Skinny greek yogurt chicken


My photo may not look as appetizing as it should, but trust me, this stuff is good. It's a healthier version of "melt in your mouth" chicken.  I tried this out a few weeks ago and we had it for dinner again last night.  Life of Meg adapted the recipe to use greek yogurt in place of mayonnaise.  It really does make the chicken moist. I have a huge dislike for plain chicken breasts- blah! I'm always searching for ways to use them so that they are more appetizing but still healthy. This one is a winner.

The recipe:

4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
1 cup plain greek yogurt - I'm using Chobani

1/2 cup parmesan cheese - grated
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper


Directions:

1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2) Combine greek yogurt, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, seasoned salt, and pepper in a bowl.

3) Line baking sheet with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.

4) Coat each chicken breast in greek yogurt mixture and place on foiled baking sheet.

5) Bake for 45 minutes.
