Moist Cheddar Garlic Oven Fried Chicken

What You'll Need

  • 1⁄3 cup butter, melted
  • two tablespoons minced garlic (can use more or less)
  • 1⁄4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper (or to taste)
  • four boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • shredded cheddar cheese (optional and use any amount desired, or can use shredded mozzarella
  • two teaspoons garlic powder, divided (garlic lovers can use more)
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon seasoning salt (or can use white salt)
  • 3⁄4 cup seasoned dry bread crumb (seasoned or plain)
  • 1⁄2 cup finely grated cheddar cheese

How to Make It

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Butter an 11 x 7-inch pan (if using more than 4 breasts use a larger pan).
  • In a bowl, combine melted butter with fresh minced garlic, 1 teaspoon garlic powder and salt.
  • In another bowl, combine the dry breadcrumbs with 1/2 cup finely grated cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese 1 teaspoon garlic powder and coarse ground black pepper.
  • Dip chicken 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.
