Print Friendly

I am always looking for new ways to prepare chicken for dinner and this recipe is a keeper! I saw it over at Copy Kat Recipes and made it that night because I had all the ingredients on hand. The breading on this chicken is full of flavor and it’s baked, so it’s pretty good for you! My entire family loved it- we will definitely make this again!

    I only had strawberry yogurt and was afraid to use it… used egg instead. Will try again next week. It was easy and great!! Thanks!

    I tried this today. I used the plain Greek yogurt. Then, I changed it up a little bit: I omitted the sesame seeds and the dried onions, and instead put those fried onions on the top. It ended up OH. MY. GOODNESS. HEAVENLY!! Thanks for the recipe!

    What does it mean “meaty side up” if the entire chicken is rolled in the mixture? I would like to make the recipe this week and hopefully something my toddlers will actually eat. :) Thanks!

      Some chicken breasts have one side where the ribs were. If your chicken breasts have that, put it on the bottom (which would be meaty side up). Or the thick rounded part facing up. Really nothing to worry about.
