This is a garlic lover's dream come true! Chicken is very tender and quiet tasty. I took the suggestions of some of the reviewers by cutting back on the bread crumbs to 1/2cup. Used 3/4 cup of cheese and cut the salt to 1/4 tsp. Also used 2 eggs yolks and Italian style bread crumbs and 2lbs. of boneless, skinless chicken. We are a family of 4 and the chicken disappeared very quickly with requests to make it again soon! Thank you Amy!



I agree this was very moist & not dried out. Make sure you do melt butter on bottom of glass dish, It will stick & burn! Other than that. It was gr8!



Great flavor! I used 3 large breasts, pounded just a bit, 3 yolks & let them marinade 7 hours in a ziploc. I only added about a tsp of garlic powder to my bread crumbs. I used panko crumbs (highly recommend!) & I added some italian seasonings in when the other seasonings. I did like others & just shook my chicken up in a big ziploc w/ the crumbs. I only added a couple of pinches of salt (parmesan can be salty enough). I didn't melt the butter in the pan, instead I used a liberal amount of butter flavor Pam. The chicken was tender & juicy & loaded w/ garlicky flavor. I served it w/ Roasted Asparagus and Yellow Pepper Salad, fresh corn on the cob (nuked) & Pavlova for dessert.
