Orange Dreamy Chicken

You have seen how slave used mayonnaise to coat chicken breasts for baking. Now see what an orange flavored yogurt will do: Just as juicy, nice crunch and a hint of orange. In fact if you wish a stronger orange flavor, try orange jest added to the bread crumbs. Keep the side dish simple, perhaps a dark green for texture.

These juicy mounds of chicken will appear yellow with just a touch here and there of dark brown as a highlight. Baking fantastic chicken is so easy, just no excuse not to.

2 – 3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 5oz container of “Orange Whip” flavored Greek style yogurt
1 cup panko bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste.

Rinse and pat dry the chicken. Let sit for 15 minutes at room temperature.

Pre heat oven to 400. Set a rack over a lined baking sheet, spray with a quick burst of cooking spray. Since slave is also roasting some broccoli, another sheet pan was prepared.

Place the bread crumbs in a shallow bowl. Once the oven is up to temperature, spread one side of the chicken breast liberally with the yogurt using a pastry brush.
Place that side down into the breadcrumbs and “paint” the other side with yogurt. Flip that side down into the crumbs and place each breast on the cooking rack.
Give the tops a quick burst of the spray.

Bake until the chicken is golden and cooked through, 20 – 25 minutes.
Or until registers 155°F on an instant-read thermometer. This is just about the same length of time the broccoli takes so they will come out nicely.

Let the chicken rest 5 minutes before serving. (Don't skimp on this)

You will have such a succulent piece of chicken with just a “dream” of orange flavoring.

How about a dreamy type of song? This one has a special meaning for me.
