Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, (about 1½ pounds of chicken)
  • 4 cups corn flakes, crushed, (you can also use breadcrumbs)
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons dried herbs, (use your preferred herbs)
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • ½ cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • cooking spray for chicken breasts
  • 1 ½ pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 2 cloves garlic

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 425˚F.
  • Line a large baking sheet with foil, grease with cooking spray, and set aside.
  • In a bowl combine crushed cornflakes, dried herbs, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper; mix to combine.
  • Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and stir.
  • In a separate mixing bowl combine yogurt, apple cider vinegar, and water. Whisk until combined.
  • Add chicken breasts to the yogurt mixture and toss until coated.
  • Dredge chicken breasts in the cornflake mixture, pressing with your fingers to adhere.Transfer coated chicken to previously prepared baking sheet.
  • Generously spray the chicken breasts with cooking spray.
  • Put in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  • In the meantime, in a mixing bowl combine the trimmed green beans, minced garlic, 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt, and pepper; toss to incorporate.
  • Pull out the baking sheet from the oven, flip over the chicken breasts, and make room for the green beans. Add green beans to the baking sheet.
  • Continue to bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Chicken is done when internal temperature registers at 165˚F. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the chicken breasts. Please use an Instant Read Meat Thermometer to check for doneness.
  • If the green beans are done before the chicken; remove the beans from the sheet pan and continue to cook the chicken.
  • Let chicken rest for 5 to 8 minutes, before cutting.
