dry bread crumbs
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups
shredded Cheddar cheese
ground black pepper
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded thin
Soooo good! I used a combo of shredded cheddar, bread crumbs, and corn flakes (actually threw in the crumbs from a Cheese-Nip box as well) to create the breading. Also added extra cheese on top. So delicious! It's a constant request in the house. Edit: I've made this so many times and had so much fun playing around with it that I want to share - 1 cup of crackers (Ritz, cornflakes, saltines, cheese-nips, anything!), 1/2c parm chz, 1 1/2c cheddar, 1/2c bread crumbs. I also dip the chicken in flour before the butter to help it stick. This is a great recipe to be adventurous with - do not hesitate to play around!!! Update 2: I've discovered Panko bread crumbs to replace the standard crumbs. WOW! MUCH crispier and gives it that texture that I've noticed a lot of reviews say is missing. No panko... try coursely crushing some croutons.
An acceptable, but rather ordinary chicken recipe--kind of "ho hum." I'm sure I would have been a bigger fan of this when I was still cooking for my kids when they were younger, but as grown-ups we've moved kind of beyond your average Shake and Bake type chicken. I used crushed cornflakes rather than crumbs, and dill for the oregano, but nothing made this chicken "wake up." On the upside, this is a "safe" chicken recipe, as even the pickiest of eaters wouldn't be able to find something not to like here--no unusual spices or blending of flavors. It was a little too buttery, however, so for those who would like to give this recipe a try I might suggest coating the chicken in egg rather than melted butter, and maybe drizzling a little butter over the top before baking.
GREAT!! only thing i did differently was to put a thin layer of the bread crumb mixture on the bottom of the baking dish before i put the chicken in. (just to keep the bottom of the chicken from getting soggy) worked great!
This is delicious! I made a few changes. I used half butter, half olive oil. Also used Italian herbed bread crumbs and a variety of Italian seasonings. I didn't have chicken breasts, so I used chicken tenders (still flattened them though). I greased the pan and followed others' suggestions by putting down a thin layer of bread crumbs in the pan before laying down the chicken. The chicken tenders only took 18 minutes to bake, and then, following others' suggestions, I broiled the chicken for another 2 minutes. I HIGHLY recommend broiling the chicken at the end because it gives it a delicious crunch!
Use an aluminum/foil pan for this recipe- it keeps the chicken from getting soggy. Also, throw the ingredients into a processor- it blends everything up all nice and makes it easier to coat the chicken.
This dish has a fabulous flavor. The chicken was swimming in butter so the next time I prepare I will place it on a roaster rack. I did not pound thin and I baked it for 1 hour 15 minutes and it came out perfect. I didn't use fresh garlic but rather from the jar and I used 4 teaspoons as we are garlic lovers and that was just right for us. I used garlic and herb seasoned bread crumbs. I thought that I could have omitted the salt. I will definitely make this again but I hated that the bread crumbs became soggy in the butter. Thanks for sharing!
This is a great, tasty and easy chicken dish. I used sharp cheddar cheese in this. I omitted the extra salt and used unsalted butter; as the cheeses are salty enough. I scaled the recipe down to 2 servings and the proportions were just perfect. I had to bake mine for extra time because my breasts were still partially frozen. I didn't pound them either, and the chicken was so tender you could cut it with a fork. Served with mashed potatoes and steamed baby carrots.
Mmmm! I added a little flour to my breadcrumb mixture to make a nice crispy coating. Also, I didn't add the grated cheese to the dry mixture. I coated my chicken with butter, and then the crumb mixture as directed, and I sprinkled each piece of chicken with cheese so that it was sure to really melt into everything. Good stuff!
