Luann's Story

You just might throw away your skillet when you taste this chicken!


2 lb
chicken tenders, or 4 large breasts
2 tube(s)
ritz crackers
1/4 tsp
1/8 tsp
1/2 c
whole milk
3 c
cheddar cheese, grated
1 tsp
dried parsley
1 can(s)
cream of chicken soup
2 Tbsp
sour cream
2 Tbsp

Directions Step-By-Step

Crush crackers. If using chicken breasts and not tenders, cut each chicken breast into 3 large pieces. Pour the milk, cheese and cracker crumbs into 3 separate small pans. Toss the salt and pepper into the cracker crumbs and stir the mixture around to combine. Dip each piece of chicken into the milk and then the cheese. Press the cheese into the chicken with your fingers. Then press the cheesy coated chicken into the cracker crumbs and press it in.
Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray and lay the chicken inside the pan. Sprinkle the dried parsley over the chicken. Cover the pan with foil and bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove the foil, bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the edges of the chicken are golden brown and crispy.
In a medium sized sauce pan combine the cream of chicken soup, sour cream and butter with a whisk. Stir it over medium high heat until the sauce is nice and hot. Serve over the chicken.

Would other crackers work such as club crackers? How about using pork chops instead of chicken?

Lauren, thaw them first if you are using frozen raw chicken breasts. Or just buy fresh raw chicken breasts. Does this answer your question?

I really want to make this! Sounds amazing! Maybe this is a dumb question- but if using chicken breasts- are they raw chicken breasts or frozen?
