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. :)

How to Make Crispy Cheddar Chicken


  • 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.
