As always, you can change the recipe, or parts of it, to suit your taste. For example, I use 3 large cloves of chopped garlic, but if you are a garlic lover, you can always add more. The same applies to the parmesan cheese. I use the grated Parmesan that you can buy in the tub, but you can use fresh parmesan as well. I don't use it for the simple reason that grated Parmesan never mixes well but the bread crumbs. Speaking of the breadcrumbs, I use Italian bread crumbs in the recipe simply because I like the spicing on them, but you can use panko what are the breadcrumbs of your choice.
Believe me, this recipe is simply delightful and your family and friends will love it. As a matter of fact, they will be begging you for the recipe.
Give our simple and easy garlic chicken a try and, as always, drop us a line and let us know what you think.
Heat your oven to 375 degrees F or 190 C.
Add the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper to a mixing bowl. Whisk until well combined.
Pour the olive oil into a pan over low heat and add in the chopped garlic. Stir and heat for about 2 minutes or until fragrant. Turn off heat.
Roll the chicken breast in the olive oil and garlic mixture.
Dredge the chicken in the bread crumb mixture until each side is completely coated. Set them aside on a baking tray lined with aluminum foil. I always spray the foil with baking spray to ensure the breasts do not stick. Drizzle any remaining olive oil and garlic over the breasts.
Place them in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes depending on the thickness of the meat.
Garnish with parsley and serve with a nice garden salad.
Enjoy your simple and easy garlic chicken.
