I always feel you can never have too many great recipes on hand for an easy dinner. If you have a well stocked fridge, freezer and pantry, you can usually pull off some type of amazing meal. Having a stocked kitchen makes substitutions easy for an ingredient you may not have, if you are following a recipe you've found somewhere.

Today's chicken is one of those recipes that is easily made with ingredients found in your kitchen. You can switch out the cheese depending on what you have on hand, switch out with any boneless chicken by just adjusting the baking time if needed, or switch up the seasonings you use.

This chicken turns out perfectly every time. It's juicy, super flavorful and the butter, breadcrumb and cheese mixture makes a wonderful breading. The garlic butter is the magic in this recipe, hands down. It adds an extra level of flavor and helps the breading to become crunchy while baking, along with the cheese.

You can serve this chicken with almost any simple side, pasta or even on a sandwich. It's kid friendly, especially when you make them with tenderloins, kind of like a jazzed up chicken strip!

Baked Breaded Cheesy Garlic Chicken Cutlets

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ⅓ cup plain bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
  • 4-6 chicken cutlets (about 1 ½ pounds total)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cover a baking sheet in aluminum foil. Spray the baking sheet with cooking oil spray.
  3. In a medium sized saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. In a shallow dish, mix the bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, parsley, oregano, pepper and garlic salt.
  5. Dip each chicken cutlet in the garlic butter to coat, then coat in the bread crumb mixture, pressing crumb mixture onto each side of the chicken. Place each piece of chicken onto the prepared baking sheet.
  6. If you have extra butter and bread crumb mixture, evenly drizzle and sprinkle both over top of the chicken.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.

Notes

If you have chicken breasts instead of cutlets, slice each breast in half horizontally, creating a thinner piece of meat. Chicken tenderloins can also be used.


Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.
