The best recipes begin with these four simple words: saute garlic in butter. With those words in a recipe, there’s a good chance that it’s going to be a tasty meal!
My mom and I enjoy watching Rachael Ray in the afternoons together when we can and if ‘What’s For Dinner Tonight’ looks especially good, we’ll make our own version for supper. This recipe is originally from Rach’s show and we were definitely getting hungry watching her make it! It’s surprisingly simple to make and is absolutely delicious.
You will need:
5 Tablespoons of butter
2 garlic cloves, minced or grated
1 1/2 cups of breadcrumbs
1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
2 Tablespoons of parsley
1 Tablespoon of rosemary
1 Tablespoon of thyme
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Olive oil for drizzling
Salt and pepper
5-6 Tablespoons of Dijon mustard
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Now the magic words… saute garlic in butter. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat and add the minced garlic. Stir the garlic gently for a minute or two, then drizzle the mixture over the breadcrumbs and let it cool for a bit. Add the cheese and herbs (fresh if you have them, dried if you don’t) and combine.
Flatten the chicken with a meat hammer or heavy pan (just make sure you cover the chicken with plastic wrap first to contain the mess!). Place the chicken in a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Season both sides with salt and pepper and slather a bit of Dijon mustard on the top side of the chicken.
Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture over the chicken.
We served our chicken over fettucine alfredo with steamed asparagus as a side but you could serve it with baked potatoes or a nice big salad or roasted veggies… it would be tasty with just about anything!
