  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt the butter with the garlic in a saucepan over medium heat. When the butter starts to bubble, remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly. Stir the breadcrumbs together with the Parmesan cheese, thyme, basil, oregano, pepper, and salt in a bowl. Dip the chicken breasts in the butter, then press into the seasoned bread crumbs. Place the chicken into a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken is golden brown and no longer pink in the center, 50 to 55 minutes.

Very tasty. I poured the extra butter and garlic into the baking dish, and it made the edges super crispy and yummy. My husband enjoyed so much, he had left-overs for breakfast.

I'm sorry but I didn't care for this dish. Maybe if I had cut down some of the basil, oregano and thyme I might have liked it better. Seems like those spices overpowered the chicken. I am going to get some marinara sauce and mix the chicken with it and try to salvage some kind of meal from it. I hate to throw food away.Maybe I am just not used to those spices.

Amazing! I love it. I added some fresh lemon juice and white wine to the butter/garlic misture and poured the remaining juice to the pan as well. Also, I only cooked it for 45 minutes and it came out perfect!

This was a last minute meal on one of those "What are we going to have for dinner?" nights. What a treat! I had to adapt the recipe with ingredients I had on hand and it was still delicious! Next time, I will plan ahead follow recipe exactly, but even using dried spices and no thyme my family loved it (italian breadcrumbs probably helped)! Note: cooking time was considerably less for our oven so adjust accordingly to maintain moisture in chicken.

Very yummy. The chicken was very moist. I poured the leftover butter and garlic into the baking pan and it soaked in really well.

Wow! What an easy and delicious recipe!! I didn't have fresh herbs but used the oregano and frozen basil cubes that I had. I also added a little rosemary. Next time, I will probably double the parmesan. Very good!!

This recipe was very good. The chicken stayed very moist while still having a crisp outside. My picky teenage son who is a diabetic even loved it!

This was easy to make. It tastes great and is extremely moist. I followed the recipe but added some rosemary. My two year old grandson - who's not overly fond of meat couldn't get enough.
