This fabulous recipe uses Greek yogurt to create an amazing marinade that makes the chicken incredibly moist. No one will guess that it's been lightened up and not even fried! — Kim Wallace, Dennison, Ohio
Meet the Cook: My family - husband and our two sons, 11 and 8 - tell me they'd like me to fix chicken with this coating mix all of the time. I've had the recipe for years. In fact, I can't remember how I got it...just my many additions and deletions.

The pecans that give this dish its unique nutty flavor are plentiful in the South, and so is chicken. I love to make and serve this easy dish because the chicken comes out moist, tasty and crispy.

The spicy coating for this chicken is one I've put together over the years. My recipe really got a workout when our four children (now married)were young and our family competed out on the rodeo circuit. Whenever the word spread I'd brought along fried chicken, the cowboys would crowd around!
Today, my husband and I run an 800-acre cattle and quarter horse ranch.
Eileen Frank relies on this made-in-minutes mixture to cook up a down-home chicken dinner. "We think this flavorful coating tastes a lot like the one at a well-known chicken restaurant chain," she writes form Castor, Alberta.
This oven-fried chicken is the perfect dish to prepare in advance and take on a picnic because it tastes just as good cold as it does warm. It's been a family favorite for years.

"Soy sauce adds a touch of Asian flavor and paprika lends rich color to this moist mouthwatering entree," says cook Karen Arthur from her Wainfleet, Ontario home. "It's super easy to double or triple the recipe for company, too!"—Karen Arthur, Wainfleet, Ontario
