“Pinterest” Greek Yogurt Chicken


I remember the first time a coworker told me about Pinterest. It made absolutely no sense to me. I did not understand how a collection of links to other websites could really be all that addicting. Flash forward a year and Pinterest has become a huge craze. And I finally understand why. The ability to save and organize recipes, wedding ideas and home decor tips all on one convenient little website is really pretty cool. But my only problem is that I almost never make or use any of the ideas that I so carefully pin and save. Until now. I had seen this recipe for Greek yogurt chicken pinned a number of times, and the reviews were always fantastic. So when we had a family dinner this weekend I decided to give this recipe a try. And I was very pleasantly surprised. This chicken is not only incredibly easy to make but it is also really delicious. The Greek yogurt mixture locks in the moisture of the chicken and the flavor is fantastic.  And it’s a healthy recipe? Can’t get much better than that. Well played Pinterest, well played.

Ingredients: Makes 4 servings

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons seasoning salt (I used Lawry’s)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Place chicken breasts on a lightly greased cookie sheet
  2. In a small bowl, combine next 5 ingredients (yogurt through pepper)
  3. Spread yogurt mixture on the tops of each chicken breast
  4. Bake chicken at 375 for 45 minutes
  5. Remove chicken from the oven and turn to broil on high heat
  6. Return chicken to oven and broil on high for 3-4 minutes until topping is slightly browned
