Crispy panko bread crumbs and pecans coat chicken breasts that are first dipped in yogurt--they’re cooked until crispy and golden.

Ingredients

3
to 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 lb)
3/4
cup Progresso™ Italian style panko crispy bread crumbs
1/2
cup chopped pecans
2
tablespoons chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
1
container (6 oz) Greek Fat Free plain yogurt
3
tablespoons olive oil or butter

Directions

  • 1 Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/2 inch thick.
  • 2 In shallow dish, mix bread crumbs, pecans and parsley. In another shallow dish, place yogurt. Dip chicken into yogurt, then coat with crumb mixture.
  • 3 In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat until hot. Cook chicken in oil 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in center and coating is golden brown.

Expert Tips

You can substitute chopped walnuts or almonds for the pecans.

To complete the meal, serve with mashed potatoes and fresh broccoli with lemon-pepper seasoning and breadsticks.
