Garlic Parmesan Chicken

1/2 c butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 c dry bread crumbs
1/2 c Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp salt
8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves- cut in half lengthwise

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt the butter over low heat and cook the garlic until tender, about 5 minutes.

In a shallow bowl, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, oregano, pepper, and salt.

Dip each chicken breast in the garlic butter to coat, then press into the bread crumb mixture.  Arrange the coated chicken breasts in a 9 X 13 inch baking dish.  Drizzle with any remaining butter and top with any remaining bread crumb mixture.

Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is cooked through.

NOTE:  This recipe can also be frozen. Make as directed until baking. Freeze flat on foil lined baking sheets; transfer to freezer bags when frozen. To serve: Bake as directed increasing the bake time to 45 minutes and 400 degrees. Cover the dish with foil, uncovering the last 10 minutes to "crisp."

This sounds amazing. I saw it on Fearless Freezer Cooking and would love to Pin it but when I tried it said "Nothing on the page is pinnable". :(
