Cheddar Chicken

Tonight for dinner, I made a new recipe from Real Simple magazine called Cheddar Chicken. I didn't make the rice it called for, just a side of green beans. But it was delicious! I highly recommend it for lunch or dinner (and it is relatively easy with a quick clean up!).

Serves 4
Hands-On Time: 15m
Total Time: 45m

16 buttery crackers (such as Ritz), crushed (about 3⁄4 cup)
6 ounces sharp Cheddar, grated
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
kosher salt and black pepper
4 6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
wild rice pilaf and steamed green beans (optional)

1. Heat oven to 350° F. In a bowl, combine the crackers, cheese, garlic, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper.
2. Dip the chicken in the butter, then in the cracker mixture, pressing gently to help it adhere, and place on a foil-lined baking sheet.
3. Sprinkle any remaining cracker mixture on the chicken and drizzle with any remaining butter. Bake until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes.
