Baked Cheddar Chicken (Gluten-Free)

Moist, tender chicken coated in a crispy, baked, cheese coating? Could a girl ask for more? Uh… yes, seconds please! LOL I wanted to try something different, and I needed something quick for dinner. Again, I’m LOVING the disposable bowls for this, no cleanup! YAY! These are super easy and fast to make. You could turn these dairy free by using soy cheese instead, but this is one that I just had to splurge on! The cheese kinda melts and then bakes and you get this wonderful crunchy baked cheese on the edges. Mmmmm. I also added some dried parsley to the coating, just to make it pretty! The thinner you can get your chicken the better. The only chicken they had at the store was realllly thick and even slicing it in half they were still really thick, so mine took like 50 minutes to cook thru, but it was still nice and moist. I would start with the 30 minutes and then check temps and go from there. So, we’re taking a break from the kitchen reno and gettin away for a long weekend. About to hit the road….. and I’m not even packed yet (typical woman right?) but I just had to share this before I left! LOL  Hope you all have a great weekend and when I get back I’ll have some more amazing recipes to share! Enjoy! 🙂
