Garlic Crumb Topped Chicken

Garlic Crumb Topped Chicken: Sliced fresh tomato, garlicky breadcrumbs, and grated asiago cheese top these tender, juicy, pan-seared chicken cutlets.

Topped with thinly sliced fresh tomato, then smothered in a toasty combination of garlicky panko crumbs and grated asiago cheese, these boneless chicken breasts are deliciously tender, moist and loaded with flavor.

Garlic Crumb Topped Chicken

  • Ingredients:
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (tenderloins removed)
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 to 3 medium plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, very finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup panko crumbs
  • 1/2 cup Asiago cheese, finely grated

Preheat the oven to 375°F and coat a shallow baking pan with nonstick spray.

Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of plastic wrap and gently pound them to an even thickness of about 1/2-inch.

Spread the flour on a sheet of wax paper, season liberally with salt and pepper and combine well. Dredge the chicken breasts in the flour mixture and shake off the excess.

Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken in a single layer and cook until barely golden, about 1-1/2 minutes per side.

Add the broth and continue cooking until the liquid is slightly thickened, 1-1/2 to 2 minutes, turning the chicken once or twice to coat in the pan sauce.

Transfer the chicken to the prepared baking pan and top each piece with a layer of sliced tomato. Season with a little salt and pepper, then drizzle any remaining pan juices evenly over the top. Set aside.

Wipe out the pan and heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of the olive oil along with the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant and soft, 2 minutes (do not brown). Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 2 to 3 minutes, then add the breadcrumbs and cheese and combine well.

Spoon the crumb mixture evenly over the top of the chicken and bake, uncovered for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the crumbs are nicely toasted.
