Meals that are cooked for families during the weekday tend to be viewed as basic and simplistic because they have to fit into the busy schedules that everyone is juggling on a daily basis.

It could be a tremendous boon for people who love to cook, but simply cannot afford to spend too much time in the kitchen. With this tasty recipe for olive oil garlic chicken, you can get in the kitchen, whip it up, and get back to the routine in no time.
Garlic Olive Oil Chicken

Lightly crusted, and consumed by flavors, this olive oil garlic chicken dish will turn your average weeknight mealtime into something completely special altogether.
The ingredients included in this recipe are truly about as simple as they can get for a dish that tastes this scrumptious. Required are two-quarter cups of olive oil and dry bread crumbs, respectively, two teaspoons of garlic, a half cup of parmesan cheese, and a set of chicken breasts. Obviously, the amount of each ingredient and the number of chicken breasts you can use for this recipe can vary depending on how many mouths you are trying to feed on a nightly basis, but the same can be said of every recipe.

Baked Chicken with Olive Oil
Baked chicken is a pretty popular dish to cook for your family on a weeknight, but this recipe stands out from the other standard baked chicken fare because of the way the ingredients are blended together perfectly to set your taste buds aflame with delight. Not every baked chicken recipe comes cooked in olive oil and not every baked chicken recipe comes doused and peppered with garlic. Well, to be honest, not every baked chicken recipe even necessarily comes cooked with cheese. Then again, not every baked chicken recipe tastes this good and keeps people in the kitchen for the absolute minimum amount of time.
For one, the recipe keeps people in and out of the kitchen quickly because there are only six steps in the process and three of the time require minimal effort on the part of the home chef. For example, step one is simply preheating the oven and the final step is completely hands-off as you allow the meal to cook in the oven for thirty minutes or so, which is a small amount of time, as well.
The real nitty-gritty of the cooking procedure comes in the middle of the cooking steps during the recipe. For one, you have to combine the bread crumbs and the cheese into a concoction all their own. For another, you have to blend the garlic and the olive oil into something that will then later be combined with the chicken breasts. Regardless of the step in the recipe, though, all of them are quite well-suited to families, parents, and more who need to cook a meal with relative expediency.
