The ultimate one-pan browned butter garlic chicken, so easy anyone can make it

Print this recipe
What could be better than garlic butter chicken? How about browned butter garlic chicken with rosemary and melted cheese? Sometimes you don’t need all the bells and whistles — you just need a few simple ingredients and a little know-how to make something delicious. And once you know how to make this, you’ll be making it all the time.
If you’re not partial to mozzarella or Romano cheese, you could substitute another cheese such as Parmesan, asiago or provolone. If you want to beef up this recipe a bit or you don’t feel like making any side dishes, add a few cubed potatoes. If you're worried the melted butter might spill out over the sides of the baking dish, use something deeper to bake it in, like a casserole dish.

1/2 stick unsalted butter
6 cloves garlic, pressed
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
4 skinless boneless chicken breasts

Heat the oven to 375 F.
Place the butter in a stainless steel saucepan over a medium-high heat until melted.

Add the garlic and rosemary and cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until fragrant. Remove from the heat.
Spread out the green beans on the parchment paper, and season with salt.
Place the chicken breasts on top of the green beans, and season with salt and pepper on both sides.
Pour the brown butter mixture over the chicken and green beans, and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
