    About this recipe: Plain yoghurt is the key to this easy recipe. It acts as a tenderiser and makes the chicken breasts exceptionally moist. Chicken breasts are coated in plain yoghurt, then dredged in breadcrumbs and baked in the oven until crunchy.

    Serves: 5 

    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
    • 175g plain low-fat yoghurt
    • 1 lemon, juiced
    • 120g dried breadcrumbs, seasoned
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules
    • salt to taste
    • 50g butter
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Place yoghurt in a small bowl and stir until creamy smooth. Add lemon and stir together. (Note: If you do not stir the yoghurt first, the lemon juice will make it curdle.) In a separate shallow dish or bowl combine the breadcrumbs, garlic granules and salt to taste; mix together.
    3. In a 23x33cm or similar sized baking dish place a knob of butter for each chicken breast. Dip each breast in the lemon-yoghurt mixture, then in the breadcrumb mixture (coating completely but not heavily).
    4. Place coated chicken in the baking dish and top each breast with a knob of butter. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
