Cheddar Crusted Chicken

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • about 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Ccoat chicken with egg.
  3. In a large zip lock, mix bread cumbs and cheese. Toss in chicken, seal, and shake ;)
  4. Place coated chicken in a greased oven safe pan. Top with the remainder of the crumbs & cheddar that didn't stick to the chicken.
  5. Bake, uncovered, until chicken is cooked through, around 30 mins depending on the thickness of the chicken.
I served this with cheddar roasted cauliflower and apple sauce.

And P.S....to show you how easy this meal was to make, I did it with a wild preschooler dancing around the kitchen and a clingy/tired/teething 1yo strapped to my back in the Ergo :)

I wanted to get that Ergo! I loved the pink but feared my hubby wouldn't wear it so i got the black.

But guess what? He doesn't wear the black one either!

Mom Of Three, this was enough for our family of 4...however, my girls are young and don't eat much chicken so this would probably be a good large portion for 2. I would just make as many chicken breasts as you normally would for your family of 5 (I used 2 chicken breasts).
