Kittencal’s Moist Cheddar-Garlic Oven Fried Chicken Breast

Published September 22, 2012 by thepinkgourmet

If you are a garlic lover then this is the chicken for you!!! This is a baked chicken but has a crisp outside and a moist inside.  You can add more or less garlic to your taste.  It is a very easy recipe to do and can be made from start to finish within 1 hour.

Kittencal’s Moist Cheddar-Garlic Oven Fried Chicken Breast



    • 1/3 cup butter, melted
    • 2 tablespoons minced garlic ( can use more or less)
    • 2 teaspoons garlic powder, divided ( garlic lovers can use more)
    • 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt ( or can use white salt)
    • 3/4 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs ( seasoned or plain)
    • 1/2 cup finely grated cheddar cheese
    • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper ( or to taste)
    • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
    • shredded cheddar cheese ( optional and use any amount desired, or can use shredded mozzarella cheese)
Directions:1.   Preheat oven to 350°F.2.  Butter an 11 x 7-inch pan (if using more than 4 breasts use a larger pan).3.  In a bowl, combine melted butter with fresh minced garlic, 1 teaspoon garlic powder and salt.4.  In another bowl, combine the dry breadcrumbs with 1/2 cup finely grated cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese1 teaspoon garlic powder and coarse ground black pepper.5.  Dip chicken in butter mixture; then in crumb mixture.6.  Place in prepared pan and bake uncovered for 35-45 minutes or until cooked through, larger breasts may take more time (placing the chicken on a rack in a pan will produce an extra crispy crust).7.  Top with shredded cheddar or mozzarella the last 5 minutes of cooking (this is only optional.
The first thing you want to do is grease your baking dish with butter.
Put your minced garlic, garlic powder, butter, and salt into a small bowl.
Melt the butter with the minced garlic, garlic powder, and salt .  This is not the way the recipe says to do it. I think doing it this way increases the flavor of the garlic.
Next,  get your bread crumbs, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese,  garlic powder, and black pepper together.
Mix these ingredients till well incorporated.
Dip your chicken breasts in the butter mixture and then into the bread crumb mixture.
Make sure you coat your chicken well with the crumb mixture.
Place your chicken into your buttered dish and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 35-45 minutes.
If you want cheddar cheese on the top, add during the last 5 minutes of the cooking time.
There is nothing left to say but enjoy!!
I give this recipe out of 4……
