Garlic Cheddar Chicken

10Jul08

We love cheese and we love garlic, and this dish had just the right amount of both…. the chicken turned out beautifully, untill I dropped nearly the whole plate of it on to the ground trying to take a picture for this blog! Needless to say I ate the chicken that was saved, and Justin had no problems enforcing the 5 second rule on the rest!! This recipe was found on recipezaar.com, and is seriously amazing!!!

Ingredients

* 1/3 cup butter, melted
* 2 tablespoons minced garlic (use 2 tablespoons for extreme flavor!)
* 1 teaspoon garlic powder (can use more)
* 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt (or to taste, or use white salt)
* 1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumb (can use 3/4 cup)
* 1/2 cup finely grated cheddar cheese
* 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
* 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper (or to taste)
* 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
* grated cheddar cheese or mozzarella cheese (optional, use any
amount desired)

DIrections

1. Set oven to 350°F.
2. Butter an 11 x 7-inch pan (if using more than 4 breasts use a larger pan).
3. In a bowl, combine melted butter with fresh minced garlic, garlic powder and salt.
4. In another bowl, combine breadcrumbs with 1/2 cup finely grated cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese and coarse ground black pepper.
5. Dip chicken in butter mixture; then in crumb mixture.
6. Place in prepared pan and bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes or until juices run clear, or you may bake covered for 15 minutes and uncover for the remainder of the cooking time, baking uncovered will create a crispier crust.
7. Top with shredded cheddar or mozzarella the last 5 minutes of cooking (optional, but of course we did it!)
