    Love this... Made a small change. I didn't have any yogurt, so I substituted cream cheese. I softened it in the microwave, and mixed with the mayonnaise. I also substituted Monterey Jack cheese for the Parmesan. It was absolutely delicious & a hit with my picky 11-year-old grandson. I did change up the seasoning a bit, as well. Which, quite frankly, you can season depending on your personal preference. Using a bit of lemon juice, after seasoning, and then pounding down to 3/4", really makes a difference.

    Great base recipe, I did add a little paprika to the breasts and some cayenne and curry powder to the creamy mixture to kick it up a notch. I feel like it would have been a tiny bit too bland if I hadn't but it was delicious and the mayo-yogurt duo created such a beautiful texture and sauce :) will do again with other delicious seasonings in the future

    used mozzarella instead of parmesan and it was quite delicious. i would probably add celery seed and rosemary to give it a little more flavor if I make it again

    Tasty! Even my picky 8 year old liked it. I suggest serving it with a cheesy type rice or something with some flavor as the chicken itself is a little plain. (By itself).

    I was a little skeptical because I’d never used Greek yogurt on chicken before, but this turned out great! Really does “melt in your mouth.” As another reviewer suggested I added crushed red pepper for a little kick and also gave it an extra 5 minutes in the oven.

    These did not come out well for me. They ended up being very sloppy and dry, which is ironic considering the amount of mayo and yogurt and cheese on top.
