Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken puts a delicious twist on a classic favorite with some added garlic (which makes everything better!).  When I found this recipe, the title alone was so appealing, it vaulted to the top of the list and was made within a day.  I reduced the recipe to be made for two (but it can easily be multiplied for more!), added some heat with red pepper flakes and changed some of the amounts and proportions since the first time I made this, there was too much breadcrumb mixture leftover.  Served with a simple side salad or a favorite veggie, Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken is a  healthy, quick and easy chicken dish that makes a perfect weeknight meal…or any time!
