This recipe combines two of my very favorite things: cheese and chicken. Does it get any better than that? We eat chicken for dinner 3-4 days a week, and it's always a favorite at our house. I'm always on the lookout for fun new ways to prepare chicken, to change things up a little, and I was super excited when I came across this recipe from Or Whatever You Do. If you haven't visited Nicole's site before, it's a great mix of delicious recipes, blogging tips, and fun life snippets (her post on the school drop off line cracks me up to no end!). Nicole's baked cheddar chicken looked amazing and I couldn't wait to try it! The only change I made to her recipe was to leave out the wine in the sauce because I didn't have any on hand (I'm sure it would have been delicious with the wine, though!).

This chicken is super tender and flavorful, and the crunchy cheese coating is to die for. This chicken was a huge hit with the whole family, and it's pretty simple to prepare, too! You'll start with some chicken breast strips, and egg and milk mixture, grated cheddar cheese, and a mixture of crushed saltines, Cheez-Its, and panko.

Dip the chicken into each dish, pressing the cheese and the cracker mixture to the chicken to coat, then place in a baking dish.

While the chicken is baking, you'll whip together a lovely creamy sauce to go on top. The sauce bumps up the flavor even more and makes it super delicious!

The chicken comes out of the oven golden and crispy and perfect.

  1. Hi, I really enjoy your blog and your recipes but i'm going to unsubscribe today because your site is so saturated with advertising videos that it makes my computer freeze. Ridiculous! I'm using a brand new HP so this shouldn't happen but it does every time I open a blog with so many videos....which I don't even listen to or read ..a shame I'll miss it but not the extensive time it takes to load all that garbage.

    1. Sorry to hear that! I don't actually have all that much control about which ads appear. Right now I don't see any video ads at all, but the ads are targeted to each individual visitor. I haven't had any other complaints about computers freezing. If you'd like a way to view posts without the video ads, you could subscribe to the blog via email (there's a box on the right hand side that says "subscribe") and the posts will be emailed to you as they are posted.

  3. Your blog always makes me hungry and inspired! Sometimes I struggle finding new recipes to make in the monthly rotation. My family would LOVE these! Keep going girl, because I love your blog. My life has taken off at home so I'm not in the blog world as much as I would like, but I'll have to drop by again soo.
    Blessings!
