1 1/2 pounds
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
seasoned dry bread crumbs
This is a great, easy and quick recipe, i would say definitely use olive oil with garlic to coat with the breadcrumbs, it's much easier and adds it own unique taste. One tip i would give is - Sear the meat in a heavy based pan to seal the breadcrumbs and then transfer the pan to the oven. Cook with butter in the pan and you get the best of both worlds. Also, add some mixed herbs to the Parmesan cheese to sprinkle over chicken, before you put it in the oven and it will form a beautiful crust. You can use this formula for any light meats, i've used turkey, pork and lamb all turned out great.
I have a similar recipe using olive oil that I have previously used. I wanted to see if the butter would inhance the flavor. I like the regular Garlic Chicken also off this site better. Infusing the oil with the garlic gives it more flavor. I didn't find this had much flavor at all. I tried flipping the chicken as other suggested, but found I then simply had chicken that was soggy on both sides. I won't make this again.
I had a package of boneless chicken breasts & a husband and 5 kids to feed. I had run out of ideas. I chose this recipe because it sounded easy & required only four ingredients. What a pleaser! The whole family loved it and I've placed it in my Recipe Box. Thanks K grecco, for a terrific, easy dinner dish. The only thing I did different was to set the oven higher, 450F and then I turned it down 5 mins into the cooking time. This is a keeper.
This recipe is delicious!! I added a 1/4 cup of parmesean cheese and it gave it an extra yummy flavor!!!
My husband liked this a lot and is already looking forward to having it again. I thought it was good but not outstanding. If you like chicken with a crispy breaded coating, this recipe is for you. We thought there was a nice but not overpowering garlic flavor. I only needed 1 cup of bread crumbs. I added about 1/8 cup of Parmesan cheese to the bread crumbs, but it could have used even more. I melted the butter with the chopped garlic in a small skillet, then turned it down to low and dipped the chicken directly into the butter then into the bread crumbs. I baked 4 rather large boneless skinless breasts for 45 minutes, which was plenty. 40 minutes would have probably been enough.
My daughter is allergic to butter, so I replaced with olive oil. No fresh garlic, so I used bottled minced garlic (3 tsps). I also added an Italian spice blend to my plain bread crumbs. Excellent!
Wonderful - I took others suggestions and added parmesian cheese to the butter mixture and doubled the garlic...
WOW - This came out GREAT! Hubby really liked it; this recipe is going into my personal cookbook.
Absolutely delicious. We are garlic lovers and this is an amazing recipe. I do brown the chicken in a pan first before putting it into the oven (to reduce the cooking time a bit). Thanks for the post.
