Garlic Cheddar Chicken

I was lurking on the What's Cooking board over on The Nest and came across this recipe on the Good Eats 'n Sweet Treats blog.

The recipe can also be found over on All Recipes. This was so simple to make and so good! Jim was surprised at how good it was since it was so easy to make. We'll definitely be making this again. Click here for the actual recipe which serves 8. I changed the All Recipes recipe to feed two, but we had some GIANT chicken breasts, so belows rendition can be used for bigger chicken breasts.

2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. olive oil
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
6 tablespoons Italian bread crumbs
3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded thin

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Melt the butter and olive oil in a saucepan over low heat, and cook the garlic until tender, about 5 minutes. In a shallow bowl, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Cheddar cheese and pepper. 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 (or on a rack on a baking sheet). Drizzle with any remaining butter and top with any remaining bread crumb mixture. Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. Enjoy!
