2. Prep Your Chicken
Dip each chicken strip into the egg mixture.
3. Coat with Cheese
Press the chicken into the cheddar mixture to coat one side with the cheese mixture.
4. Coat both sides of the chicken
Flip the chicken to the other side, press until cheese coats the chicken completely.
5. New Item
Place cheddar-coated chicken onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 18-22 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
Serve your cooked chicken with sour cream and a simple salad. Enjoy!
