Tips

  • Because chicken breasts are white meat, they lack the fat needed to keep the meat moist. Adding yogurt helps add in moisture and flavor keeping the meat tender.
  • It’s important to cook chicken thoroughly to an internal temperature of at least 165° Fahrenheit. Using a meat thermometer will help ensure your chicken is cooked all the way through without over or under cooking.
  • Brining or marinating chicken beforehand is another easy way to keep chicken moist and flavorful.
  • Chicken breast is a blank canvas and tastes great with other fresh herbs and seasonings as well. Try it with chopped fresh rosemary, thyme, fresh lemon slices, paprika or onion powder.
  • Serve these chicken breasts alongside a fresh salad or mashed potatoes for a complete meal.
