1. Heat oven to 350 degree F. In a small saucepan, melt the butter with the garlic. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool to room temperature.
2. In a large bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, cheese, salt, and pepper. Dip each chicken piece, one at a time, into the melted garlic-butter. Transfer to the breadcrumb mixture and turn to coat on all sides. Arrange the chicken in one flat layer on a large cookie sheet. Drizzle any remaining butter over chicken and bake until lightly browned and just cooked through, 50 to 60 minutes. Makes 5 servings.
