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

Step-By-Step

1Pound 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.
2Set up three bowls: one containing the egg wash, one containing the cheddar Jack cheese, and one containing the Panko crumbs.
3Dip 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.
4Cover 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.
5FOR 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.
6Mix 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.
7Remove chicken from the oven and serve with sauce.
