1.5-pound chicken tenders (whole) or chicken breasts (cut in quarters)
2 tbsp mayonnaise
5 ounces plain Greek yoghurt (I used 5% fat yoghurt)
½ c. grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
Parsley (chopped, for garnish)
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
How to make Low Carb Greek Yoghurt Chicken
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F. Using a nonstick oil spray, lightly grease a 12-inch oven-proof pan or 9 x 9-inch baking dish. Set aside.
Step 2: Place the Greek yoghurt, mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Mix well until combined. Add the chicken and toss to lightly coat with the yoghurt mixture.
Step 3: To the prepared baking dish, transfer the thinly coated chicken. Note not to add too much or extra mixture. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked.
Step 4: Put the pan under the broiler for about 2 to 3 minutes or until the top is lightly browned.
Step 5: Remove from the oven when done and serve the Greek Yoghurt Chicken right away garnished with some chopped parsley (optional). Enjoy!
