Garlic Cheddar Chicken

I have been horrible with making menus this last month. I am just flying by the seat of my pants come dinner time these days. Usually I just make a favorite go-to repeater recipe out of whatever I have in the frig+pantry OR I get inspired by a blog in my GR on that particular day. Today it was a combination of both when I saw this chicken recipe in my friend, Alanna‘s, blog.

Chicken and cheesy goodness… How could that be bad? :)

* Calories/WW pts are for the original recipe. Any changes or substitutions may increase or decrease numbers.


2 tablespoons butter
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 C shredded cheddar cheese (I used cheddar and monterey jack blend)
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon dried parsley
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 chicken breasts, boneless skinless – pounded thin (I forgot but it baked up fine)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat, and cook the garlic until tender about 5 minutes. In a shallow bowl, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Cheddar cheese, and spices (if you used them).

Dip each chicken breast in the garlic butter to coat, then press into the bread crumb mixture. Arrange the coated chicken breasts in a 9×13 baking dish. Drizzle with any remaining butter and top with any remaining bread crumb mixture.

Bake 30 minutes in preheated oven or until chicken is no longer pink and juice run clear.

I served with baked potato and sauteed asparagus.

He raved the whole time and was sad that I had only made 2 chicken breasts so there were no 2nds! haha

    MRSABY, agreed. Of course I did the calories/points after I already ate it and was like “oh crap”. Back to the gym I go… haha.
