This is modified from a recipe on the menus4moms website. It's simple to prepare, and the crunchy topping gives it great texture. I serve it on a bed of spinach fettucini for a pretty presentation. I used bone-in, skin-on thighs, but you could really use whatever pieces you have on hand, or that your family prefers. If using boneless pieces, you will need to cook for less time.
- Preheat oven to 350.
- In a small saucepan over medium low heat, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the garlic, and stir to coat. Continue cooking until garlic is fragrant.
- Add the remaining butter, and leave over the heat until melted.
- In a pie plate or shallow dish, combine crumbs, cheese, oregano, salt and pepper.
- Dip each piece of chicken in the melted butter, coating all sides, then dredge in the crumb mixture. Place in a baking dish.
- Drizzle remaining butter over the chicken pieces.
- Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until done.
My family loved this. I made enough to bring to work the next day and everyone wanted a taste. We will definitely have this again!!
Delicious! I didn't have Italian breadcrumbs so I used panko with a whack of home made italian seasoning. I likely went a bit heavy on the butter but I'm like that. ;) I had read the reviews so adjusted my seasonings accordingly. It was too hot to get the big oven going so I made these with boneless, skinless thighs in the toaster/convection oven. It took 30 minutes to get to 165 degrees and another 3 minutes to broil for a touch more colour.

We enjoyed this chicken recipe. It was really simple to put together and very tasty and moist. Made for ZWT 7 for the Vivacious Violets.
