Garlic Chicken from Gooseberry Patch

We had the garlic chicken recipe from one of my Gooseberry Patch cookbooks. And this is WAY to good to keep to myself. It was very easy, looks like you spent a long time in the kitchen and is also easy to double or triple to serve more than 4 people.

Here’s the recipe from the Gooseberry Patch: 5 ingredients or less. (note: they have the cookbook divided by the four seasons, this is an autumn main dish which I thought would be appropriate!).

4 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 c. olive oil
1/2 c. garlic herb Parmesan cheese (I freshly shredded Parmesan Reggiano cheese, yummy- no seasoned cheese for me)
1/2 c. seasoned bread crumbs (I could not find the bread crumbs at the store- I’m sure they exist- so I crushed seasoned croutons that I can now use on salads!)
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (the ones I get are gigantic so I cut two in half instead)

Mix garlic with olive oil; place in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 3 minutes; set aside. Combine Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs together; place in a shallow dish. Dip chicken in garlic mixture; coat with bread crumb mixture. Place in an ungreased 13×9 baking pan; bake at 425 degrees fro 35 minutes or until juices run clear when chicken is pierced with a fork. Serves 4.

This really only took me less than a half hour to prepare! It was longer to defrost the chicken then do anything else, so a great meal to throw together. I made garlic mashed potatoes and that was a great complement to the garlic in the chicken.

This is staying on our menu rotation for sure!
