  • 4 (16-ounces) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and fresh ground pepper , to taste
  • 1 stick (1/2-cup) butter*
  • 6 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Reduced Fat 4-Cheese Italian


  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • Lightly grease a baking dish with a pat of butter.
  • Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper; arrange chicken in a single layer in prepared baking dish and set aside.
  • Add butter to a skillet and melt over medium heat.
  • Stir in garlic and cook over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned, stirring very frequently. DO NOT burn the garlic.
  • Stir in the rosemary and remove from heat.
  • Pour the prepared garlic butter over the chicken breasts.
  • Bake for 30 to 32 minutes, or until chicken's internal temperature is 165F.

  • Remove from oven and let stand a couple minutes.

*Though we're using an entire stick of butter for the sauce, we're only ingesting about 1/2-tablespoon of the butter per serving.
