These are wonderful -- "a definite keeper", says my husband! I actually found this recipe on the back of a bag of cheese... I think it was Sargento. I thought I would beat someone to posting it, but I guess not. :) I made these up yesterday and served Recipe #199763 and a rice pilaf with almonds alongside. A definite hit with our dinner guests and our family!

Directions

  1. Melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high heat in large skillet . Add mushrooms, onion and garlic; cook 7 minutes or until vegetables are tender and liquid is evaporated, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cool slightly.

Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter; dip chicken into butter and roll in crumbs. Place in lightly greased shallow baking dish or pie plate; drizzle with remaining melted butter.
  3. Bake in preheated 450°F oven 20 minutes or until golden brown and chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 3 minutes more or until cheese is melted. Remove wooden picks before serving.
