Chicken is a staple at our house so I am always on the lookout for new chicken recipes. I was reading through some cookbooks the other day and found this recipe. It’s easy and very good.
I did not cook it as long as directed since and the chicken I used was very thin so I baked for about 30 minutes total it was perfect. I also used fresh chives because I do not like dried chives at all and the fresh version is easy to find in grocery stores.
I found the recipe in a cookbook called Almost Heaven from the Junior League of Huntington, WV.
Chicken with Butter Chive Sauce
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
2 tbsps grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup butter, melted and divided
1/2 cup white wine
2 tbsps snipped fresh chives
Preheat oven to 375º.
Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and spices on a plate. Put 1/4 cup melted butter in a bowl. Dip chicken in the butter, then in the crumb mixture and place in a baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes.
Combine 1/4 cup melted butter, wine and chives in a small bowl. Pour over chicken and continue to bake for 15 more minutes or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink. If your chicken is thick, it will take longer to cook.
Makes 2 servings.
