Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a small saucepan melt butter/margarine with garlic. Dip chicken pieces in butter/garlic sauce, letting extra drip off, then coat completely with bread crumbs.
Place coated chicken in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Combine any leftover butter/garlic sauce with bread crumbs and spoon mixture over chicken pieces. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
First, rub the chicken with olive oil and seasonings. If cooking on stovetop, save some oil for the pan.
Heat the rest of olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat, place chicken breasts in and cook until edges are opaque, about 10 minutes.
Flip to the other side, then cover the pan, lower the heat and cook for another 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place chicken on broiler pan (recommended) or baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake 15 more minutes (or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit).
Setup oven so top rack is 3-4 inches from heating element.
Set oven to broil and preheat on high.
Broil chicken 3-8 minutes on each side. Actual time will vary based on thickness of breasts and proximity to the heating element.
Finally (and this is important) let the chicken rest for at least 5 minutes before you cut it or all the juice you made the effort to keep in will come running right out, resulting in a flavorless, rubbery mass. When it comes to a juicy chicken breast, patience is a virtue.

Combine the oil, garlic, some salt, half of the lime juice, and half of the cilantro into a large bowl and mix. Add in the chicken and toss to coat (optional: cover bowl and allow chicken to marinate for 1 hour to overnight).
Heat a grill pan or skillet over medium high heat and cook the chicken about 5 minutes on each side or until fully cooked and no longer pink on the inside.
Remove chicken from the pan and sprinkle on remaining lime juice and cilantro. Serve.
