Yogurt & Parmesan Chicken Breasts

Those of you who read my blog will know that I came into a lot of Greek Yogurt recently and had to drum up all sorts of ways of using it apart from just eating it! Some of my trials have been a bit hit and miss or need tweaking but this dish was a hit straight away and one my husband said he wanted regularly. This is music to my ears because it’s one of the easiest recipes I have ever put together, no, strike that, it is the easiest recipe I have ever put together.

I served this dish with red pesto pasta and a salad which worked a treat but feel free to serve with whatever you wish!

I am entering this dish into the Herbs on Saturday challenge which is hosted this month by Jen at Blue Kitchen Bakes and usually by Karen at Lavender & Lovage.

Step 1 mix the greek yogurt and other ingredients together (except the chicken).

Step 2 coat the chicken breasts and bake for 35 – 40 minutes.

Succulent and yummy!

    We’re really into Greek yoghurt at the moment but keep defaulting to use it with chillis or to make dips for poppadums – really want to cook a proper recipe with it and this looks perfect, can’t wait to try it out :) Did the bacon & potato bake last night and it was delicious! Think I’m going to start using your blog as my own personal recipe book hahah :) x

      Fabulous Natalie, glad you liked the Potato & Bacon dish and I’m sure you’ll love the chicken breasts too:-) And thank you for massaging my ego:-)

        I made it last night, wasn’t sure what 250ml of yoghurt converted to as my tub was 500g! I used half the tub and it turned out gorgeous, thank you for the recipe! x

        1. Camilla

          That would have been just right as mls and grams always weigh the same on my scales:-)

          1. dawn obrien

            it must have been, because the chicken was succulent and the coating was perfect! x
