Parmesan-Greek Yogurt Chicken - Clean, High Protein

Parmesan-Greek Yogurt Chicken Breasts

Delicious chicken breasts that taste creamy and rich, but are healthy and protein-packed thanks to Greek yogurt! The Greek yogurt also keeps these chicken breasts nice and juicy.

Marinating the chicken breasts is not mandatory; if you are in a rush, it is fine to simply place the chicken breasts on the baking pan and cover with yogurt mixture!
