Crispy Cheddar Chicken

Tammy T


This chicken dish is quick and easy and delish! I do these a little differently than most. Can use Ritz crackers but I like the bread crumbs as I like to taste the cheddar cheese. I also like the texture of the bread crumbs better. I also do not use eggs to dip the chicken in. By the way, very kid friendly!

By the way, I am guesstimating on the amounts as I just throw this together. :)

boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 c
sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
3 c
plain bread crumbs
1 c
salt & pepper
1 tsp
garlic salt
1 Tbsp
sauce *************************
can cream of chicken soup
2 Tbsp
sour cream
2 Tbsp


1Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Slice chicken breasts into three pieces. This will help your chicken cook quicker, and make it easy to serve the children.
2Gather three pans or dishes to fill with the milk, sharp cheddar, and breadcrumbs. Add the salt and pepper and garlic salt into the breadcrumbs and mix.
3Dip chicken pieces in the milk first, then roll in the cheese and then gently with your hands sprinkle the breadcrumbs all over the chicken, to cover.
4Line baking sheet with parchment paper and place chicken on parchment and sprinkle the tops of the chicken with parsley.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden and juice runs clear. (time depends on size of chicken pieces so watch closely)
5Prepare the sauce by mixing all the sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan until hot. I add a little pepper to the sauce. Spoon over the chicken.

Serve with your choice of potatoes, pasta or rice for a side.
