6 chicken legs, cut in half, skin removed
1 cup lo-fat yogurt
1/2 cup lo-cal mayo
3 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire
1/2-teaspoon ground thyme
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

2 green onions, sliced thinly, including tops
2 Tablespoon olive oil
2/3 -cup Parmesan cheese, grated

In a small bowl combine yogurt, mayo, mustard, Worcestershire, thyme, garlic powder, cayenne, salt and pepper, and green onions. Swish chicken in yogurt mixture, coating well. If you have time, let them sit in marinade for a couple of hours.
