Crispy yogurt chicken

So tonight i made dinner for my parents and 3/5ths of my siblings...the other two are still off at college. I made ThePioneerWoman's Crispy Yogurt Chicken, but i didn't have any myself...i stayed in the basement working on sorting moms scrapbooking papers and "stuff".

However! Mom doesn't buy plain yogurt, and forgot while grocery shopping, so i used sour cream instead (lite) and it worked well! i'm sure it tasted fine too.

  • 2 cups Plain, Unflavored Yogurt
  • 2 cloves (to 3 Cloves) Garlic
  • Parsley, To Taste
  • 1 whole (juice Of) Lemon (which is ~2TBSP)
  • Chicken Legs (or Thighs, Etc.) (i used chicken breasts)
  • Salt To Taste
  • 2 cups Panko Bread Crumbs (please use panko...its about 2.00 at the grocery store, so not that bad...they're yummy.)
  • Butter (1 Pat For Each Piece Of Chicken)

Preparation Instructions

Pour yogurt into a mixing bowl. Peel and mince garlic; add garlic to the yogurt. Chop up a small amount of fresh parsley and add it to the yogurt. Add lemon juice. Mix together to combine.

Rinse chicken and pat it dry. Sprinkle with (kosher) salt.

In another bowl, place the bread crumbs. Sprinkle with salt and stir lightly. (i also put some parsley in the panko :D)

Butter a baking dish. With a pair of tongs, place the chicken, one piece at a time into the yogurt mixture. Turn it over thoroughly to coat. Then roll the chicken in the Panko bread crumbs. Cover each piece thoroughly with bread crumbs and place in the baking dish.

Place a slice of butter over the large part of each chicken piece. Cover with foil and bake in a 350ยบ oven for 1 to 1 ¼ hours, removing the foil for the last 15 minutes of cooking. When the chicken is nice and golden, remove from the oven and enjoy!

Dad said its not something he'd put on his list of favorite food, but he did say it was good. :)

i didn't have any cuz i was busy, but i also thought it not to be something i should eat, missing a tooth...yes...the dentist stole a tooth on was decayed really far so it was either a root canal or an extraction, and i chose extraction.

so i've been on a semi-restricted soda for a bit, till it heals, which is sad :'(
