Chicken Cutlets

I keep these baked chicken cutlets moist and juicy with a golden coating of bread crumbs, wheat germ and Parmesan cheese. If you like a crunchier coating, substitute cornflake crumbs. —Cathy Kierstead, Easton, Maine

    Great way to use plain yogurt. It doesn't make the chicken taste sour at all.

    Very moist and VERY tender! It was made for me but I've asked for the recipe and I will make this at home.
