New Recipe: Cheddar Chicken

A few years ago, I came across a recipe in Real Simple magazine for Cheddar Chicken. It sounded like a delicious combination - chicken, cheese, butter, and garlic all in one dish. I showed Jesse the recipe and a few days later, he made it for us. After that, we were eating this dish once a week for a few months with Jesse making it every time (keep in mind this was in my pre-cooking days).

When I started cooking at the beginning of the year, this dish was pushed to the side so I could test out some new recipes. This past weekend Cheddar Chicken made a comeback, but it wouldn't really be the same if Jesse didn't make it... that and I decided to take the night off from cooking and serve as the sous chef and food photographer instead. Anyhow, once again, my chef of a husband and this recipe didn't disappoint.

The recipe is pretty straightforward:

Mix together crumbled crackers, cheddar cheese, salt and pepper...

Melt butter and garlic in the microwave...

Dip chicken in garlic-butter mixture and then in the cracker-cheese mixture and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes...

 Serve with a side of rice and green beans and enjoy!
