This was really terrific. I altered it to four boneless, skinless breasts. I cut all the coating ingredients in half except for the garlic and the parmesan cheese (I grate mine fresh, and recommend that!). Since I had cut down the butter, I brushed the garlic butter onto the chicken with a pastry brush rather than dipping the chicken into the butter. There was a ton of coating mix leftover, so after I drizzled the leftover garlic butter onto the chicken as recommended, I then dumped some of the remaining coating on top of the chicken when it was already in the pan. I baked it for about 40 minutes. It was really fantastic - made the whole house smell delicious - it was moist and really flavorful. My kids both loved it. I will definitely make this again. I can only imagine that if it is made with the skin on the chicken, it is probably incredible. But it worked extremely well prepared as above.


Wonderful recipe! I used boneless chicken breasts that I pounded down thin. For the bread crumbs I used Italian style and added a mxiture of spices (Italian seasoning, crushed rosemary, oregano, basil) along with the Parmesan cheese, parsley, salt and pepper basically eyeballing everything. 1/4 pound of butter is 1/2 cup and I added a bit more garlic than called for to that as I love garlic. I baked my chicken at 375 for 35 minutes and it was done perfectly - moist and juicy, not dry at all with a wonderful crispy coating.


My family loved this chicken. The only thing I did differently from the recipe is I set the oven to 375 degrees, I put the breasts in about 15 minutes before the other pieces so the smaller pieces didn't get overdone and I used a jelly roll pan instead of a 13 X 9 pan to promote crispiness. The chicken was VERY crispy and juicy. Loved it!!
