Juicy Parmesan-Crusted Baked Chicken

Last minute chicken. That’s what I’m calling this parmesan-crusted baked chicken recipe! It was the last minute, and I had chicken and no idea what I was going to make. I clicked over to Pinterest, found this recipe, modified it a bit, and dinner was on the table 1/2 hour later. For real.

In the future, I will probably dress this up with some fresh garlic, chopped dill, or even a little curry powder. It was wonderful on it’s own, but it could be the great base for so much more!

Juicy Parmesan Crusted Baked Chicken

Gather

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, about 1 1/4 pounds
1/2 cup fat free greek yogurt
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs

Step by Step

  1. Preheat oven 425˚F.
  2. Place greek yogurt and cheese in a small bowl and mix.
  3. Put chicken breasts on baking sheet (I line my baking sheet with parchment paper to make clean up easy) and spread yogurt mixture evenly atop each.
  4. Next evenly sprinkle bread crumbs on top of each breast.
  5. Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes or until meat thermometer reads 165˚F.
  6. Tops will be golden brown and chicken will be incredibly juicy.
  7. Season with a dash of fresh cracked pepper and sea salt, if desired.
