  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 8 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded thin
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat, and cook the garlic until tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. In a shallow bowl, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, parsley, oregano, pepper, and salt.
  4. Dip each chicken breast in the garlic butter to coat, then press into the bread crumb mixture. Arrange the coated chicken breasts in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Drizzle with any remaining butter and top with any remaining bread crumb mixture.
  5. Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

I served the Garlic Cheddar Chicken with a baked potato with sour cream and green onions. I also served a salad to go with it. Great dinner!

Yes, I went a bit overboard with the dressing. Oops.

This morning’s breakfast was pineapple Chobani, the last of my Nutella Granola and strawberries.

Don’t worry…I’m working on another granola recipe!

I took the kids to school, went to spin class and then to Target. Lunch was the last of all my Greek leftovers: Marinated Lamb Kebabs, Greek Salad, and Easy Tzatziki (recipe is coming).

I picked up my daughter from school. I will be picking my son up later this afternoon from a play date. The rest of the day will be spent getting random stuff done around the house. Exciting! :)

Have a great rest of your day!

How many nights a week do you cook dinner?


  1. That chicken sounds awesome!!! I am putting that on my dinner list for next week. Oh, and I cook dinner at least 4 nights a week (after working 10 hrs or so). My husband thinks I'm nuts, but cooking makes me feel good.

  2. I cook 6 nights usually. I don't make anything too complex during the week after work, but I usually do my meal plan on Fridays and grocery shop Sat AM. We average going out to dinner 2x month.
