Parmesan Yogurt Chicken

Once again school and work have been running my life.  While I can't post often, I refuse to let the things I have to do take over the things I want to do!  So last week I made dinner for my lovely friend Alaina, she made couscous and roasted parsnips and broccoli yum!  I realized I hadn't made my mum's Parmesan yogurt chicken dish in so so long, so I did.  Growing up my mum made this dish for us kids all the time, it was my favorite.  The cool thing about this dish is that you can make it as fatty or low fatty as you I did:)

Serves 4
From my mum's cookbook

4 chicken breasts
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt 
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup low-fat or fat-free plain yogurt
1/4 cup smart balance mayonnaise or lite mayonnaise
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/3 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

The Process
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.  Grease a large glass baking pan and place chicken breasts in pan.

3.  Drizzle chicken with lemon juice and sprinkle salt and pepper over chicken.

4.  In medium bowl combine yogurt, mayonnaise, green onions, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper, and thyme.  Mix well.

5.  Spread mixture evenly over chicken.

6.  Put chicken in oven and bake for 50 minutes or until chicken is tender and cooked.

7.  Take chicken out of oven and drain extra juices.  Turn oven to broil.

8.  Sprinkle parmesan cheese over top of chicken and put back in oven.

9.  Broil until golden brown, about 3 minutes.  Take out of oven and eat with creamy sauce all over everything!

This is one of the best comfort meals ever!  Great for anytime of the year too!
