Yogurt Chicken

We had some friends over for dinner on Thursday night. We decided to try this new recipe, needless to say I decided. And we were glad that we did, it was AMAZING. It didn’t brown very well, but another WC Nestie gave me a hint to mix some crumbled rice krispies in with the panko. I’ll try that next time.

Crispy Yogurt Chicken
Adapted from PW Cooks.


2 lbs chicken (I used sliced up chicken breasts)
2 cups plain, unflavored yogurt
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
juice of 1 lemon
kosher salt
seasoned salt
3 cups Panko Bread Crums


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix yogurt, garlic, parsley and lemon in a bowl.
  3. Rinse chicken and pat dry.
  4. Sprinkle the chicken with kosher salt.
  5. In another bowl place the breadcrumbs and a bit of seasoned salt.
  6. Butter a baking dish.
  7. Dip chicken in the yogurt mixture to coat and then roll the chicken in the panko bread crumbs. Note: After many chickens I was thinking that it might have been better to place all the chicken at once into the yogurt mixture to evenly coat, or use a ziploc bag with the yogurt mixture to coat.
  8. Place the breaded chicken into a the baking dish.
  9. Place a small slice of butter over the largest part of each chicken piece (or spray with a bit of pam).
  10. Cover with foil and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes to an hour, removing foil for the last 15 minutes of cooking. Note: I tried to turn them over, but it didn’t work very well, I’ll try again next time.
  11. Chicken is ready when it is nice and golden. Serve and enjoy!

This recipe is a keeper. I was skeptical at first, but it was well worth my time.
