Garlic Chicken Recipe

Garlic Chicken
I love chicken, I love butter, and I love garlic. Do you? Well if you do you will definitely enjoy this recipe to the fullest. Today I have the ultimate chicken recipe for garlic butter lovers everywhere, a recipe for none other than garlic chicken breasts. This garlic chicken recipe took very little time (the oven did most of the work), was moist, had great flavor, and made a perfect Sunday dinner. I have a few recommendations for anyone making this… the cheddar cheese for the breading mixture needs to be grated finely. You want it to be well incorporated into the coating. I would suggest grating the cheese in a blender if you have one. Also, if the chicken breasts are real thick I would recommend pounding them a little with a mallet to even the thickness.  If you would like to add a little lemon flavor to the recipe just add a couple tablespoons of lemon juice to the garlic/butter mixture. You could also replace the cheddar cheese on top for mozzarella if you like. Enjoy.

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: Pre-heat the oven to 350, and grease a baking pan (big enough to fit your chicken breasts).
Step 2: In a bowl combine 1/3 cup melted butter, 2 tablespoons minced garlic, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, and ½ teaspoon seasoning salt.
Step 3: In a separate bowl combine ¾ cup breadcrumbs, ¾ cup grated cheddar cheese, ½ cup parmesan cheese, and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Dip the chicken in the garlic/butter mixture and then roll in the breadcrumb mixture until fully coated.
Step 4: Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes (If they are really thick, they might take a few extra minutes). Within the last 5 minutes of cooking top chicken breasts with shredded cheddar cheese.

    Your site gave the devil in my heart big power. The devil said to me. “Eat this thing which I was sweet, and seemed to be delicious” As a result, I lost a fight with the devil. I was dieting so… (T_T)

    This was amazing! What a wonderful combo of flavors. And it was incredibly juicy.

    I’ve cooked this recipe a few times (found it from a different source, but it’s the same one) and I have to say, for everyone that I’ve cooked it for there hasn’t been a single complaint! The chicken comes piping hot out of the oven, wonderfully juicy and just falls apart in your mouth. The shredded cheese, which melts and hardens into a delicious crunchy crust is a beautiful offset to the tenderness of the chicken.
