Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

This is a great weeknight meal that doesn't take more than 45 minutes!  To make it crispier, I placed a wire rack on a cookie sheet and baked the chicken on top of that.  The spaghetti is optional, but I would recommend some sort of sauce for it, either red or white.

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup dry bread crumbs
2 teaspoons Lowry's
2 teaspoons Mrs. Dash (or something similar)
1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a wire rack and place on a cookie sheet (see above comment).  In a bowl, mix the olive oil and minced garlic.  In a larger bowl, mix bread crumbs, Lowry's, Mrs. Dash, pepper, 2 types of Parmesan and basil.  Dip each chicken breast in the olive oil first, then in the bread crumb mixture.  Make sure you coat the chicken breasts evenly with the crumbs.  Place on the wire rack and bake for 30 minutes.  Keep the oven rack in the middle of the oven and broil the chicken for 4 minutes (make sure that it does not burn).
