This recipe is not only healthy, but you don’t have to tend to it the entire time. Just prep it then you can throw it in the oven and walk away.

The yogurt helps to keep the chicken moist and tender while adding a tangy flavor that pairs perfectly with the spices and seasonings. I like combining garlic powder, paprika, and dried thyme, but you can follow the original recipe and add more seasoning to your liking.

One of the best things about this recipe is how versatile it is. You can use any cut of chicken you like, from boneless, skinless breasts to drumsticks or thighs.

It’s also a great way to use any leftover yogurt in your fridge.

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

  2. Place chicken, yoghurt, red onion and tuscan seasoning in a large ziplock bag. Cover bag with a tea towel and using a meat tenderiser or base of frypan firmly hit each thigh 4-5 times to ensure the thickness is slightly more even and the marinate is slightly through the meat.

  3. Place chicken in a baking dish (no lining or oil needed) and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. You can save half the cheese and turn chicken after 15 minutes and sprinkle with remaining cheese so both sides are golden and crunchy.

  4. Bake in oven for 30 minutes, turning after 15 minutes and topping with remaining parmesan cheese if you wish.

  5. Serve with vegetables or salad.
