The Best Chicken Ever

This blog probably makes you think I cook a lot more than I do.  In reality, the hubbs does most of the cooking.  When I do bust out my apron, I’m very picky about my recipes.  I pick ones in my safe zone – usually marinated, always baked in liquid, rarely stray from chicken breast,  and lots of cheese (cheese makes everything taste good).

One day last week  I found this recipe for Garlic Chicken on Recipezaar.com.  Baking chicken without having it swimming in a pool of sauce makes me nervous, but this recipe was just too easy.  I followed it to a tee more or less — and it was quite possibly the most amazing dish I’ve ever made.  A sentiment adamantly seconded by S.  I served sauteed squash and grape tomatoes and salad on the side.  The chicken was flavorful, not too garlic-y, amazingly juicy, and, most importantly, VERY easy!   Leave work at 5:30pm, grocery store, cook, dinner at the table, TV on the couch by 7:30.  Easy cheesy…well, easy garlic chicken.  Give it a try!

Garlic Chicken

4 tsp. crushed garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup breadcrumbs (Italian if you’ve got ’em)
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt
pepper
Italian seasoning
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F
  2. Warm the garlic and olive oil to blend the flavors. In a separate dish, combine the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Dip the chicken breasts in the olive oil and garlic mixture, then into the bread crumb mixture. Place in a shallow baking dish.
  3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until juices run clear.
