Oven Baked Chicken

I just found the yummiest recipe today and altered it based on our own taste and ingredients we had on hand. Suffice to say, my husband thought this was the best chicken I have ever made. The crust is very yummy and the inside is very moist. Sorry the pix is so dark. I had no idea it’d turn out that bad.

Mandi’s Oven Baked Chicken
2/3 cup italian bread crumbs
2/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon ground sea salt
1/8 teaspoon (or more) fresh ground pepper
3lbs of chicken - I used boneless breasts
5 tablespoons butter
3 freshly minced garlic cloves

In small pan heat butter and garlic just till the butter is melted and turn off heat.

In a small bowl mix crumbs, cheese, salt and pepper.

Heat your oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or foil). Lightly spray with olive oil (or pam).

Next, dredge chicken first in butter and garlic mixture, then the crumbs. Make sure to pat crumb mixture into chicken so it stays on well. Lay chicken in a single layer on your baking sheet. When you have finished coating all your chicken, mix butter and crumb mixture and sprinkle on top of chicken.

Bake for approx. 1 hour or till chicken is done and juice runs clear.
