Moist Garlic Chicken Recipe

I created this version of oven-baked chicken by modifying a recipe to match my family's love of garlic with chicken. Just coat the chicken, pop it into the oven and forget it. The crispy coating really stays on. My family always enjoys this flavorful main dish.—Jan Walls, Dover, Delaware
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • Dash pepper
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)

Thank you for printing such a wonderful recipe."

"To achieve a somewhat crunchy coating, I cooked the chicken, covered, for 25 min., then uncovered, for 12 min. Next time I'll try covered for 20 and uncovered for 10. -Lori in WI."

"I agree, this needs to be uncovered for probably the last 15 minutes to get it crispy... Otherwise, very tasty!!!"

"This was great! The next time I make it, I'll uncover it for the last few minutes of baking. It definitely wasn't soggy, but I think the coating would've crisped a bit better had I uncovered it."
