When I was a kid, my mom always made Corn Flake Chicken.   It was my favorite.  She would dip the chicken in mayonnaise, 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.

I have been making ranch dip with Greek Yogurt Instead of Mayonnaise for years now.    Greek Yogurt Ranch makes the chicken moist and super tangy!

Very good but I would like some kind of moisture on the top before baking. Spray olive oil on top?

Ooooh I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Greek Yogurt! I wish I could find the greek yogurt dressing here. Any idea on how to replace them if they’re not available?

Thank you!

In your salad dressing aisle, look for the powdered ranch packets. Hidden valley has a new one that specifically goes with Greek Yogurt. 🙂
