Breaded, pan-fried chicken is always a sure bet when you’re looking for a quick meal that’s tasty and easy to prepare.  It’s always nice to punch it up a little, though, in a way that will yield more flavor but without too much more effort.

This chicken does just that.  It has a nice tang from the lemon and great flavor from the romano and rosemary.  Plus, it gets double the garlic flavor by pan-roasting garlic cloves.  Once cooked, the garlic goes into the dipping mixture and then the garlic-infused oil is used to cook the chicken.  The garlic flavor isn’t too pungent, though, because pan-roasting it makes it much more sweet and mellow.

This dish is juicy and flavorful, and really easy to make.  It’s a great weeknight meal, especially since the garlic is pan-roasted rather than oven-roasted, which takes far less time.  We had this with some braised lentils with vegetables, but the side dish possibilities are endless.  This would be great on top of a crisp salad with a lemon vinaigrette, especially in the summer!
