Cooking the chicken while wrapped in foil helps steam it so it stays moist and also keeps cleanup a breeze (no pots to wash out!). You only have to bake the chicken for 20 minutes, while broiling at the end results in a quick but beautiful, flavorful, even browning. Not a fan of dill? Try another spice for the mustard-yogurt sauce, such as curry or hot paprika.


Dijon mustard

¼ cup(s)

Plain fat free yogurt

¼ cup(s)

Garlic salt

½ tsp

Dried dill weed

1 Tbsp

Uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast

1 pound(s), four 4 oz pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine mustard, yogurt, garlic salt and dill. Place chicken on a plate; thoroughly coat chicken with mustard sauce.
  3. Tear off 4 sheets of aluminum foil that are large enough to wrap each chicken breast individually. Place a prepared chicken breast on each piece of foil; gather foil loosely around chicken and fold over to seal.
  4. Place foil packs on a nonstick baking sheet; bake for 20 minutes. Using oven mitts and keeping your face away from steam, open foil. Broil chicken on foil until lightly browned and cooked through, about 3 to 5 minutes more. Yields 1 piece of chicken per serving.
