Method:

  1. Cut your chicken breast into tenders and set aside in a large bowl while you prepare your marinade
  2. Combine the parsley, chives, minced garlic, vinegar and brown sugar and blend until smooth in a NutriBullet or blender
  3. Pour the marinade over the chicken and leave in the fridge for a few hours (I left it overnight)
  4. Once the chicken has marinaded long enough preheat the over to 220g degrees before you prepare the coating
  5. In a baking dish (or a large shallow bowl) combine the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, chives and the greek yoghurt/skim milk mixture and stir until combined
  6. Coat each piece of the chicken thoroughly with the mixture and place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper
  7. Turn the oven down to 180degrees and bake the chicken for 20-25mins
  8. Allow to cool slightly before serving
  9. Enjoy!
