipe from The Deen Brothers from Food Network

Printable Recipe

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 lemons, zest finely grated
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon celery seeds
1 teaspoon salt, plus additional for seasoning
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus additional for seasoning.
pinch of cayenne pepper
4 (8-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil for easy clean-up.
In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, lemon zest, paprika, celery seeds, salt,, pepper, and cayenne. Season the chicken with additional salt and pepper, to taste. Arrange the chicken on the prepared baking sheet. Slather the mayonnaise mixture over the chicken. Bake until the juices run clear when the chicken is pricked with a fork, about 25 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a serving platter and serve hot.
