Baked Cheddar Chicken



Oh, wow! I tried a new recipe last night and was it ever tasty! It probably isn't on any diet menu, but I'd say it's worth a one-time splurge every now and then! ;)

Cheddar Chicken

16 buttery crackers (such as Ritz, crushed) about 3/4 cup
6 oz. sharp cheddar, grated
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
4  6-oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I only had boneless, skinless thighs, and they worked fine.)
4 T. unsalted butter, melted

Heat oven to 350.
Place crackers, cheese, garlic, salt and pepper in a blender and blend well.
Melt butter in a dish and dip chicken in butter first. Then dip it in the cracker mixture, pressing gently to help it adhere, then place on a foil-lined baking sheet.

Sprinkle any remaining cracker mixture on the chicken and drizzle with any remaining butter. Bake until chicken is golden brown and cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes.

Enjoy!
