Have You Tried The Most Delicious Chicken Breasts Ever?

My family has gone crazy about these cheddar and garlic, oven-fried chicken breasts – and I can completely understand why. They are super delicious!

We really love garlic so that’s probably one of the things that made this recipe such a hit at our house. I love serving these with jasmine rice, or sometimes simply with steamed veggies, if I want to make a lighter dinner. Either way we never have any leftovers!




1cup Land O’ Lakes butter, melted

2 tablespoons minced garlic

2 teaspoons McCormick garlic powder, divided

1teaspoon seasoning salt

3cup seasoned dry bread crumbs

1cup finely grated Kraft cheddar cheese

1cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

1teaspoon ground black pepper

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

shredded cheddar cheese (optional, use any amount desired)



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease an 11 x 7-inch pan.

In a bowl, mix together melted butter, minced garlic, 1 teaspoon garlic powder and salt.

In a separate bowl, mix together the dry breadcrumbs, 1/2 cup finely grated cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese 1 teaspoon garlic powder and coarse ground black pepper.

Dip chicken breasts first in butter mixture; then in crumb mixture.

Place in prepared pan and bake uncovered for 35-45 minutes or until cooked through, larger breasts may take more time (placing the chicken on a rack in a pan will produce an extra crispy crust).

Top with shredded cheddar or mozzarella the last 5 minutes of cooking (this is only optional.




Quick tip: If you’re using large chicken breasts, slice them in half to make sure they cook evenly.
