This was one of our favorite recipes from kraftfoods.com.. However- it required the use of shake & bake. That obviously is no longer an option for us, so I set out tonight to come up with my own breading mixture It was wonderful!
Here is what you will need:
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- pepper to taste
- 2 tbsp chili powder
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 2 eggs
- 3 tbsp melted butter (optional)
- Shredded Mexican Style Cheese (I didn’t have any on hand so I used Colby Jack)
- Salsa or chopped tomatoes (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 and grease a baking dish.
Mix together flour, paprika, garlic salt, pepper and chili powder in a lg bowl and beat 2 eggs in a separate bowl.
Dip chicken in the egg (making sure any excess egg drips off) and then coat in the flour mixture, place in the grease baking dish. Pour melted butter over the chicken (this will give it the crisp brown coloring)
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
Top with Cheese and if you want you can pour the salsa or tomatoes over the cheese. Bake for 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted.
I did two with Salsa (one with Pace for my hubby and one using the Aunt Nee’s Salsa for me) and two with just cheese for the kids so have fun with this when it comes to the toppings!
