For the mango dip:
200ml low fat natural yogurt

Place the chicken in a bowl along with the soy sauce, olive oil and chopped herbs.

Cover and place in the fridge overnight to marinate.
Pre-heat oven to 200°C.
Remove the marinated chicken from the fridge.
Add breadcrumbs and mix well until the chicken is evenly coated.
Arrange the chicken on an oven tray lined with baking parchment.
