Parmesan Chicken

Using superthin chicken tenders for this kiddie favorite cuts the cooking time. And we coated them in low-fat yogurt to reduce the fat.

Time: 22 minutes

Parmesan Chicken

  • 1/3 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon each Italian herbs, paprika, and salt
  • 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 pound chicken tenders
  • 1/2 cup tomato bruschetta topping
  • Green salad (optional)
  • Garlic toast (optional)

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking pan with foil and spray with olive-oil cooking spray. In a shallow bowl, combine wheat germ, Parmesan, Italian herbs, paprika, and salt. Place yogurt in a separate shallow bowl.
  2. Dip each chicken tender in yogurt, shaking off any excess. Dredge in Parmesan mixture, patting to coat thoroughly. Place on prepared pan.
  3. Spray tenders with olive-oil cooking spray and cook in oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until cooked through. Serve with bruschetta topping and salad and garlic toast if desired. Makes 4 servings.
