Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Pour your melted butter to coat the baking dish.
Mix the flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a bowl.
In another bowl, whisk together the egg and milk.
In a third bowl, combine the cheese, bread crumbs, and cereal.
Keep your bowls in that order and work down the line.
First, dredge your chicken in the flour mixture, dip in the eggs, then press it in the bread crumb mixture to coat.
Really push the chicken down in the bread crumbs.
Transfer to your baking dish.
Bake for 35 minutes or until coating is golden brown and chicken is done. 

This chicken was really good!  Our neighbor's son came over for dinner and he ate 2 pieces! I had quite a bit of the breading left and just scraped it over the top of the chicken and let it bake too.
