Wow. That’s all I can say, because other than ‘Wow’, I’m at a loss for words. This is some of the best chicken I’ve ever had. Ever.
I totally ignored PDub’s suggestion of less garlic (love me some garlic) and used a full 2 cloves. It was delicious… I can totally see myself making this my go-to chicken! Easy, fast, and SO tasty – absolutely perfect!!
Crispy Yogurt Chicken
Source: The Pioneer Woman
Chicken - drumsticks, tenderloins, chicken breasts, etc.
2 c Plain, Unflavored Yogurt
2 cloves minced garlic
Handful, minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
Juice from 1 lemon
Panko Bread Crumbs
Mix yogurt, garlic, parsley and lemon juice until combined. Thoroughly rinse chicken and salt well. Into another bowl, pour 2 c of bread crumbs and salt those, as well (you may need more bread crumbs as you go along). Butter (or oil) a small-medium baking dish and set aside. Begin by dipping chicken into yogurt mixture, then into the bread crumbs, making sure to evenly coat each piece. Lay chicken in baking dish, (place a tbsp of butter on each piece), then cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour, then remove foil and bake for another 15-20 minutes, depending on the type of chicken you use (drumsticks, tenderloins, etc.), until the pieces are golden brown.
