About this recipe: These crunchy chicken breasts are absolutely wonderful. They are crunchy, garlicky and very cheesy. Serve them with jacket potatoes or mash, with a side salad.


Serves: 8 

  • 115g butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 80g breadcrumbs
  • 40g Parmigiano Reggiano (Parmesan), grated
  • 200g Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 8 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets, pounded thin

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  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 breadcrumbs, parmigiano reggiano, cheddar, parsley, oregano, pepper and salt.

I have been experimenting with different recipes for chicken breasts and this one comes out tops so far. Easy to make and full of flavour. I cut down on the cheese to make it a bit healthier and it was still very tasty. Will definitely be making it again. - 02 Feb 2016
