Whether it's lending rich depth to a pan sauce or turning a boring piece of chicken into a moist pan-fried main, yogurt should be a staple in your healthy refrigerator. Most of these recipes feature plain yogurt. Use your favorite brand, or look for a new one. We like yogurts that do not have added sugars, thickeners, or colorings.
