    My kids loved it! My husband and I not as much but it was because I always double the sauces on recipes because sometimes there just isnt enough sauces. Well I think next time this may be one of those recipes I cant double the sauce. I will hopefully like it better when I make it the way your supposed to.

    Very good for a base recipe and already thinking about variations to change the flavor a bit - adding more seasoning or bacon to the mayo/yogurt. One tip is to broil it at the end!

    Very tasty! I think next time I would spread some of the mayo/greek yogurt mixture on the bottom of the dish first. I also mixed the salt, pepper, and garlic powder into the yogurt mixture. Will make again!

    Very good - I used a little more Greek yogurt than Mayo and seasoned chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika. Baked for 35 minutes then broiled for a minute to crisp up the parmesean and served with asparagus. We will make this again!

    amazing chicken, very tasteful and not at all too salty. I did cook it for 40 minutes instead of 30.

    Came out great. A few changes I would make on my end but everything worked perfectly. The 8 year old did not like it but the older kids did.

    It was ok. Very similar to a ranch chicken recipe. A little sour.

    I didn'have any yogurt on on hand, so I used sour cream along with the mayonnaise and cheese. I also sprinkled some bread crumbs on the top for a little extra oomph. Over all, the chicken had a wonderful taste and was very moist. My son loved it. I will be making this again!

    Quick and easy to make! I added the spices for the chicken into the yogurt-mayo spread as well and also added some parsley to the chicken as well. Turned out great!! Will definitely make it again!

    Easy and tastes great. I used sour cream instead of greek yogurt and the mayo mixture was delicious. I accidently used garlic salt instead of garlic powder and it was definitely too salty. Otherwise, the flavor was great! Will make again, but will follow correctly next time!
