"I tried this recipe that my friend told me about, and it was so delicious, I just had to share it. This is what Carol at Allrecipes had to say about her recipe. "Submerge chicken in a strong garlic-olive oil infusion, then coat with Parmesan and bread crumbs for a quick and sublime baked chicken." I have to agree with her, it only has 5 ingredients, but the flavor is definitely there! You will love this recipe and it goes so well with just about any sides. Since making it the first time I had it with mashed potatoes one night with a salad, another time with potato salad and coleslaw, and this last time with pasta with alfredo sauce. Delicious with just about anything!"

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

Step 2

Heat olive oil and garlic in a small saucepan over low heat until warmed, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer garlic and oil to a shallow bowl.

Step 3

Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese in a separate shallow bowl.

Step 4

Dip chicken breasts in the olive oil-garlic mixture using tongs; transfer to bread crumb mixture and turn to evenly coat. Transfer coated chicken to a shallow baking dish.

Step 5

Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink and juices run clear, 30 to 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

What a tasty dish...I used chicken tenderloins and cut the recipe in half...I cooked them 10 minutes on each side and they came out perfect...this is a keeper...made for "Bill Board" tag game...

Excellent chicken! I will be putting this recipe into my best-of-the-best file. It is super easy and it's packed with flavor. I absolutley loved the flavor from the garlic oil. I also loved the fact that you can pop it in the oven. I do a similar chicken recipe (without the garlic oil) that I pan fry. We love it, but it's an all hands-on type of recipe. This is perfect. The only change I'll need to make next time is to lessen the cook time - maybe checking it at 15-20 minutes. This is probably because I was only cooking two smaller chicken breasts. Thank you!

Delicious moist and juicy chicken recipe. I changed it a bit as I used chicken thighs bone-in which I baked at 400 degrees F for 45 minutes. Otherwise I made the recipe as directed. We loved the flavor that the garlic and seasoned bread crumbs added to the chicken.Made for Billboard Tag.
