    Remember that incredible Lebanese Garlic Sauce my Aunt Paula recently shared with me? Let’s just say it didn’t last long in this house.

    First we enjoyed it as an appetizer with warm pita bread. The next day we served it as a dipping sauce for Lebanese Chicken Tawook with a Lebanese green salad on the side.

    And then… a lightbulb went off and I created one of the most delicious recipes of my life: Crispy Garlic Baked Chicken Breasts.

    Consider it a modern day version of the Miracle Whip chicken you grew up eating. Oh don’t pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about… You know you loved it and frankly, so did I.

    Traditionally dry, life-less chicken breasts become tender and juicy when coated with creamy garlic sauce and topped with crispy panko. This ridiculously easy recipe is absolutely mouth-watering and 100% kid-friendly.

    Be sure to make extra – leftovers taste great on a salad or thrown in a pita for a quick lunch the next day.

    Your fork is waiting.
