Heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with the cooking spray. Place the croutons into a gallon size resealable plastic bag. Seal the bag and crush the croutons with a rolling pin.
Beat the egg in a shallow dish with a fork or whisk. Dip the chicken into the egg. Add the chicken to the bag. Seal the bag and shake to coat. Place the chicken onto the baking sheet. Spray the chicken with the cooking spray.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and sprinkle with the cheese.
Serving Suggestion:

Serve with Pepperidge Farm® Texas Toast, spaghetti, green beans and Pepperidge Farm® cookies for dessert.

You can substitute your favorite Pepperidge Farm® croutons for the Four Cheese and Garlic.
