Easy Cheesy Garlic Baked Chicken

Cook Time40 mins

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts that are on the thinner side
  • 1 cup Italian bread crumbs you may also use Italian panko crumbs for a crispier texture
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 stick melted butter
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 8-10 cloves of minced garlic
  • garlic salt to taste
  • 1 cup of shredded cheese or more to taste. Any kind will do. My favorite is colby jack.
  • diced green onions to garnish you can also add chopped cooked bacon if you like

Instructions

  • Pour the melted butter into a good bit of minced garlic. I use about 8 large cloves. Pour in the olive oil. Microwave the mixture for 1 minute. Remove, and give it a quick stir with a fork. Microwave for another 30 seconds. This gets all that good garlic flavor infused with the butter & olive oil.
  • Mix together equal parts of Parmesan Cheese & Italian Bread Crumbs. Dip the chicken breasts in the garlic mixture, coating both sides thoroughly making sure to get a good bit of the minced garlic on each piece. Sprinkle with a little garlic salt & then dip into the dry mix, coating all sides well.
  • Place the chicken breasts into a baking dish. Bake in an oven preheated to 375 degrees for 35 minutes. Sprinkle a good bit of cheese on top of each chicken breast & then pop it back into the oven for just a couple minutes to melt the cheese on top. Garnish with diced green onions - you can also add chopped cooked bacon if you like.
