Easy Homemade Garlic Chicken

This recipe was super easy. The chicken has a very nice garlic smell while cooking. The taste is mild and not over powering. If you are looking for a strong garlic taste this is not it. However, since I was cooking for a one year old and a picky husband the taste was perfect.
The recipe is super fast, taking only a few minutes to warm the oil and roll the chicken in the coating.

The only thing I did wrong was using chicken breast tenders rather than chicken breasts. I don’t recommend this. You have to decrease the cooking time to prevent the chicken from drying out and the coating does not get crispy. The chicken was just starting to get crispy when I had to remove it from the oven. I think it would have been even better if I had been able to cook it at least another 15 minutes.

“Simple to make, just dip and bake! Garlicky goodness in a breaded chicken dish. Yum!”


1/4 cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Heat olive oil and garlic in a small saucepan over low heat until warmed, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer garlic and oil to a shallow bowl.
Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese in a separate shallow bowl.
Dip chicken breasts in the olive oil-garlic mixture using tongs; transfer to bread crumb mixture and turn to evenly coat. Transfer coated chicken to a shallow baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink and juices run clear, 30 to 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
