Garlic Chicken (that the kids will eat)

Garlic ChickenThe other day I was looking to change up my typical chicken cutlet menu, and I stumbled across this yummy dish that was very easy and delicious. Bonus: my kids devoured their servings. I think we found a keeper.

The Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons crushed garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 or 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

The Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. In a saucepan, gently warm the olive oil and garlic
  3. In a shallow dish, combine breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese
  4. Cut your chicken breasts in half so you create double the number of thinner cutlets. This will help the chicken cook quickly and evenly.
  5. Dip chicken in garlic olive oil, then breadcrumb mixture.
  6. Place chicken cutlets on aluminum foil-lined baking sheet
  7. Bake 25 to 35 minutes until juices run clear. Time will vary depending on the thickness of your cutlets.

The chicken was incredibly moist and flavorful. I paired this entree with roasted broccoli (broccoli + olive oil + salt and pepper in a baking dish at the same time as the chicken) and mashed white potato/sweet potatoes (half and half).

We had one lonely cutlet leftover, so I took it to work and ate it with a piece of leftover lasagna … perfection!
