This dish starts on the stovetop, then moves into the oven to bake. It is finished off by broiling to lightly brown the top. It goes well with a lightly buttered vegetable like broccoli or cauliflower.
Melt butter in a skillet over medium high heat. Add olive oil. Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Cook about 5 to 10 minutes until lightly browned on one side. Turn and cook until other side is lightly brown.
Place chicken in a baking dish. Combine bread crumbs, shallots, garlic, and parsley. Sprinkle over chicken pieces.
Bake 10 minutes at 400 degrees F until chicken is done.
Cook under broiler briefly to brown the top quickly.
