Cheddar Baked Chicken

Source: All Recipes

I've seen this on a couple of blogs now, and I liked how easy it looked, as well as tasty.

The end result WAS very tasty--I loved the topping and the chicken was incredibly moist. I did, however, feel it was a bit too salty, and I love salt! I think the next time I make it, I'll cut the salt out of the flour mixture.

Cheddar Baked Chicken

Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 40 Minutes
Ready In: 50 Minutes
Yields: 6 servings

1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 cup crispy rice cereal
3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut in half (or pounded thin)
2 tablespoons butter, melted

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a medium baking dish with 1/4 cup melted butter.

2. In a bowl, mix the flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. In a separate bowl, beat together the egg and milk. In a third bowl, mix the cheese, bread crumbs, cereal. Dredge chicken pieces in the flour mixture, dip in the egg mixture, then press in the breadcrumb mixture to coat. Arrange in the prepared baking dish. Drizzle 2 tablespoons butter evenly over chicken.

3. Bake 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until coating is golden brown and chicken juices run clear. Enjoy!
