Bless your heart chicken

You may be wondering why I have named this chicken “Bless your heart chicken” the only reason why is because I made it while I was in Oklahoma visiting my grandma and that happens to be one of the phrases she says most often.

When I decided to cook for her I knew I had something to prove- even though I could have made mac n’ cheese and burned it and she would have told me it tasted great. So here it goes- “Bless your heart chicken”
  • 3-4 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp chicken seasoning, any flavor
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion flakes

Mix all of the ingredients together in a mixing bowl.

Coat the chicken with the mixture on both sides (I added a little more parmesan and salt and pepper on the top of each).

Wrap each breast in foil and bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes.

I think the reason this chicken was so juicy is because of the wrapping of the foil. Also after making this chicken I recommend pounding out the chicken a bit so you have thinner chicken breasts.
I served this up with some roasted corn and some steamed veggies and my grandma’s response? “Well bless your heart Shari this is good”
