Crispy Cheddar Chicken

Lee Wilson


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!
