    Really loved this, so quick and easy. I used lazy garlic instead of powder. Next time I would reduce salt by 1/2. Very delicious.

    It has all the makings of a great dish but the amount of garlic powder and salt called for is wayyy overboard.

    It was okay, but I won’t be making this again. However it might be just my taste. My husband liked it.

    I loved it! It’s the most tender chicken breasts I’ve ever made! I used Hellman’s Mayonnaise and I didn’t have any Greek Yogurt or yogurt. Perfect and easy! I will make again.

    Turned out great. Had to have them in for 30 minutes, not a big dea. Really good and the mayo/yogurt combo added a nice flavor profile.

    So easy and came out very tender and moist I didn’t have yogurt so used extra Mayo to make up for it

    Pretty plain. Added onions to the casserole dish which helped.

    I added an extra 3-5 mins baking time and chicken came out perfectly tender as it slowly was starting to turn reddish brown thru the Mayo-yogurt sauce. Very Easy to prepare. Came out nice and deliciously creamy and far from being dry. Goes perfectly well with a serving of rice. Only for me, I will put another dash of salt and will for sure nail it next time. Definitely will be making this again soon.
