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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. 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.
  3. Add the remaining butter, and leave over the heat until melted.
  4. In a pie plate or shallow dish, combine crumbs, cheese, oregano, salt and pepper.
  5. Dip each piece of chicken in the melted butter, coating all sides, then dredge in the crumb mixture. Place in a baking dish.
  6. Drizzle remaining butter over the chicken pieces.
  7. 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.
