Baked Cheddar Chicken is easy and delicious. Serve this one with mashed potatoes and peas, with a lemon meringue pie for dessert.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: Serves 6


  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup dried bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup crushed cornflakes cereal
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. On plate, combine flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. In shallow bowl, beat together egg, milk, sour cream, melted butter, and garlic. Then on another plate, combine cheese, bread crumbs, crushed cereal, Parmesan cheese, and thyme.

Dredge chicken breasts in flour mixture and shake off excess. Then dip into the egg mixture. Finally, press into cheese mixture to coat.

Crispy, flavorful, yummy!, Guest Amy

This chicken is a family favorite. I'll sometimes use other cheeses, but always come back to cheddar. This is wonderful with mashed potatoes, peas, and a green salad. Yummy!!
