Garlic Chicken


Simple to make, just dip and bake! Garlicky goodness in a breaded chicken dish. Yum!
This is for those nights when I am craving chicken parmigan. I make this chicken and cook some pasta and pop open a jar of Prego!!

Ingredients
• 2 teaspoons crushed garlic
• 1/4 cup olive oil
• 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
• 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
• 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Warm the garlic and olive oil to blend the flavors. In a separate dish, combine the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Dip the chicken breasts in the olive oil and garlic mixture, then into the bread crumb mixture. Place in a shallow baking dish.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until no longer pink and juices run clear.

This is such a quick and yummy recipe. Basically it’s a pasta with everything you would put on a pizza, and it really tasted like you are eating a pizza to!!
Very filling, it is a great family meal.

In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef with the onion, garlic and green bell pepper. Drain excess fat. Stir in the noodles, pepperoni, pizza sauce and milk, and mix well. Pour this mixture into a 2-quart casserole dish.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes, top with the cheese, then bake for 5 to 10 more minutes.

I picked and froze a lot of blueberries this year. I absolutely love baking with them and just eating them frozen. Now I have tried a lot of blue berry muffin recipes, but I never found the “perfect” one.
