Melt in your Mouth Chicken Bake

Oooooo I am SO excited to share this recipe with you. Why you ask?? Because it is a recipe YOU created. Yep, I took all the changes and variations you all suggested on my Parmesan Chicken Casserole, and created this recipe. I must confess, it may be even better than the original. The breadcrumbs on top really enhanced the flavor and my entire family loved it.

From start to finish, I had this on the table in 40 minutes!! I served ours over pasta, but if you prefer it over rice or by itself, no problem, it will be just as yummy!!

I love how this recipe has evolved. It started out by my mom making her melt in your mouth chicken, then I changed it up to the Parmesan chicken casserole, and now it has turned into this melt in your mouth chicken bake. Each and every variation is amazing, so you can’t go wrong!!

Enjoy!!

Love this recipe! I am wondering though, does the yogurt/mayo only go on the top or do you cover the whole chicken breast top and bottom with the yogurt/mayo?

I made this tonight and served it over pasta. It was so good and the flavor was amazing! The only thing I wish is that it made a little sauce for the pasta. I liked it the way it was, but my bf wanted it to have some sauce. Suggestions?

This looks and sounds amazing! Would you say the mayo and Greek yogurt taste equally as good? I’m thinking of making a double recipe of this for a nephew and niece and their brood of seven kids. Thanks so much for the recipe.

I stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest and will be trying out tonight I can’t wait to have my family enjoy it!! It sound delicious! And one question I know it says Greek yogurt but do you think I could use plain yogurt instead of mayo or Greek yogurt? Thanks for sharing!

I tried it with greek yogurt, and was going to add sliced mushrooms, but forgot before I added the sauce. So I sauteed them in butter with some garlic. The chicken over spaghetti squash with the mushrooms on top was delicious. My family (from my mom to picky husband to even pickier 13 year old) all liked it. Home run! Thank you for sharing the recipe! :-)

Trish, I’ve looked everywhere in Houston and I cant find the Portobello artichoke dip mix. Although I found it on line, the shipping charge was very costly. Please l me where you found it.

Made this today. Cut 2 chicken breasts into thick strips
Used both mayo and Greek yogurt. I doubled most of the ingredients
I used golden flax meal instead of the breadcrumbs-because I didn’t have bc on hand, cayenne pepper instead of red pepper flakes….I cooked it in the slow cooker for 5 hours on low
It turned out so delicious! Everyone really liked it snd I’ll be making it again very soon!
I served it with quinoa with kale and a spring mix salad

GUYS.
I place this heavenly chicken over pasta that I’ve tossed with olive oil, lemon juice & minced garlic. We sprinkle feta in there too. I am so thankful for this recipe. It is one of our favorites. THANK YOU!
