Cheddar Chicken

I found this recipe in Real Simple magazine and tried it right away. It was a hit at our house plus very quick and easy! As a side note, I love love Real Simple magazine and their website. If you haven't had the pleasure of this resource before, I highly recommend it for tips, recipes, and great articles.

What You Need:
16 buttery crackers (such as Ritz), crushed (about 3⁄4 cup)
6 ounces sharp Cheddar, grated (I am a fan of Tillamook brand)
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
salt and black pepper
4 6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Heat oven to 350° F. In a bowl, combine the crackers, cheese, garlic, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper.
Dip the chicken in the butter, then in the cracker mixture, pressing gently to help it adhere, and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle any remaining cracker mixture on the chicken and drizzle with any remaining butter. Bake until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes.
