Use different cheeses for maximum taste


Make sure your chicken thighs are a similar size so they cook in the same amount of time. (You can pound some out so they are an even thickness if needed.) If using chicken breasts it will take 40-45 minutes. If you have small or thin ones, check for doneness starting around 30 to 35 minutes.


  •  Add a simple side salad or some steamed broccoli, asparagus or green beans for an easy vegetable side dish.


  •  You can also slice this chicken and serve it over a big salad or in a wrap for a light meal. Drizzle everything with your favorite sauce or dressing and yum.


  • I do not recommend freezing this chicken. The cheesy exterior won’t stand up to the freezing and thawing process.


  •  I recommend using a drier cheese, such as Parmesan or a sharp cheddar. It will cling to your chicken much more successful.


Next time you have a few chicken thighs and you don’t know what to make with them, give these cheesy chicken thighs a try.
