  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¾ teaspoon Lawry’s seasoned salt
  • teaspoon pepper
  • 4 teaspoons Italian-style breadcrumbs


  • Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Spray a baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Place chicken in prepared dish and season lightly with salt and pepper.

  • Bake, uncovered, for about 40 minutes.


Cooking Just for Two? You can modify this recipe to make as many chicken breasts as you need. For instance, if you only want to cook 2 chicken breasts, just cut the topping ingredients in half as well. You can bake the chicken in a smaller dish, but the cooking instructions remain the same.
