Mouthwatering Cheddar-Garlic Oven Fried Chicken Breasts


This is hands-down some of the best chicken I’ve eaten ~ well, that is, that’s not deep-fried!



 
If you like garlic, and moist and tender chicken, this recipe, which I found here, is for you!


Oven-ready


I added extra garlic and plenty of seasoned black pepper; however, the next time, I will be doing as the original recipe states...

“To take the recipe to another level, about 10 minutes before the cooking time is finished, drizzle the top of the chicken with a little pasta sauce, and then sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top. Return to oven to bake for 10 minutes until the sauce is hot and cheese has melted.”

This is some delicious chicken!  Bill and I agreed ~ it's “finger-lickin’ good!"

  1. Pam, Looks great! My better half bakes chicken for us using Italian Breadcrumbs and spices or Spicy Hot Panko... She always uses garlic too. I really like the way she does it but I think that the addition of both cheese varieties would kick it up yet another notch! Take Care, Big Dave

  2. It's hard to go wrong with chicken for dinner--or any time.
    It took me awhile to figure out why a lot of my FB friends (Cub fans) were posting a white flag with a "W" on it or was it an "M". My husband finally told me it was, indeed, a "W" for "WIN". Go Cubs!!

    Best,
    Bonnie

  4. Baking Chicken rather than deep frying is my choice, too, Pam. Now that it's chillier outside I'm using my oven. This looks yummy, thanks!

The smells of slow cooking spread around the house and impart a unique warmth matched only by the flavour of the food.
