Garlic Lover's Chicken

Here is my first post... this is a favorite in our family. I got the recipe from a magazine and make it regularly.

1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 cup milk
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 lbs)
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp. lemon juice

In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first five ingredients. Place milk in a shallow bowl. Dip chicken in milk, then shake in the crumb mixture. Place in a greased 13X9X2 dish. I like to press some of the left over crumb mixture into the top of the chicken. Combine the butter, garlic and lemon juice; drizzle over chicken. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake uncovered at 350 deg. for 25-30 min. or until juices run clear. (I find it usually takes a bit longer.)
