Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
Serves: 4


4 (6 to 8 ounce) boneless and skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon onion powder
2 tablespoons fat-free cream cheese
2 tablespoons fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with non-stick spray. Set aside.
