  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups fresh bread crumbs (recipe below)
  • 2/3 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano, freshly grated
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 3 1/2 pound chicken, cut into 10 pieces (or all thighs, wings, or breasts if desired)
  • Cooking Directions

    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.
