This recipe was given to me by a friend many years ago. Her favorite is bone-in chicken, while mine is boneless, skinless breast. Try it both ways and see which you prefer. My family, friends, relatives...well everyone I know tries to wrest an invitation to dinner when they know this chicken is on the menu. It smells wonderful while baking, which is why we have to shut all the doors and windows, or the neighbors will be on our doorstep for dinner!

Ingredients

8
boneless, skinless chicken breasts (5-6oz each)
1 c
old fashioned oats
1/2 c
parmesan cheese (in shaker jar)
1 tsp
dried thyme
1 stick
salted butter
1 tsp
freshly minced garlic

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Melt butter over low heat; add garlic and stir.
2
In a pie plate, mix oatmeal, Parmesan and thyme. When mixture runs out, mix more as needed; doubling the ingredients does not seem to work as well.
3
Rinse and dry chicken breasts; trim any visible fat.
4
Dip chicken in butter to coat; then press into the oatmeal mixture until coated. Repeat with remaining breasts.
5
Place coated breasts in a prepared casserole dish or baking pan; allow to rest for 10 minutes.
6
Drizzle remaining butter evenly over the breasts and bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes.
7
Serve hot, with spinach mashed potatoes and steamed vegetable medley or orange-glazed carrots.
