I love this ?fried? chicken because it?s incredibly versatile. It's not only great as is, it's an awesome base for chicken parmesan if you simply add a bit of marinara sauce and some low-fat mozzarella cheese. I also love chopping it up on salads drizzled with a bit of wing sauce (just be careful of the sodium on that one). Oh, and in case you are wondering, panko is a Japanese breadcrumb that is super crispy. It?s ideal for "fried" chicken or other faux fried foods because you do'?t need to add oil to achieve perfectly crisp breading If you can?t find panko, a second choice is crushed up Light Rye Wasa CrispbreadŽ, though I definitely prefer the panko.

Recipe Ingredients for Winning ?Fried? Chicken

1 Olive oil spray
3 tablespoons plain yogurt, fat free
4 basil leaves
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano leaves
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 pinch of salt
1 pinch of ground black pepper
24 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 tablespoons Breadcrumbs, divided
1 ounce Mustard, to taste (optional)

Recipe Directions for Winning ?Fried? Chicken

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly mist a small nonstick baking sheet with oil spray.

  2. In a medium shallow bowl, combine the yogurt, basil, oregano, thyme, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir to mix well.

  3. Place 2 tablespoons of the breadcrumbs in another medium shallow bowl. Set next to the yogurt mixture. Dip 1 breast into the yogurt mixture to coat. Transfer to the breadcrumbs to coat evenly. Place it on the prepared baking sheet. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs to the breadcrumb bowl. Repeat the procedure with the second breast. Place, not touching the other breast, on the baking sheet.

  4. Bake for 10 minutes. Flip the chicken and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until no longer pink. Serve immediately with mustard or marinara sauce to taste on the side, if desired.
