To celebrate the week of Thanksgiving, each day, we will be sharing a recipe that is healthy and delicious. The third of the week is Fried Chicken, a delicious entree filled with lots of flavors and crunch. The combined prep and cook time for this meal is approximately 30 minutes. This simple, low carb dish feeds four people.
1 tsp paprika
1 each cooking spray
1/2 tsp ground thyme
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup plain yogurt, whole milk
10 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts
- Preheat oven to 350°F and prepare a baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
- Trim the fat off of the chicken, cut into 4 equal pieces, and marinate them in the yogurt for several minutes.
- In a bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, paprika, thyme, and garlic. Dredge the chicken in the crumb mixture and arrange on the baking pan.
- Bake for 20 minutes; watch closely to ensure that the chicken “crust” does not burn.
