Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Sadly, I found the (free) cruise food on Norwegian to be quite mediocre except for a few dishes.  So oddly enough, I'm quite happy to be back home and cooking!  Weird, huh?  Tonight I made another new dish and was pleased by the way it came out.  It was a little salty for my taste so I'm tweaking the original recipe to reduce the salt.  I served this dish with some Grands biscuits and fresh steamed broccoli.

15 Min

45 Min

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons dry seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded thin
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat, and cook the garlic until tender, about 5 minutes.  Remove from heat. 
  3. In a large ziplock bag, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Cheddar cheese, parsley, oregano, pepper, and salt.  Shake until well mixed.
  4. Dip each chicken breast in the garlic butter to coat, then put into the ziplock bag containing the bread crumb mixture. Shake to coat.
  5. Arrange the coated chicken breasts in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Drizzle with any remaining butter and top with any remaining bread crumb mixture.
  6. Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.
