Chicken, Diabetic

“Fried” Chicken


  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground thyme
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
  • 10 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts


Preheat oven to 350F and prepare a baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Trim the fat off of the chicken, cut into 4 equal pieces and marinade them in the yogurt for several minutes. In a bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, paprika, thyme, and garlic. Dredge the chicken in the crumb mixture and arrange on the prepared pan. Bake for 20 minutes; watch closely to ensure that the chicken “crust” does not burn.

 Additional Information

If you want to give the chicken a deep golden color, place the pan under a broiler for the last 5 minutes of cooking.
