    Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Place the seasoned chicken in an even layer on top of the prepared base. Tightly cover the tray with foil and bake 30 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Carefully remove the foil. Evenly top with the cheese. Return to the oven and bake, uncovered, 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the chicken is cooked through.* Remove from the oven. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the barbecue sauce and mayonnaise. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the baked tray drizzled with the barbecue mayo. Garnish with the crispy onions. Enjoy!
