Cheddar Baked Chicken

My sister-in-law is known for this chicken, and after doing some research, it looks like it's a recipe originally found on It tastes like chicken covered in Cheezits (now that's an idea!). I don't normally make baked chicken dishes all that often - too predictable for my taste - but I would make this 100x over in a heartbeat. You can serve it with a baked potato, rice, or veggies. Or whatever.

What I'm trying to say is it's good with anything.


  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 pouch Shake 'n Bake Extra Crispy
  • 1 cup Rice Krispies
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in halves


Melt the 1/4 cup butter and spread in baking dish. I chose to use this round dish, but if you're making more than 2 chicken breasts, I suggest using a 13x9 pan.

In one bowl, mix the flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder.

In a separate bowl, beat together the egg and milk.

In a third bowl, mix the cheese, bread crumbs and cereal.

Get your assembly line in order {flour, egg, breadcrumbs}.

Dip chicken pieces in the flour mixture...

...then drench in the egg mixture...

...then press into the breadcrumb mixture to coat.

Arrange in the prepared baking dish. Drizzle 2 more tablespoons butter evenly over chicken.

Bake 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until coating is golden brown and chicken juices run clear.

That's it! Super easy. And yummy. And isn't that why we're all here?

Love and yumm,
