    • Hi Amy 😉
      The yogurt keeps the chicken nice and moist and when checking after the first 10 minutes you can get an idea if they’re cooking quicker. I know everyone’s oven is different and the strips could be smaller or bigger though. They are so tasty though mmm I saw a recipe using almond flour too which I am gonna try next 😃
