This is a great, easy and quick recipe, i would say definitely use olive oil with garlic to coat with the breadcrumbs, it's much easier and adds it own unique taste. One tip i would give is - Sear the meat in a heavy based pan to seal the breadcrumbs and then transfer the pan to the oven. Cook with butter in the pan and you get the best of both worlds. Also, add some mixed herbs to the Parmesan cheese to sprinkle over chicken, before you put it in the oven and it will form a beautiful crust. You can use this formula for any light meats, i've used turkey, pork and lamb all turned out great.


I had a package of boneless chicken breasts & a husband and 5 kids to feed. I had run out of ideas. I chose this recipe because it sounded easy & required only four ingredients. What a pleaser! The whole family loved it and I've placed it in my Recipe Box. Thanks K grecco, for a terrific, easy dinner dish. The only thing I did different was to set the oven higher, 450F and then I turned it down 5 mins into the cooking time. This is a keeper.


This recipe is delicious!! I added a 1/4 cup of parmesean cheese and it gave it an extra yummy flavor!!!
