Garlic Chicken

From Brown Family Favorites

2/3 c Italian style bread crumbs
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick margarine or butter
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts - cut to make even sized servings for even baking
2/3 c grated Parmesan - fresh is desired, but can works okay
1/8 tsp black pepper
4-5 garlic cloves, minced or pressed

Preheat oven to 350

Melt butter and saute garlic until just browned. Remove from heat and cool slightly - cool enough so you can touch it with fingers and not brand yourself permanently.

In shallow bowl, blend bread crumbs, cheese, salt and pepper

Line baking sheet with aluminim foil. Dip each chicken breast into butter mixture and then dredge in breadcrumbs to coat. Place on baking sheet. Mix remaining butter and crumbs together and top chicken with mix.

Bake 45-60 minutes until chicken juice runs clear.

NOTE: There is one technique I have read about but have yet to try, but I have heard the secret to cook, crispy baked chicken is pan frying on 1 side first (about 3-4 minutes over med-high heat) and flipping in skillet - place whole skillet in oven to finish baking. We'll see how this goes and I will report back later.
