That means it's gotta be good.
boneless chicken breasts, one per serving
butter or margarine
fresh garlic, chopped fine
- 2 cloves per breast
Italian seasoning (or other seasoning, as
Preheat the oven to 325. Grease a baking dish with
the oil, then lightly oil the chicken, just enough to
keep it from drying out while cooking. Spread the softened

the chopped garlic over the chicken, then sprinkle the
seasoning until you get pretty good coverage,

to the top and broil for the last 10 minutes to brown
If you use non-boneless chicken breasts, up the cooking
time to an hour (50 min. baking, 10 min. broiling).
