Crispy Baked Greek Yogurt Ranch Chicken

When I was a kid.  My mom always made Corn Flake Chicken.   It was my favorite.  She would dip the chicken in mayonnaise then coat the chicken with corn flakes and bake it until it was super crispy.  Some people freak out a bit when they think about using mayonnaise in a chicken recipe.   But think about what mayonnaise is?  Oil and Egg.

When making crispy chicken, I have started coating my chicken with Greek Yogurt.  Greek Yogurt makes chicken really moist.   Plus, you can add different flavors.  So far, I have made Yogurt-Sriracha Crispy Chicken and Maple-Mustard Yogurt Chicken.  Both flavors have turned out really delicious.

I have been a little obsessed with making ranch dip out of Greek Yogurt.  I basically treat it like a guiltless pleasure.  What is so bad about a few spoonfuls of Greek Yogurt?

This recipe is easy.  It only takes a few minutes to coat each piece of chicken.

I have not had my fondue pot for years.  But,  I still keep my fondue sticks around for moving around raw meat.  This way, I don’t have to touch the raw chicken.  I actually use my fondue forks all the time.  tearing open raw meat containers, poking baking potatoes and more.

Just like any time I bake crispy chicken in the oven, my kids gobbled this up.   I loved the ranch flavor.  It was so tasty.
