Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.

In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon zest, paprika, celery seeds, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Season the chicken with additional salt and pepper, to taste.

This is by far my husbands favorite chicken recipe and he is always happy when I tell him I am planning on making it for him! I packed it in his lunch one day and he let a coworker try some, and word spread about how good it was and now I have passed along the recipe to 5 of his coworkers. I gave the recipe to my mom and her, my brother and my dad loved it too. It's easy and delicious!
