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.
