Barbeque Cheddar Crusted Chicken

     Here's another super easy recipe that comes together in minutes and can be made for as many servings as you like.  This Barbecue Cheddar Crusted Chicken from Hellman's has that trio of flavors and textures that just can't be beat, mayonnaise, barbecue sauce and cheese.  Top it off with a generous sprinkling of Panko crumbs and you're guaranteed to have a crispy coating to your juicy chicken breasts.  I baked these at 400 degrees in my 10 inch dutch oven with 10 coals in a ring around the bottom and covered the top with 18-20 coals.  They were tender and cooked through in 35 minutes.  Depending on the size of your chicken pieces you may need to adjust the cooking time.  I also added more Cheddar because, as we all know, you can never have too much cheese.  Simple, delicious and a great recipe for home or campfire cooking.
