Yogurt Parmesan Baked Chicken

You can see that the link to this recipe is the WORLD'S Best Baked Chicken.  And it's pretty awesome.  I just want to reserve that title for a few more years until I'm really sure it's The One.  This recipe is insanely healthy, really tasty, fast and easy.

Yogurt Parmesan Baked Chicken
adapted from Dashing Dish

2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup plain low fat Greek yogurt
3 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried minced onions
1 tsp Mrs. Dash
Pinch salt, pepper, sugar (~1/8 tsp each)

Preheat oven to 375F.  Prepare a baking dish with cooking spray.  Place chicken breasts in a large plastic food storage bag and pound to about 1/2 inch.  Place them in the baking dish.  In a small bowl, fully mix the yogurt, parmesan, garlic, onions, Mrs. Dash, salt, pepper, sugar.  Spoon the yogurt mix over the chicken and cover evenly on the top and sides.  Bake 30 minutes, or until cooked through.

The original recipe calls for sweetener, but I don't mess with anything that's not actual sugar because I can't stand the flavor.  I also had a bad experience with aspertame, so I don't trust anything "diet."  Next time I'm going to swap out the Mrs. Dash for dried parsley, as suggested in the original recipe, too, and possibly the onion powder for dried.  It will definitely be going into regular rotation.
