Melt in Your Mouth Chicken

Melt in Your Mouth Chicken

So there’s this pin that’s becoming really prevalent on pinterest called Melt in Your Mouth Chicken.  It boasts that it is “So much better than fried chicken!!!”  And it looks like this:

Now, you’ll probably notice right away that the chicken in my picture up top does not really look the same as the one on the pinterest pin.  This worried me when I pulled it out of the oven.  My thought was, “uhhh ok.  Did I do something wrong? I really hope it still tastes ok.”

Well, never fear dear readers.  This chicken, although it doesn’t look like the picture, still tasted great!  It was full of flavor and deliciously juicy and tender.  What’s even better is that this is a low fat, low cal recipe too!  It’s nice to find a recipe that’s filling and full of flavor, without being full of fat.  And the thing that you’ll probably love about this dish more than anything else?  3 steps. Boom.  Mix, Spread, Bake.  It’s that simple.  Normal Cooking at it’s best.

Side note: If you are looking for a good, healthy substitute to fried chicken, I’m not sure this is what you’re looking for.  It was delicious, but it didn’t taste at all like fried chicken.

  1. 1 1/2 tsp seasoning salt to a cup of yogurt seems like a huge amount of salt in this. Did you use all the sauce over the chicken, or did you just lightly coat the chicken? I’m pretty much a salt-a-holic…and this just seems like too much salt even for me!

    • I think if it were regular salt, it’d be too much, but the seasoning salt was a good amount I am definitely not a salt-a-holic too so it wasn’t overpowering I did use all the sauce, and it was not super globbed on the chicken, but it wasn’t spread thin either Just moderate.

      Grace, unfortunately I don’t know the nutrition info on this particular dish. But based on the ingredients, there’s nothing really high in calories or fat so it’s still a pretty healthy dish!

      Freshly grated! I used to always use the powdery kind until I finally decided to see if the fresh stuff makes a difference, and man it REALLY does!

  2. Yes use fresh grated Parmesan some of the pre-grated stuff actually has a saw dust like ingredient added to keep it from packing down, ick no thanks, FRESH is always good

  3. Hi there, just saw the recipe for “Melt- in- Your- Mouth- Chicken” looks delicious and can’t wait to try it. But I do have a question, is there something else I can use instead of the Greek Yogurt? I was thinking maybe sour cream, have you tried it with sour cream or will it work as a substitute for the yogurt? Thanks so much for any help you can give me :). But if the sour cream will not work I guess I will try the yogurt, haha, cause I really want to make this .
    Thanks again.

      Sour cream and greek yogurt are very similar, so the substitute should work fine! If you give it a try, let us know how it is!

      I believe it would work just fine with legs! I’m not sure what the difference in cook time would be though.
