It might be had to believe, but this recipe just might be World’s Best Baked Chicken.
I didn’t believe it either.
I’ve tried other recipes like this that use mayo but I’m not a mayo person and the yogurt is a mellower flavor. The chicken came out cooked perfect with a delicious crispy top. Yummy!
We love this recipe so much that we make it often. It’s one of our favorite chicken recipes because it pairs so easily with any side dish or vegetable.
Plus, it’s great for any season as it isn’t centered around flavors from one specific season or spice. We want to hear what you love about it!

- 4 chicken breasts
- generous 1/2 cup of plain low-fat greek yogurt
- generous 3 tbs of grated parmesan cheese
- 2 tsp. finely chopped garlic fresh
- 1 tsp. finely chopped onion fresh
- a good pinch of salt & pepper
- 1 tsp. dried italian herbs salt free
Preheat over to 375
Place chicken breast in a large resealable bag or between sheets of wax paper and give them a good whack with the bottom of a pan or a rolling pin. Alternately, if they are coming out of the freezer and are still a bit icy, you could butterfly the breasts (and adjust the cooking time accordingly)
Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl - taste it, you'll melt!
I took each of my pieces of chicken and pulled them through the yogurt coating on either side. You could just dump it in the ziplock but I really wanted to keep as much of the coating as I could!
Place chicken breasts on a foil lined cookie sheet (so they aren't touching)
Bake for 30-35 minutes
Turn broil to high for about 2 minutes before I took them out so they got nice and toasty on the top.
