Lemon-garlic chicken

I used panko breadcrumbs for this dish, but you can use plain breadcrumbs instead if you'd like.  Darker breadcrumbs will give you a more satisfyingly brown color to your chicken!

Lemon-Garlic Chicken

1/2 c breadcrumbs (panko or regular)
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t salt
1/4 c lemon juice
1 T olive oil
4 large chicken breast halves, skinned
Lemon wedges

Mix the breadcrumbs through the salt in a plastic bag.  Combine the lemon juice and the olive oil, and brush it on the chicken.  Shake the chicken pieces in the breadcrumb mixture and place in a baking dish that has been treated with cooking spray.  If there are any leftover crumbs, shake them onto chicken.  Bake uncovered for 45 minutes at 375, or until done.  Serve with lemon wedges.

Looks delicious. To be honest, I always prefer panko to regular breadcrumbs. So, this is just right up my street.
Thanks for the add on foodbuzz. I look forward to following your posts.
Have a great day!
