Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups fresh breadcrumbs from French Bread
1/2 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes -- drained
3 1/2 tbsp. reserved oil from sun-dried tomatoes
2 large clove garlic
4 (12 oz.) chicken breast halves with skin and bone

Combine the breadcrumbs, sun-dried tomatoes, 2 tbsp. oil reserved from tomatoes and garlic in food processor. Using on/off pulses, process until tomatoes are coarsely chopped. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Can be made 8 hours ahead. Cover and chill.)

Preheat oven to 375F. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 1-1/2 tbsp. of reserved oil from tomatoes in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, skin side down, and cook until skin is crisp and golden, about 5 minutes.

Transfer chicken, skin side up, to heavy rimmed baking dish. Spoon breadcrumb mixture atop chicken, dividing equally and pressing to adhere. Bake until chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes.
