Breaded Cheddar Chicken

 I finally have a new recipe up. I apologize for the long delay. What happened was, I am pregnant now, and for the first few months, I have been so exhausted that even when I did have the energy to cook, taking the extra steps to type the recipe, take the pictures, etc. was too much. Combined with the fact that I was having some food aversions and only wanted to eat the same things for awhile, it just really wasn't the best time to be blogging about food. But, now, I am in my second trimester, I am feeling better, and for now it seems the aversions are gone, so I am back at it again, Unfortunately, I missed the holiday season, which is a great time for cooking, but I will get over than and just move on to more new recipes.
So, here is a delicious one I made last week...

Breaded Cheddar Chicken
2 cups Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 egg
2 Tablespoons milk
4 uncooked chicken breasts
4 Tablespoons butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray non-stick cooking spray in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Mix breadcrumbs and 1 cup of the cheese in a bowl. In another bowl, whisk together egg and milk. Dip the chicken in the egg/ milk mixture, then roll in the breadcrumb mixture. Lay in the baking dish. Top each chicken breast with remaining cheese. Drizzle melted butter over the top. Bake for 40 minutes.
