He Cooks Too: Crunchy Garlic Chicken

Matt made dinner.
And it was AMAZING.
I watched...and practiced with my camera.

Crunchy Garlic Chicken {Source}


Ingredients: 


1/4
cup butter or margarine, melted
2
tablespoons milk
1
tablespoon chopped fresh chives or parsley...he used both
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon garlic powder
2
cups Whole Grain Total® cereal, crushed (1 cup)...he used cornflakes
3
tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/2
teaspoon paprika
6
boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 3/4 lb)

Step 1

Heat oven to 425°F. Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. In shallow dish, mix 2 tablespoons of the butter, the milk, chives, salt and garlic powder.


Step 2

In another shallow dish, mix crushed cereal, parsley and paprika. Dip chicken into milk mixture, then coat lightly and evenly with cereal mixture. Place in pan. Drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons butter.






Step 3

Bake uncovered 20 to 25 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).
It's getting hot in here...right?
Note: You can coat the chicken the night before and cook when you come home from work the next day!  It's a great time saver recipe!

As a side, Matt made french cut green beans and seasoned potatoes...yum! 


I tell you what... this dish did not last long!!  Chicken was juicy and seasoned perfectly!
