Yum Chicken | Recipe

I’ve seen a lot of Facebook posts over the last few days requesting favorite recipes so families can meal plan with new ideas.  I love that – there are so many delicious options out there and some of my favorite meals have come from friends!  I’ve been in the thick of meal planning myself, because I’ve been trying to freeze meals for my family while I’m in China.  So I thought I’d share one of our go-to’s that everyone (like all 4 children) eat without complaint and even enjoy!  It’s not a freezer meal, but it’s so easy to make and throws together with about 10 minutes of prep.  It’s a healthier version of the Hellman’s Mayo Chicken and only requires FOUR ingredients.

I present to you Yum Chicken:


1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Italian breadcrumbs for topping


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease an 8×8 glass or metal pan.  Place chicken breasts in the bottom of the pan.  In a separate bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt and Parmesan cheese.  Spread the mixture on top of the chicken, and then top with Italian breadcrumbs.  Or any breadcrumbs you prefer or have on hand, it really doesn’t matter!  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until chicken is done.

Serve immediately with a veggie of your choice.  We like steamed broccoli but anything you have available will work.  This meal pulls together so quickly because it has so little prep time.  I cook the veggies and prepare the dinner table while the chicken is in the oven, so we’re ready to eat as soon as it’s done!

What’s one of your family’s go-to meals?

      Nicole Renée - Shana, you could use Crisco! I usually use extra virgin olive oil for this recipe, but Crisco would work too! You’ll have to let me know how you like it!ReplyCancel
