Healthy Crispy Chicken Breast
Add the chicken to a gallon size zip top bag. Pour the yogurt, salt, lemon juice and zest, 2 tablespoons garlic powder and ½ teaspoon paprika over the chicken. Toss well, cover and refrigerate 60 minutes or overnight.
Preheat the oven to 350degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
Add the crushed corn flake, flour, thyme, and a pinch of salt to a clean bowl. Stir to combine.
Remove each piece of chicken from the yoghurt, and dredge through the crumbs. Gently press to ensure the mix sticks! Place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all the chicken has been used. If you are going to freeze, do this now and then bag. Make sure not to crowd your pan, if necessary use two baking sheets. Transfer to the oven and bake for 25 minutes, then flip the chicken over and continue cooking another 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. If using thighs, you may need to cook the chicken a little longer.
Optional cripyness step (Not as healthy steps)
If you want it to taste a treat, make the hot butter for the last 15 minutes. Melt together the butter, maple syrup, and the rest of the paprika and garlic powder with a pinch of salt.
Brush the chicken generously with hot butter and return to the oven for those final 15 minutes.
Make your sandwich with a good butter bun, mayo (or Greek yogurt spread), bacon, tomato, red onion and lettuce. Enjoy!
