    I loved it! It’s the most tender chicken breasts I’ve ever made! I used Hellman’s Mayonnaise and I didn’t have any Greek Yogurt or yogurt. Perfect and easy! I will make again.

    Turned out great. Had to have them in for 30 minutes, not a big dea. Really good and the mayo/yogurt combo added a nice flavor profile.

    Pretty plain. Added onions to the casserole dish which helped.

    I added an extra 3-5 mins baking time and chicken came out perfectly tender as it slowly was starting to turn reddish brown thru the Mayo-yogurt sauce. Very Easy to prepare. Came out nice and deliciously creamy and far from being dry. Goes perfectly well with a serving of rice. Only for me, I will put another dash of salt and will for sure nail it next time. Definitely will be making this again soon.

    This is a favorite dish for my household. I use one cup of yogurt instead of half mayo and it’s awesome. Love love love this dish

    The chicken was tender and moist but we didn’t care for the flavor of the yogurt/Mayo. Probably won’t make it again.

    This recipe is very similar to one I've been using for years now only it's mayo mixed with parmesan cheese or romano cheese and sprinkled with seasoned bread crumbs. So I'm sure this one is delicious but I wouldn't add yogurt. The chicken is moist because of the mayo.

    Absolutely delicious! Being lazy, I made it in the slow cooker and added more of the mayo/yogurt mixture ... and it is perfect! This will definitely be served again-and-again at my house!

    I absolutely love this recipe. the chicken is moist and flavourful. The cheese hardens too fast imo so I leave it out sometimes.
