    I have two of the pickiest eaters in my family—they will basically only eat 4 things! They LOVED this I used mayo because I didn’t think they would go for the stronger taste of sour cream, but I might try it next time.

    This was delicious. I did add a few more spices, Cumin, Old Bay. But even my picky 10 year old loved it. Very juicy!

    My boyfriend and I enjoyed this a lot! But i added chilli powder, red pepper powder and curry powder to the spice mix it gave it an extra punch. It took me more than 30 minutes to cook but that's probably my oven's fault. Would make again.

    This was super easy to make so I'm still giving it 3 stars for the rest ease and recipe structure, but i gotta say, i didn't care for it. I normally love Greek yogurt, but it gave the chicken such a sour taste that i couldn't get past it, even with the cheese on top. Followed the directions to the letter, carefully measured every amount, and i even went back and checked my yogurt and mayo both afterwards to make sure they were still good and they were perfect. I guess it could just be me, but neither my kid or i liked them at all.

    I made 6 chicken breasts and added about a tsp of No Salt Chicken Seasoning (from Costco). I used real Hellman’s mayo, but am wondering how it would turn out w an avocado mayo or a healthier option. My husband only likes Hellman’s, but I bet I could sneak something healthier in and he wouldn’t notice.

    Stayed juicy and good flavor with some minor changes. 1. I mixed in half a teaspoon of the pepper, salt, garlic powder mixture to the mayo topping. 2. Broiled for a few extra minutes after sprinkling additional cheese on top.

    Turned out great! I broiled for a few minutes after bake to get the cheese browned.

    I enjoyed the flavor. It did turn out a little tough but could still cut it with a fork.

    Super easy and quick, came out delicious! Substituted sour cream for yogurt and colby jack for the cheese. Definitely will make again!

    My family absolutely loved this. I did get the thick chicken breasts, so it took about 45 minutes to cook. I'll definitely be making this again!
