This simple preparation of cod has been a favorite for generations. Using pieces of fillet equal in thickness is important for ensuring even baking; if you have any pieces that are particularly thick or thin you may want to bake them in a separate pan to ensure that they are not over or under baked.
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Sprinkle cod with salt and pepper and arrange on the baking sheet. Drizzle it with half the butter and half the lemon juice.
In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs, parsley and chives. Sprinkle the mixture over the cod and drizzle with remaining butter and lemon juice. Bake just until bread crumbs are crisped and cod flakes easily with a fork, about 12 minutes.
