Imperial Chicken

This is not for everyday eating, very decadent, but a great special occasion meal. This is my Grandma's recipe.

1 c. fine, dry bread crumbs
1/3 c. Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 c. minced parsley
2 tsp. salt (I don't add the salt)
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 c.) butter, melted
1 sm. clove garlic, crushed
4 chicken breasts
1/8 tsp. ground pepper

Blend bread crumbs, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper. Combine melted butter and garlic. Dip chicken in butter mixture, then into crumb mixture, coating thoroughly. Arrange chicken in single layer in shallow baking pan. Drizzle the remaining butter mixture over chicken. Bake uncovered, in moderate oven, 350 degrees, until the thickest pieces are fork tender, 1 hour. Serves 4-5. Can be made a day ahead.
