Easy Recipes-Cheddar Garlic Chicken

I found this chicken recipe on Pinterest and it originally comes from Food.com. It is easy to make and tastes delicious. My kids have been begging for me to make it again. This is a type of oven-fried chicken so it isn’t oily like real fried chicken can be. It seems like there is an over-abundance of garlic in this recipe but when we ate it it didn’t taste like too much garlic, so don’t be afraid of this recipe…give it a try.

Cheddar Garlic Chicken Recipe


  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 2 TBS crushed garlic
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • 3/4 cup dry Italian bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Grease a 13x9" pan
  3. In a bowl, combine melted butter, crushed garlic, garlic powder and seasoned salt.
  4. In another bowl, combine the dry breadcrumbs, cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder and pepper.
  5. Dip chicken in butter mixture; then in crumb mixture.
  6. Place in prepared pan and bake uncovered for 35-45 minutes or until cooked through, larger breasts may take more time (placing the chicken on a rack in a pan will produce an extra crispy crust).
  7. Top with any extra shredded cheddar or mozzarella the last 5 minutes of cooking (optional)
