RECIPE: Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Garlic Cheddar Chicken (4 servings)

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 lb chicken breasts


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat, and cook the garlic until tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. In a shallow bowl, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Cheddar cheese, parsley, oregano, pepper, and salt.
  4. Dip each chicken breast in the garlic butter to coat, then press into the bread crumb mixture. Arrange the coated chicken breasts in a 9×13 inch baking dish. Drizzle with any remaining butter and top with any remaining bread crumb mixture.
  5. Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

Personal Review: This recipe is a favorite in our house! It’s sooo easy and delicious. I always add a little more garlic than the recipe calls for (we are big garlic fans) and I really just eyeball the cheddar cheese (which we love too, haha!). I almost always have to cook the chicken for longer than the recipe calls for – I don’t know if it’s my oven or if I just have really thicken chicken breasts, but I almost always have to cook the chicken for at least 40-45 minutes. I serve this with some au gratin or scalloped potatoes and some kind of green veggie or salad. I hope this one appeals to you and you enjoy it as much as we do 🙂
