Servings: 4
Prep: 15 minutes
Marinate: 1 hour
Cook: 25 minutes


  • 1/2 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 pound (about 12 pieces) raw boneless skinless chicken breast tenders
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

You’ll need:

  • Medium bowl
  • Large sealable bag
  • Baking sheet
  • Non-stick spray
  • Wide bowl
  1. In a medium bowl, mix yogurt with paprika
  2. Place chicken tenders in a large sealable bag, top with seasoned yogurt, and thoroughly coat. Tightly seal, removing as much air as possible. Marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray
  4. In a wide bowl, mix breadcrumbs with remaining seasonings
  5. One at a time, coat chicken tenders with seasoned crumbs, first removing excess yogurt if needed
  6. Place on the baking sheet, and top with any remaining crumbs. Bake for 1 minutes
  7. Flip chicken. Bake until cooked through and crispy, 10-12 minutes. Dip your chicken strips in BBQ sauce, honey mustard, or ketchup and enjoy!
