Chicken is one of America’s favorite foods, so much so that every American ate an average of 84 pounds last year. Although it’s a great go-to ingredient for a family dinner, it’s easy to get tired of the same old chicken recipes. To help combat chicken fatigue, Hellmann’s® mayonnaise has teamed up with Chef Tim Love to launch the “Chicken Change-Up,” offering simple and family-friendly recipe ideas, tips, and tricks to help inspire parents when preparing the nightly meal.

“Chicken dishes are a staple in my household,” says celebrity chef, dad and author Tim Love. “I’m always looking for inspiration to create different types of chicken recipes and—no matter the dish—Hellmann’s® Real Mayonnaise made with simple ingredients like oil, vinegar, and 30 percent cage-free eggs, is my secret for keeping chicken juicy and crispy.”

Whatever your dinnertime challenge, with recipes such as Parmesan Crusted Chicken and Baked Buffalo Chicken, mayonnaise can transform your chicken into a juicier, crispier, more delicious meal that the whole family will love.
