Parmesan Yogurt Chicken

Creamy succulent chicken. Not something you think would be possible in a low fat recipe, yet, as rich as this tastes, its actually a healthy way to make chicken!  Pair up boneless chicken breasts, non-fat greek yogurt, Parmesan cheese and a few other ingredients, and you have a tasty and simple dinner.

The Parmesan cheese browns very nicely in the oven. I wanted it ‘extra’ golden, so I put it on broil for the last few minutes to brown it even further.  This topping would also work great on turkey breast or cutlets.

Simple enough to put together on a weeknight, but its also fancy enough to serve to guests.  Its also kid-friendly.  This is a dish that will become on the regular rotation. Its also great the next day as leftovers.

    Well, I did not have any parm cheese on hand so I used mozzarella….we shall see how it turns out!

    Excellent concept! I’ll have to try this again, but whilst being more observant… word of advice – don’t accidentally buy honey blueberry Greek yogurt… the taste of chicken accompanied by the smell of blueberries is not a good combination.

    This was delicious! My 21mth old and my husband devoured the chicken! The only thing I did differently was that I marinated the chicken overnight with a low cal, low fat honey dijon yoghurt salad dressing from the PC Blue Menu line. I have told every one at work about this recipe and your website! Keep up the amazing work!!!

    • Kristine Fretwell

    My little girl helped me make this Great Easy recipe!.. Let me say after she told me that it was all done and had served it up.. It shocked me that she did this with just me giving her the measurements and her saying “I have it now Daddy” .. We ate it and We Both “Loved it”! You have created “A Small Cook” that is now reading and anxious to try many of your recipes! She says she will be a great cook like you one day! We both Thank You so much Kristine!

    This was AMAZING! I love using Greek Yogurt in recipes but my husband isn’t always a fan.
    This recipe was a big hit with us both and super easy.
