Yoghurt and ranch mix made a nice marinade and held the crust in place. Chicken came out of the oven crisp and tasty; the spritz of cooking spray is a great tip. Both of the young adults in our household commented that it needed a dip: maybe more ranch dressing?
Yummy chicken! I enjoyed the marinade of Greek yogurt, chives and the ranch mix. The chicken came out crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. You could really taste the ranch flavor, too. Thank you and good luck in the contest! :)
This was very moist and very yummy. The whole family are ranch-aholics, so it went over well.
