For the Marinade

  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbs Dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 5-8 chicken pieces

For the Crust

  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

1. Combine yogurt, mustard, garlic, pepper in a bowl, add mixture to a Ziploc bag. Add chicken pieces and turn to coat.

2. Zip the bag closed, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, up to 12 hours.

3. Preheat oven to 425°F

4. Line a rimmed baking/cookie sheet with foil, add a wire rack and spray with olive oil (lightly)
Blend together the flour, paprika, thyme, baking powder salt and pepper in a large Ziploc bag.

5. Take the chicken out of the marinade bag, shake off excess marinade, and add a piece to the flour bag.

6. Shake each piece until fully coated, then remove and shake off excess coating and place on an oiled rack set over a baking sheet.

7. Repeat with remaining chicken. Throw out the remaining marinade and flour mixture.

8. Lightly spray chicken with olive oil (using a mister) and bake until golden brown and when you get a reading of 160°F on a digital thermometer (test the thickest part of the meat).  It will take around 45-60 minute for thighs, around 30-35 for drumsticks

9. Remove from oven, and allow to cool a little.

10. Devour.
