Garlic Oven Fried Chicken Breast

by Erika Nicole Kendall

1/3 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons minced garlic (can use more or less)
2 teaspoons garlic powder, divided (garlic lovers can use more)
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt (or can use white salt)
3/4 cup seasoned dry bread crumb (seasoned or plain)
1/2 cup finely grated cheddar cheese
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper (or to taste)
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter an 11 x 7-inch pan (if using more than 4 breasts use a larger pan). In a bowl, combine melted butter with fresh minced garlic, 1 teaspoon garlic powder and salt. In another bowl, combine the dry breadcrumbs with 1/2 cup finely grated cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese 1 teaspoon garlic powder and coarse ground black pepper. Dip chicken in butter mixture; then in crumb mixture. Place in prepared pan and bake uncovered for 35-45 minutes or until cooked through, larger breasts may take more time (placing the chicken on a rack in a pan will produce an extra crispy crust).

Have you tried this recipe with fish (like pollock or cod)?

Unfortunately, Monique, I have not… but short of cooking times and adjusting for the size of the fish, I don’t see why it couldn’t be done successfully. Give it a shot and let us know?

This meal literally saved my life! As a newly engaged woman I’ve really been trying to work on my cooking skills and the day I made this chicken my fiance couldn’t stop talking about how good it was! Thank you!
