There are two types of great cheddar. There's the type your kids and grandkids talk about from the rap songs. (Pssttt… it means “money.”) And there's the cheddar straight outta Somerset, the cheese the US Department of Agriculture calls the most popular in the world. We're giving you Mr. Popularity featured on top of a succulent chicken breast and topped with crunchy potato sticks. We're not rich enough to say that cheese is the only cheddar we want, but after a few bites of this delightful dinner, we might reconsider.
