  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp. salt and pepper
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup FAGE Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. powder
  • 3 Tbsp. Panko Breadcrumbs


  • In a large bowl season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Then add in the yogurt, lemon juice, minced garlic, olive oil and seasonings. Mix very well and then cover with plastic wrap and let the chicken marinate in the fridge for 4-6 hours.
  • Once chicken is ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and place chicken down in baking dish. Sprinkle the Panko breadcrumbs on top of chicken and you can also topĀ  each chicken breast with a lemon slice if you prefer prior to baking for a little extra lemon flavor.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
  • Serve warm with your favorite veggies and starch/whole grain!
