Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Hiland Butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons Minced Garlic (can use more or less to your taste)
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder, divided (garlic lovers can use more)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Seasoning Salt (or you can use White Salt)
  • 3/4 cup Dry Bread Crumbs (Seasoned or Plain)
  • 1/2 cup Finely Grated Hiland Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon Coarse Ground Black Pepper (or to taste)
  • 4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Butter an 11 x 7-inch baking dish (if using more than 4 breasts use a larger pan).
  • In a bowl, combine melted butter with fresh minced garlic, 1 teaspoon garlic powder and salt.
  • In another bowl, combine the dry breadcrumbs with 1/2 cup finely grated Hiland Cheddar Cheese, Parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon garlic powder and coarse ground black pepper.
  • Dip chicken in butter mixture; then in crumb mixture.
  • 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).
  • Top with shredded Hiland Cheddar or Mozzarella the last 5 minutes of cooking (optional).
