Ingredients

4
boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 c
shredded cheddar jack cheese
2 c
panko bread crumbs
3
eggs and 1/2 cup water to make egg wash
salt and pepper to taste
garlic salt to taste
1 Tbsp
chopped parsley

FOR THE SAUCE:

1 can(s)
(10 oz.) cheddar cheese soup
2 Tbsp
butter
2 Tbsp
sour cream
1/2 c
water
1 Tbsp
chopped parsley

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pound the chicken breasts until they are about 1/2 inch thick (or cut them in half lengthwise). Sprinkle each chicken breast with salt, pepper, and garlic salt; set aside.
2
Set up three bowls: one containing the egg wash, one containing the cheddar Jack cheese, and one containing the Panko crumbs.
3
Dip each piece of chicken in the egg wash, then the cheddar Jack cheese and then the Panko crumbs. Place the chicken in a 13x9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with parsley.
4
Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake in a preheated 400ยบ oven for 35 minutes. Remove the foil and continue to cook until chicken is brown on top, about 10 minutes.
5
FOR THE SAUCE:
In a small saucepan melt the butter, then add the cheddar cheese soup, sour cream and the 1/2 cup water. Add the parsley.
6
Mix together well over medium heat until hot but not boiling and transfer to a bowl or a gravy boat so it may be served on the side.
7
Remove chicken from the oven and serve with sauce.
