what you need
  • 2 cups Italian flavored bread crumbs
  • 4 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1-2 eggs
  • 8 uncooked chicken breasts or cutlets
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
make it
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Light spray/grease casserole dish. Mix bread crumbs and 3 cups of cheese together in a shallow bowl or plate. Whisk egg in another shallow bowl or plate. Dip each piece of chicken in egg then breadcrumb and cheese mixture until fully coated.

Roll chicken in a ball and place in casserole dish. Repeat until all chicken is done. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top of all chicken - be generous. Add more cheese if desired. Melt butter and drizzle over chicken and cheese.

Bake for 35-45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
You can make this dish for as little or as large a party you need and can adapt the amount of bread crumbs and cheese as you work with the chicken. The amounts listed above are just estimates as I never measure it out and just use what I need to use.
