Cheddar Fried Chicken FINAL

Make sure to repin this recipe

One of my favorite meals to make is a great fried chicken. Yesterday my husband ate 9 pieces of fried chicken I made — so I decided to try making something a little different. I really like not “frying” chicken rather I like to “bake” the chicken since it is slightly better for you. I always love serving fried chicken with some type of greens – usually whatever is seasonal.

I added some parsley on top – I also add red pepper flakes ( which is my new obsession) I tend to put red pepper flakes on pasta and chicken to give it a little extra flavor.

Cheddar Chicken Ingredients

This is everything you will need – this chicken is cooked with butter and whole lot of cheese and garlic! Everyone will love this chicken.

I ended up having an extra chicken breast after dinner was done – so I chopped up the cooked chicken the next day and added to a salad for Eric.

I love being able to use leftover the next day.

What is your favorite way to eat chicken?
