Recipe

This recipe is one of the most popular recipes on Pinterest these days. The concept is simple – chicken that is baked in either yogurt or mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, and spices, usually seasoned salt. The yogurt keeps the chicken very moist while it cooks and adds some great flavor when combined with the cheese and spices. To make everything taste fresher, I usually opt for fresh garlic, a bright spice mix or fresh herbs, and lemon zest but the basic recipe can work with virtually any spices.

    Juicy and delicious. We'll make this over and over again. The fresh lemon zest was important so don't leave it out!

    Am I really the only one leaving a review! This is delicious! I used ranch dressing mix and it blended perfectly with the lemon zest and parmesan cheese though I may try another herb mix next time. It is just as good the next day (and the next). Where has it been all my life?
