This is a garlic lover's dream come true! Chicken is very tender and quiet tasty. I took the suggestions of some of the reviewers by cutting back on the bread crumbs to 1/2cup. Used 3/4 cup of cheese and cut the salt to 1/4 tsp. Also used 2 eggs yolks and Italian style bread crumbs and 2lbs. of boneless, skinless chicken. We are a family of 4 and the chicken disappeared very quickly with requests to make it again soon! Thank you Amy!

Very simple and easy to make! I ended up with a lot of extra crumb mixture though. Next time I would cut them back to no more than 3/4 C each. I topped the chicken with spaghetti and a red sauce to add to the flavoring.

I agree this was very moist & not dried out. Make sure you do melt butter on bottom of glass dish, It will stick & burn! Other than that. It was gr8!

Great flavor! I used 3 large breasts, pounded just a bit, 3 yolks & let them marinade 7 hours in a ziploc. I only added about a tsp of garlic powder to my bread crumbs. I used panko crumbs (highly recommend!) & I added some italian seasonings in when the other seasonings. I did like others & just shook my chicken up in a big ziploc w/ the crumbs. I only added a couple of pinches of salt (parmesan can be salty enough). I didn't melt the butter in the pan, instead I used a liberal amount of butter flavor Pam. The chicken was tender & juicy & loaded w/ garlicky flavor. I served it w/ Roasted Asparagus and Yellow Pepper Salad, fresh corn on the cob (nuked) & Pavlova for dessert.

This is awesome. My whole family, husband and 2 boys (6 & 2), loved it. I had to adapt a bit. I only had chicken tenders, so I used 10. I also used 2 egg yolks and 2 tsp. of minced garlic (equiv. to 4 garlic cloves). I put yolks and garlic in large ziploc bag, then added chicken to bag. Mixed it all up and put in fridge for about 7 hours. Also, I only used half of the bread crumbs for the dry mix. After I had all of the chicken coated, I sprinkled a little more parmesean cheese on top. Since I used tenders, I cooked it for 20 minutes at 400. Very juicy and wonderful. I cannot wait to make this one again!

Oh Man, that was THE BEST chicken I've ever cooked! Who ever gave this recipe a poor rating must have done something really wrong. 6 cloves of garlic was perfect, but one egg yolk wasn't enough for me. I cooked 5 pieces of chicken so I mixed 3 egg yolks with 6 cloves and garlic and that was plenty to marinate the chicken. There really wasn't much egg yolk mixture left after marinating overnight so I couldn't get the bread crumbs to stick that well but it was still fabulous! I cut the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese in half and still had plenty. I used the whole tablespoon of parsley but I changed up the rest of the spices a little. I used one tablespoon total with a little of all these spices: garlic salt, garlic powder, garlic and herb seasoning, cayenne pepper, red pepper, and ground black pepper. This tasted perfect to me. I think that you can pretty much salt and season this dish according to your own particular taste.

If we could give this recipe six stars we would - Kids and Adults both love this tender chicken delite! I like to cut the chicken breast into bite-sized pieces *before* marinating. After a mere 4 hours in the egg/garlic mixture, the chicken is SO tender and the bite-sized pieces are perfect for my kids. Also noteworthy is that the dish can be a bit salty if you add the recommended salt, use salted butter, and seasoned breadcrumbs. We prefer it with no salt added, unsalted butter, and unseasoned bread crumbs. Great with an Italian themed dinner (ie pasta with tomato sauce, salad, and garlic bread).

I thought this recipe was delicious. We are big garlic fans and this really did hit the spot. I did read the reviews before making and used italian bread crumbs and cut down the amount to a bit more than 1/4 cup, and used more than one egg yolk. I did also have to cook a bit longer than the recipe called for, but still delicious. This is great because most if, not all, ingredients you will have on hand. Thank you for such a great recipe.
