This was posted on facebook and I was so glad I saved it. Everyone loved it and couldn't get enough. It wasn't too easy getting the cheese to stick to the chicken, so I just held it on with my fingers as I placed it in the crackers. It then stayed on the chicken. LOL!

How to Make Crispy Cheddar Chicken

  4. Toss the salt and pepper into the cracker crumbs and stir to combine.

  8. Sprinkle the dried parsley over the chicken. Cover the pan with aluminum foil.

  10. In a medium size sauce pan, combine the cream of chicken soup, sour cream and butter. Blend well with a wire whisk.
  11. Stir it over medium high heat until the sauce is nice and hot. Spoon over the finished chicken and serve.
