This is a quick, simple dinner idea. It's quite popular on the What's Cooking Board. I usually serve it with a side of pasta and marinara sauce, but tonight we had it with some leftover Baked Garlic Rice. The recipe below is written out to create 2 servings, but you can easily change the proportions on the Allrecipes.com website if needed (the original recipe serves 8).
Garlic Cheddar Chicken
2 tbsp butter
1 clove garlic, minced (I used 2 cloves)
3 tbsp dry bread crumbs (I used Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs and omitted the seasonings below)
1/8 tsp dried parsley
1/8 tsp dried oregano
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp salt
2 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese
6 tbsp shredded Cheddar cheese
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat, and cook the garlic until tender, about 5 minutes.
In a shallow bowl, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Cheddar cheese, parsley, oregano, pepper, and salt.
Dip each chicken breast in the garlic butter to coat, then press into the bread crumb mixture. Arrange the coated chicken breasts in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Drizzle with any remaining butter and top with any remaining bread crumb mixture.
Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.
