- 1 cups Plain, Unflavored Yogurt
- 2 cloves (to 3 Cloves) Garlic
- Parsley, To Taste (I used about a handful of leaves, maybe 3 tbs. in all)
- 1 whole (juice Of) Lemon
- Chicken breasts (thighs or legs are her preferred method)
- Salt To Taste
- 2 cups Panko Bread Crumbs
- Butter (1 Pat For Each Piece Of Chicken)
Rinse chicken and pat it dry. Sprinkle with (kosher) salt.
In another bowl, place the bread crumbs. Sprinkle with salt and stir lightly.
Butter a baking dish. With a pair of tongs, place the chicken, one piece at a time into the yogurt mixture. Turn it over thoroughly to coat. Then roll the chicken in the Panko bread crumbs. Cover each piece thoroughly with bread crumbs and place in the baking dish.
Place a slice of butter over the large part of each chicken piece. Cover with foil and bake in a 350º oven for 1 to 1 ¼ hours, removing the foil for the last 15 minutes of cooking (it might take a little longer). When the chicken is nice and golden, remove from the oven and enjoy!
VERDICT--This chicken was so delicious it made me clean my pantry!!!! It was so juicy, it had such great flavor, it was really easy and I will be making it again very soon. The original recipe was for 2 cups of yogurt but there was so much left when I was done, I changed my version to reflect just 1 cup of yogurt. I think it will bump up the flavor too, which was good but I bet its even better next time.. I am going to make sure I always have what I need to make this chicken in a pinch because it is now my go-to recipe!
