A lot of crispy baked chicken recipes use things like breadcrumbs or cracker crumbs. Here, the croûtons add a little flavor.



  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Combine butter, seasonings, and salt in a pie plate or a large wide dish.
  3. Dip chicken into egg mixture then dredge into croûton crumbs. Let rest 2–3 minutes.
  4. Coat chicken pieces on olive oil then place on a greased baking pan.
  5. Insert a probe thermometer into one of the pieces, and bake in the oven until internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  6. Sprinkle chicken pieces evenly with cheese and bake until cheese is melted. Serve warm.
