Greek Yogurt Parmesan Chicken

Well, once again the cobwebs have started taking over this blog space of mine.  As much as I love blogging and the community that comes along with it, ever since having Miss Bonnie Ann I have (obviously) found it incredibly difficult to stay current with blogging – both reading others and writing my own.  But I can get better – and I will!
So here I am with a recipe I tried last night and let’s just say it fit in perfectly to my definition of a perfect meal: easy, cheap, healthy and made with ingredients I already have.  As much as I’d love to always have elaborate meals planned and executed, I rarely do.  So easy and healthy are my simple requirements (and, of course, we have to like what we’re eating!)
Greek Yogurt Chicken

The other day before I went to the grocery store I was checking out my fridge and cupboards to take stock of what I had and what I needed to buy.  When I looked in the door I saw the Greek Yogurt that I had bought and for some reason put in the door (and which I quickly forgot about every buying since I never put the Greek Yogurt in the door).  Luckily it wasn’t at its expiration date, but it was getting close.  So what did I do?  Decided to make dinner with it!  A while ago I made Greek Apple Tunafish Sandwiches, but Jake is not a fan of tuna so I knew I had to come up with something else.  Pinterest to the rescue!
Here’s what I came up with – I promise that the picture doesn’t do it justice – it was tasty, super quick and simple and I didn’t have to buy anything special for it!
Win-win-win (and the wins continue!)  This is a super creamy and tastefully rich chicken dish without being loaded with butter or cream – and if you or someone in your family has a gluten allergy or sensitivity it’s perfect!

Healthy Parmesan Chicken

Note: Be sure to use a casserole or other dish with raised sides.  Putting the chicken on just a baking sheet would end in a huge mess!  The topping melts and when you dish it up, the chicken is sitting in a large amount of liquid - if you used just a cookie sheet this liquid would be loose in your oven - so not a good thing!

Does this sound like something you'd like to try?  I'd love to hear your opinion if you do!
