Lemon Garlic Chicken Breasts

IMG_0882

We are all busy, but even with busy schedules we do not have to sacrifice a healthy, home cooked meal.  It’s all about easy prep, and this recipe is just that.  It seriously takes under 10 minutes to prepare, put it in the oven, pour a glass of wine (if you are into that sort of thing), and unwind from your day.   Soon you will have a moist, lemony, garlicy, chicken dinner on your hands.  This recipe was given to me by my Aunt Ann, and I whip this meal up at least once a month.  I usually serve with a side salad and fettucinni alfredo.

What you need:

1/2 cup dry Bread Crumbs

1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (This recipe is good for 4-5 chicken breasts, I used 3 for my family, cause its just the 3 of us)

1/2 cup Milk

1/4 cup melted Butter

1-2 minced Garlic Cloves

Juice of 1 Lemon

Sprinkle of Paprika

(Capers are an optional addition)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Then dredge the chicken breast in the bread crumb mixture to completely cover the chicken breast.  Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts.
