The Other Holiday Weekend

I think we have posted enough things on here that would lead you to the conclusion that we are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I mean, my sisters and I all attended BYU, and my Mom attended LDS Business College.

So, when I speak about the "other holiday weekend," I am actually referring to two--conference weekend which takes place the first weekend in April and the first weekend in October. At that time, we watch four sessions of General Conference (five, if you are a man) where we are able to listen to the Prophet and president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, as well as our apostles.

We always have Sunday dinner at my Mom's house on conference weekend--and at that particular dinner, there are a lot of us to feed. So, my Mom likes to turn to an easy dinner for that night. The sides tend to change a little (with the exception of funeral potatoes which are a must), but we've found that one of our old favorite recipes works very well for the main course. It is very tasty and I hope this recipe comes in handy for you too!

Parmesan Yogurt Chicken


1 cup Ritz cracker crumbs
1 1/2 Tbsp. Parmesan
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp seasoning salt
8 boneless, skinless chicken halves
1 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup melted margarine


Combine Ritz cracker crumbs, Parmesan, garlic salt, and seasoning salt. Beat the plain yogurt in a small bowl until smooth.  Coat chicken in yogurt, then coat the chicken in the crumb mixture. Arrange in buttered baking dish. Drizzle 1/4 cup melted margarine over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Source: This is a recipe that we have had for as long as I can remember. I have no idea where my Mom found it.

Notes: Mmmm. This is good. No changes necessary--except that you might want to double it or triple it to feed that conference crowd!

Oh, and don't forget the Funeral Potatoes! Here's our recipe.

  1. You know, it's funny. The funeral potatoes and the chicken were served at a church Dinner that your Aunt Chris helped out with back in the 70's. The food was so good that I begged for the recipes and she followed up. They also served peas, which I loved but your dad didn't, so those have, unfortunately,dropped off the radar.

    The funeral potatoes spread like wild fire and before you knew it, everyone had their own variations. I used to put green onions in mine until I took them with a dinner to a new mother and their little 5 year old turned up his nose at them. Ever since they have been onionless.

    Don't know why the chicken recipe didn't spread the same way because it is easy and yummy!!!
