Ingredients

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup or 1/4 pound), melted
  • 1 cup dried bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese (or 2/3 cup if you are using a Microplane zester)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • A large pinch of Italian seasoning (herb mix)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 lbs of skinless, boneless, chicken meat, cut into pieces no larger than 2x2 inches

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • In a bowl, combine the minced garlic with the melted butter.
  • In another bowl mix together the bread crumbs, Parmesan, parsley, salt, garlic salt, Italian seasoning, and pepper.
  • Dip chicken pieces into garlic butter, then into crumb mixture to coat.
  • Place coated chicken pieces on to a 9x13 baking dish. Try to leave a little room between each piece.
  • Drizzle with remaining garlic butter and bake uncovered 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.
  • Note that the chicken will get much more browned on the bottom side than on the top.
  • Serves 4-6.
