Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Garlic. Cheddar. Chicken. How could I not make this recipe? I got this recipe from a wonderful set of girls who love to spend their days swapping recipes. With all the talk, this chicken recipe gave me high expectations for how delish this dish would be. I must admit that it did not disappoint. It's a great recipe to throw together in a flash and I bet everyone in your family will love it.

1/2 cup butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
8 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded thin

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat, and cook the garlic until tender, about 5 minutes.

In a shallow bowl, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Cheddar cheese, parsley, oregano, pepper, and salt.

Dip each chicken breast in the garlic butter to coat, then press into the bread crumb mixture. Arrange the coated chicken breasts in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Drizzle with any remaining butter and top with any remaining bread crumb mixture.

Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

I love this recipe! I got it from the Nest board and it's worked its way into our regular dinner rotation. I don't use the extra butter at the end and the recipe still turns out great!
