  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, strained
  • 1 teaspoon dried mustard
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh dill (or 1/2 teaspoon dried)
  • 1 tablespoon crushed garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups unseasoned bread crumbs

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Place the yogurt in a mixing bowl and stir in the lemon juice, mustard, paprika, dill, garlic, thyme, and salt and pepper. Dip the chicken in the yogurt then place in a separate bowl filled with bread crumbs, making sure that both sides are well coated. Place in a baking dish.

Cook for 50 minutes, or until the chicken breasts are golden brown.
