DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Liberally salt and pepper BOTH sides of the chicken breast halves.
  • Arrange chicken pieces in a glass baking dish just big enough to hold them without the pieces touching each other or the sides of the dish.
  • In a microwave-safe measuring cup or bowl, heat butter and V-8 just enough for the butter to melt. (About 20 seconds on high).
  • Stir in garlic powder, basil and oregano, crushing the dried herbs with your fingers as you add them to release more flavor.
  • Pour butter-juice-herb mixture over the chicken, turning the chicken as necessary for complete coverage.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 25 minutes.
  • If using the mozzarella, sprinkle it evenly over the chicken AFTER removing from the oven.
  • Tent loosely with foil to melt the cheese and keep warm until serving.
