Baked Lemon-Cheddar Chicken
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
4 slices Mild Cheddar
4 slices White American Cheese
1/2 cup Milk
3/4 cup Bread Crumbs
1 Tbs Dried Herbs Mixture (Rosemary, Thyme, Majoram, Basil, Oregano, Savory.)
1/4 tsp Pepper
1/4 cup Grated Cheese (Parmesean or Romano or a mixture of both)
6 Tbs Butter
1 Whole Lemon (quartered)
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Paprika
Olive oil to grease pan.
2 Small bowls
Measuring cups & spoons
1.Preheat oven 350f/175c
2.Lightly grease a casserole pan (big enough to place all your chicken after they’ve been cut)
3.Butterfly cut your chicken breasts, set aside.
4.Pour Milk and egg into a small bowl and whisk together.
5.Combine Breadcrumbs, Herbs, Parma and pepper in a shallow bowl.
6.Dip each chicken breast into milk mixture, then dredge through breadcrumb mixture, patting firmly to coat each chicken breast completely.
7.Place chicken breast side by side in a single layer in your casserole pan. Place a slice of each cheese on top of each chicken breast (so two pieces of cheese per chicken).
8.Place the butter on top of the chicken, where the cheese isn’t touching. Squeeze a wedge of lemon over each chicken breast. Sprinkle salt and paprika over each chicken breast. Place in oven to bake for 30-35 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. (not pink 🙂 )
