  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • Cooking spray

Method: 

Preheat oven to 375°F. Put chicken and yogurt in a medium bowl, toss to coat, cover and chill for 1 hour or overnight.

Grease a large baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside. Put corn flakes, parsley, salt and pepper into a large, resealable plastic bag and shake to combine. Working with a few pieces at a time, drop chicken into bag, seal and shake to coat; transfer chicken to prepared baking sheet as done.

Bake chicken until crunchy on the outside and cooked through, about 25 minutes. Serve with honey mustard on the side for dipping.
