I have a friend who grows garlic in California who is a member of the Society of the Lovers of the Stinking Rose. He says, “The most common misconception about garlic is that garlic breath is bad breath.” He and his fellow Lovers of the Stinking Rose believe that on the contrary, it’s mouthwash breath that is unpleasant. Their slogan is, “Get rid of mouthwash breath; eat garlic!” This recipe probably won’t give you either mouthwash breath or garlic breath, since cooked garlic is quite mild in its effects.
1 roaster boneless breast
salt and ground pepper to taste
4 tablespoons melted butter or margarine, divided
1/4 cup bread crumbs
2 tablespoons minced, fresh parsley
2 tablespoons minced shallots or scallions
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lemon, thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 375oF. Season breast with salt and pepper. Pour 3 tablespoons melted butter into a baking dish. Add chicken to dish and turn to coat with butter. In a small bowl combine bread crumbs, parsley, shallots and garlic and spoon over chicken. Drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Top with lemon slices. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
