Mmmmm. Fixed this for dinner tonight. I rock this dish, if I do say so myself.
Chris made this for me one of our very first dates almost (eek!) 11 years ago. It cost him a small fortune since being a single guy, he had NONE of the ingredients. Loved it and love him!
1 stick butter
1/2 t. garlic powder
1 c. bread crumbs (I use the Italian breadcrumbs)
2 T. parsley flakes
1 lb. chicken breasts (I use the thin sliced ones)
1/4 c. grated romano cheese (I use the parm/romano mix)
1 t. salt
1/2 t. thyme
1/2 t. pepper
Melt butter with garlic. Mix dry ingredients. Dip chicken in butter and roll in dry ingredients. Place in shallow baking dish (my Pampered Chef stoneware Deep Dish Baker is great for this!). Bake at 400* F for 1 hour (only takes about 30-40 minutes for the thin sliced breasts).
During the last 5 or so minutes, I cover the chicken with marinara and mozz cheese. So yummo! We serve with pasta.
