Food Friday-Crispy Yogurt Chicken

I love Pioneer Woman's website. She has some of the best recipes and none of them have disappointed. This recipe is for Crispy Yogurt Chicken. I did not use parsley because I did not have any so I adapted it to my own liking. I also cooked enough for only 3 people instead of 1,000,000 (she has a big family).

Here's what I did:

3 chicken breasts
1 cup plain, nonfat yogurt
Juice from half of a lemon
garlic salt (though I think fresh garlic would have been better)*
Italian seasoning to taste
1 cup Panko bread crumbs

I mixed together the yogurt, lemon, garlic salt, & Italian seasoning. After washing the chicken and patting it dry, I rolled it in the yogurt and then the bread crumbs. Place in a greased casserole dish and top each chicken with a pat of butter. The butter is important b/c it helps the breadcrumbs to crisp. If you use drumsticks, just place the butter on the "meatiest" part of the chicken.
Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes and then uncover for another 15 minutes.

My little one was yumming his way through the meal.
*If you use fresh garlic, be sure to use salt on the chicken.

I need to try this...we eat a lot of chicken and sometimes I get stuck in a rut on how to fix it


I'm unnaturally obsessed with Pioneer Woman. I love love love her pictures and recipes and hilarious writings.


This looks good. It reminds me of a recipe my MIL made, but hers used 1c. Miracle Whip. I never could get over that to enjoy the chicken. It was really moist, but ugg. We loving using plain yogurt here. I'll have to try this.
