Yogurt Chicken

This was delicious! I used Goat Yogurt for added flavor. Don't use too much melted butter/margarine it will make the dish soggy.

How to Make Yogurt Chicken


  • 1Preheat your oven to 375'F.
  • 2If using corn flakes, process to a fine crumb. Stir in the cheese, onion, garlic powder, seasoned salt, oregano, thyme and pepper.
  • 3Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Coat with the yogurt and roll in the crumb mixture.
  • 4Place meaty side up on a lightly greased 15x10x1 inch pan. Drizzle with the butter and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
  • 5Bake uncovered in your preheated oven for 45-55 Minutes. It only took mine 37 minutes to cook this as I have a very hot oven. Check the chicken at the 35 minute mark to see if it's done. You don't want to dry it out.
  • 6You can also put the crumb mixture into a large zip lock bag and drop one piece at a time of the yogurt covered chicken. Place of the baking pan and drizzle with the butter and sesame seeds.
  • 7Either way you do this it's quite messy, but is worth the effort. Enjoy!
