Garlic Butter Cheddar Chicken
These chicken breasts are first dipped in savory garlic butter and coated with flavorful cheddar bread crumbs. Pounding them thin gives them a wonderful texture and allows the coating to fully wrap around each bite. This is a great recipe for kids that don’t like thick or stringy chicken.
The cheddar infused crispy chicken has an Italian flair so for a super easy meal, pair the chicken with spaghetti in a red sauce. Make extras because everyone will want seconds!
1/2 cup butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
