Dip Chicken Breasts into water. Coat with mixture of flour & seasonings. Lightly grease a 13x9x2 Baking Dish. Place Chicken Breasts into the pan. Dot with butter. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven. Combine dry milk powder & hot water in a bowl. Pour milk around chicken. Cover with aluminum foil and return to the oven. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
