Greek Yogurt Crispy Chicken

Let me start off by saying 1. this recipe only has 4 ingredients (that are common household ingredients) and 2. Its under 300 calories. I don't even need to go on, that right there makes this dish a winner.

I've had the usual baked chicken with either ranch or cream of chicken soup and cheese but those just aren't helping my body get swimsuit ready, so I made my own version and it is nothing short of delicious! Sometimes I like to think I'm on chopped and have to combine what little ingredients I have to make a delicious meal, which resulted in my greek yogurt chicken dish. I think the thing that makes this dish is the multi-grain tortilla chip coating. Have you tried those? We love them and they are SO much better for you than regular chips or crackers. It made the perfect crispy and healthier crust that I was looking for.
