Start this chicken on the stovetop, then finish in the oven for a no-fuss meal.
4T butter or margarine
4 ounces of sharp or extra-sharp cheddar cheese*
1/4 C parmesan cheese
8 boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 cloves chopped garlic
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
3/4 C plain or seasoned bread crumbs
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Brush a 9X13 casserole dish with olive oil.
Saute garlic and pepper in butter for one minute, then remove pot from heat to prevent burning.
In a bowl, mix bread crumbs and cheeses.
Dip chicken pieces in the butter mixture, then coat with breadcrumb mixture and place in baking dish. (if any garlic and butter mixture is left, pour over the chicken). We sprinkled leftover breadcrumb mixture over the chicken too.
Place in the oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
Variation: use mozzarella cheese instead of Cheddar and top chicken with marinara sauce after baking.
