To Bake Chicken

  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Add a rack to the pan. You don't want the chicken directly on the baking sheet.
  • Grease the rack with non stick spray.
  • Remove excess marinade from the chicken - You want just a thin layer of yogurt marinade.
  • Place the chicken on the rack on your cookie sheet and bake for 15 -20 minutes (depending on thickness of chicken). Cook to 165F.
  • In the last 3 minutes of cooking, turn the broiler on to crisp up the chicken a bit.
  • Let cool. Slice and add to salad.
  • When ready to enjoy, drizzle sweet garlic sauce onto salad.


  • Remember to keep the sauce separate from the salad until time to enjoy!
  • This salad is best enjoyed within 3 days of prepping it.
