Cheddar is better… especially with this cheesy baked chicken recipe!

Pull together a few basic ingredients, most of which you probably already have in your pantry and fridge. Booyeah, baby! It's a pantry meal extraordinaire!
Slice chicken breasts into three pieces. This will help your recipe cook more quickly, and make it easy to serve up the perfect serving sizes for tots and adults sitting at your dinner table tonight.
Whisk egg whites in one bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the bread crumbs and cheese.
It gets easy peasy from here on out. Like, caveman easy. Dip chicken in the eggwhites, then into the cheesy bread-crumb mixture. Place the chicken pieces in a parchment-lined baking dish.
Bake those babies until golden brown and pretty as a picture.
While the chicken bakes, start your creamy cheese sauce, then cover it and set it aside until serving time. Feel free to add more broth to thin the sauce to your desired drizzling consistency. Give it a quick stir before you plate up your chicken.
Top chicken with cheese sauce. Grab fork. Feed mouth. Grunt with cheddar pleasure.
