Skinny Parmesan Crusted Chicken

Skinny Parmesan Baked Chicken is a lightened-up version of Parmesan chicken. This easy chicken recipe is baked in the oven and is extra flavorful and juicy with a crunchy topping.

I did a sponsored post for Hellmann’s a few weeks ago. Part of the “assignment” was to browse their recipes and find one to feature. I used their chicken salad recipe for the post, but I also came across a very yummy-looking recipe for Parmesan Crusted Chicken.

I made an easy substitution to make the dish lighter and the entire family really enjoyed the dish.

To lighten up the recipe, I replaced most of the mayo with yogurt and used half the amount of bread crumbs. You would never know this is a lightened-up version unless I told you!

Give it a try!
