New Recipe!

I've got a yummy one for you guys... I found this gem on The Fallen Souffle - one of the blogs to which I subscribe... I made this one this week and it was really, really good. I actually used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter instead of real butter; the taste was fantastic, but the breading didn't stay on the chicken as well as I had hoped... I definitely recommend using real butter.

Have a great weekend, everyone! My new car should be here Monday, so I'll spend this weekend making my "to do when the car gets here" list!

Love, Mer

Parmesean Chicken

1 clove garlic, minced

1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup or 1/4 pound), melted

1 cup dried bread crumbs

1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

A large pinch of Italian seasoning (herb mix)

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 lbs of skinless, boneless, chicken meat, cut into pieces no larger than 2x2 inches

Preheat oven to 450°F.

In a bowl, combine the minced garlic with the melted butter. In another bowl mix together the bread crumbs, Parmesan, parsley, salt, garlic salt, Italian seasoning, and pepper. Dip chicken pieces into garlic butter, then into crumb mixture to coat.

Place coated chicken pieces on to a 9x13 baking dish. Try to leave a little room between each piece. Drizzle with remaining garlic butter and bake uncovered 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear. Note that the chicken will get much more browned on the bottom side than on the top.

Serves 4-6.
