    1. Preheat the Oven:

    2. Prepare the Chicken:
      In a bowl, combine minced garlic, grated Parmesan cheese, paprika, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper.

      Brush each chicken breast with olive oil and then coat them with the Parmesan mixture, pressing gently to adhere the coating.
    4. Bake the Chicken:
      Place the coated chicken breasts in the prepared baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the coating is golden and crispy.

    Pro Tips
    • Temperature Accuracy: Use a meat thermometer to ensure the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 75°C (165°F) for perfect doneness.
    • Crispy Coating: For an extra crispy texture, bake the chicken on a wire rack placed on the baking sheet. This allows air to circulate around the chicken, ensuring a crispy bottom.
    • Flavor Infusion: Marinate the chicken in the garlic and Parmesan mixture for an hour before baking to enhance flavor.
    • Fresh Ingredients: Use freshly grated Parmesan cheese and minced garlic for the best flavor. Pre-grated cheese and bottled garlic may lack the same intensity.
    • Serve with a Dip: Prepare a light dipping sauce like aioli or marinara to complement the chicken. It adds an extra layer of flavor.
