Cheese Crusted Chicken

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by bmxmama

I am posting the original recipe that I received but I have changed things when I didn't have them on hand such as the cheese, I've used a mixture of Parmesan and mild cheddar. And I never seem to have time to flatten them so I just just browned them first and then cook them in the oven to finish them off.

* Reviewed for Australian/NZ Forum August 2007 Recipe Swap* We loved our chicken done this way. I used gluten-free flour and GF breadcrumbs. The chicken was so tender and the crust mixture tasted divine. Thanks for sharing a great recipe. Photo also being posted
