Crispy Cheddar Chicken
Yield: 4 SERVINGS
Prep time: 10 MINUTES
Cook time: 35 MINUTES
Total time: 45 MINUTES
- 4 large chicken breasts
- 1 sleeve Ritz crackers
- 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 (14 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup milk
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Cut each chicken breast into 2 or 3 large chunks.
- In a food processor combine the Ritz crackers, grated cheese, parsely, salt and pepper. Pulse a few times to form crumbs.
- In a shallow dish, stir together the beaten eggs and milk. Dip the chicken pieces in the egg/milk mixture, then in the cracker crumb mixture, pressing the crumbs on to coat well.
- Place the coated chicken in a 9×13 pan coated with cooking spray. Spray the top of the chicken with a thin, even layer of cooking spray.
- Cover the pan with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the edges of the chicken are golden brown and crispy.
- To make sauce, combine the cream of chicken soup, sour cream and butter with a whisk in a medium saucepan.
- Cook and stir over medium high heat until the sauce hot.
- Stir in milk until sauce reaches desired consistency. Serve over the chicken.
