  • Melt the butter with the garlic in a saucepan over medium heat. When the butter starts to bubble, remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly. Stir the breadcrumbs together with the Parmesan cheese, thyme, basil, oregano, pepper, and salt in a bowl. Dip the chicken breasts in the butter, then press into the seasoned bread crumbs. Place the chicken into a 9x13 inch baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken is golden brown and no longer pink in the center, 50 to 55 minutes.

Amazing! I love it. I added some fresh lemon juice and white wine to the butter/garlic misture and poured the remaining juice to the pan as well. Also I only cooked it for 45 minutes and it came out perfect! Read More

I cook quite a bit and look for recipes that show a 4 or five star rating. Until this recipe I have batted 100%. I did not care for this one however at least as done by the written recipe. Read More

Very tasty. I poured the extra butter and garlic into the baking dish and it made the edges super crispy and yummy. My husband enjoyed so much he had left-overs for breakfast. Read More

This was a last minute meal on one of those "What are we going to have for dinner?" nights. What a treat! I had to adapt the recipe with ingredients I had on hand and it was still delicious! Next time I will plan ahead follow recipe exactly but even using dried spices and no thyme my family loved it (italian breadcrumbs probably helped)! Note: cooking time was considerably less for our oven so adjust accordingly to maintain moisture in chicken. Read More

Wow! What an easy and delicious recipe!! I didn't have fresh herbs but used the oregano and frozen basil cubes that I had. I also added a little rosemary. Next time I will probably double the parmesan. Very good!! Read More

Very yummy. The chicken was very moist. I poured the leftover butter and garlic into the baking pan and it soaked in really well. Read More

This recipe was very good. The chicken stayed very moist while still having a crisp outside. My picky teenage son who is a diabetic even loved it! Read More

This was easy to make. It tastes great and is extremely moist. I followed the recipe but added some rosemary. My two year old grandson - who's not overly fond of meat couldn't get enough. Read More

Delicious baked chicken recipe! Straight forward with really great results! The chicken was perfectly cooked - moist and fork tender! NOTE: I only had italian bread crumbs and dried herbs available but it worked out great! I cut down the the dried herbs to a teaspoon each. I did what previous reviewers suggested and poured the butter/garlic mixture into the baking dish as well. The only thing is that I would probably change out the bread crumb to parmesan cheese ration (I personally would have enjoyed more cheese vs. bread crumbs) but other than that it was still very tasty and I will be making it again!

This was SOOO good. I really didn't make any additions or revisions. I grow my own herbs so I threw in a tiny little bit of fresh rosemary with the others but that's all. I served it with a side of grilled asparagus and some sliced fresh tomatoes and avocadoes with an herb and rice vinager dressing. It was wonderful. I don't remember if it was the submitter or a reviewer who commented on how good the leftovers were in chicken salad. I made it for lunch today and it was hit! Read More
