The Yogurt Shoppe Cafe Ranch Chicken

"The Yogurt Shoppe Cafe is in Columbus Georgia and was established in 1987. Ranch Chicken is one of the popular items on the menu amongst many other delicious home cooked meals. One of my friends came upon the recipe in a local magazine and was kind enough to share it with me so I just couldn't wait to share it with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do."

    I am from Columbus, GA. The Yogurt Shoppe was great. It was owned by the Mayor originally. His grand daughters now own since his passing. The Ranch chicken was AMAZING! I love making this, however, I only use have the mayo and replace the other half with plain yogurt. Also if you allow the ranch, mayo, and yogurt mixture to sit in the fridge over night it has a much deeper flavor!!!

    I used to frequent the Yogurt Shoppe, but moved from Columbus in 2000. Eleven years later, I still crave their Ranch Chicken. I was thrilled to find this recipe after years of trying to recreate the dish from memory. It is the same Ranch Chicken I remember. Easy peasy, and my picky husband hand had seconds and carefully packaged the last piece to take to lunch for work tomorrow, which is unusual.<br/><br/>I did replace half the mayo with greek yogurt, just because I remembered the owner saying there was yogurt in all her recipes. I'm sure plain yogurt would have worked just as well.

    Loved this recipe (and so did my family of 5!). Husband actually didn't complain that we were having a new version of chicken and rice (which my kids prefer) and we all loved it. Thanks so much!

    I've never heard of The Yogurt Shoppe, but this is a great recipe. I had a couple of chicken breasts and a few thin boneless porkchops, and this recipe worked for both. Savory, not bland -- so it was perfect for our family.


<p>I've noticed plenty of members are animal lovers. That helps me feel right at home. I have 3 cats that I could tell stories about all day.. <br />My daughter is 9 and never know what to expect when it comes to meal time unless she put in a special request. <br />I love cooking new things all the time since I get bored fairly quickly. Of course there are those recipes that I can't get out of my head and I make them over and over. <br />Following directions is very difficult for me so I use recipes as guidelines and that is it. If something really works for me, I post it. <br />A lot of my favorite recipes are copy cat. I would much rather make something I love from a restaurant than actually go. <br />I make Alice Springs Chicken monthly and Cottage Cheese pancakes at least 4 times a month. Those two recipes will never get old in this house. <br />If I'm taking pictures of my freshly made food, my DD knows she's gonna be trying something new. She doesn't always appreciate it but she is not starving. <br />Enjoy!! <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></p>
