Parmesan Baked Chicken

I am not kidding when I say “Try This!” This is soo good! You can’t stop eating it! AND, I don’t know if you can see, but the bottom of the chicken breast is just as crusty as the top! Yum!

6 chicken breasts
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp pepper
4 Tbsp. butter, melted
2/3 c. toasted bread crumbs, (I like Italian)
1/3 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Kosher salt

Combine melted butter and garlic powder in pie plate. Mix crumbs and cheese in a pie plate.
Pound the chicken to about 1/2 ” thickness. Brush chicken with garlic butter, then roll in bread crumb mixture. Place chicken in foil-lined baking dish/ cookie sheet.
(When baked on the foil-lined cookie sheet the bottom of the chicken crisps as well as the top! This is my favorite way to cook this.)
Drizzle with any remaining garlic butter. Sprinkle a small amount of Kosher salt over the chicken breasts. Bake at 400 degrees for 40-45 min or until chicken is done.
