Sleezy Chicken...

Not sure why this delicious dish has this name... a college joke, perhaps, but, it didn't keep Frog Prince from making these tasty chops for dinner! Frog Prince even took the great pictures to go with :)

Parmesan Cheesy Chicken (aka Sleezy Chicken) - Modified from Lana
(this recipe is for 2 chicken breasts, but Lana has directions for more)

2 T butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 C bread crumbs (we used heals from our homemade bread)
1/2 C grated cheddar cheese, divided

2-4 T grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp. Italian seasoning

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a blender, finely blend about 1-2 slices of day-old bread. When finely crumbed, add in Italian seasoning (we use salt-free), pepper, and Parmesan cheese.

Prepare grated extra-sharp cheddar cheese, and add about 1/4 C to the bread crumb mixture.

Add cheddar cheese to the bread crumb mixture.

Meanwhile, heat 2 T butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add in 2 garlic cloves, minced, and allow the garlic to cook as the butter melts.

Dip the chicken into the butter/garlic mix, and then coat thoroughly with the bread crumb mix. [Lana says that you can freeze the chicken for later use at this point]

Place chicken in a large baking dish.

Drizzle any remaining butter/garlic sauce over the chicken and sprinkle with any remaining crumbs. Frog Prince also topped the chicken with additional Parmesan cheese... (or so I learned through the photographic evidence).

Bake chicken until juices run clear and internal temps reach 180; about 45-60 minutes.

About 5 minutes before serving, remove chicken from the oven and add the remaining 1/4 C cheese to the top.

Cook until cheese is melted.

Serve with green veggies for a delicious meal.

This was absolutely delicious and a rather "light" breaded chicken. Frog Prince and I both really enjoyed it. I think Lana's idea of preparing the chicken and then freezing them is great -- just pop 'em out of the freezer and into the oven... makes for a great quick and easy meal.


  1. That sleezy chicken looks great. Next time I get chicken breasts I think this is at the top of the cue!

  2. I looked through your recipes for something to make for tonight because we decided to eat in . . . I really wanted to use some of the chicken I got from Sam's and had all these ingredients. It's in the oven as I type. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thanks for sharing these fun recipes :-D

  3. This looks like something hubs would love. Will try it next week.

  4. This is delicious!! Thanks for the recipe! YUM!! We LOVE it! :)

    1. Thanks, Kim! You've reminded me we haven't had this dish in a while... and now... well, now I'm hungry for it! Glad you enjoyed it.
