Homemade Bread Crumbs
Toast 6 slices homemade-style white bread lightly in a 350 degrees F oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
After bread cools, cut off and discard the crusts from the bread and tear into large pieces.
Place in a food processor or blender and process until very fine. Makes about 2 1/2 cups
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small saucepan, combine the butter and garlic. Heat over medium-high heat until the butter has melted. Pour into a large bowl and cool to room temperature.
In a large bowl mix the bread crumbs, cheese, salt and pepper. Dip each chicken piece, one at a time, into the melted garlic butter. Transfer to the bread crumb mixture and turn until coated on all sides.
Arrange the chicken in one flat layer on a large baking sheet. Drizzle on any of the remaining melting butter.
Bake until lightly browned and just cooked through, 50 to 60 minutes.
