-Patrick Ulsh, Wine Club Member

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup dry seasoned bread crumbs
  • ¾ + cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

WINE PAIRING:

2011 Dunham Cabernet Sauvignon XVII

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 X 13 baking dish.

In a bowl, blend the olive oil and garlic. In a separate bowl mix the bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, basil, black pepper and salt. Dip each breast half in the oil mixture and then in the bread crumb mixture. Arrange the coated chicken in the prepared baking dish and top with remaining bread crumbs and additional parmesan cheese.

Bake 30 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear (for larger breast halves this could take up to 50 minutes.)
