  • 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


  1. Preheat over to 375
  2. 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)
  3. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl - taste it, you'll melt!
  4. 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!
  5. Place chicken breasts on a foil lined cookie sheet (so they aren't touching)
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes
  7. Turn broil to high for about 2 minutes before I took them out so they got nice and toasty on the top.
