  • Author: Meghan Yager
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


This creamy parmesan chicken bake is filled with some of the best flavors, the perfect combination of cheese, garlic, herbs, and poultry.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (approx. 4 lbs total weight)
  • 2 teaspoons freshly chopped basil (or 1 teaspoon dried)
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (approx. 3 oz), divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  2. Trim fat off the chicken breasts, if needed. Place in a 3-quart baking dish, arranging them fairly close together.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together basil, thyme, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle mixture evenly over chicken breasts.
  4. In a separate small bowl, stir together Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, and minced garlic.
  5. Spread Greek yogurt mixture evenly over chicken, covering each piece entirely.
  6. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top of the yogurt.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes, or until chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165˚F.
  8. Serve warm with your choice of sides.
