I had run out of my normal coating (Shake N Bake) to use in a quick pinch so I decided to use what I had on hand. This is a fun, quick and easy dish to make, and fun for the kids to help out. I made this with my niece (5) and her sister (2), they both loved it!

How to Make Crunchy Cheesy Chicken


  1. Preheat Oven to 425.
  2. In a gallon size storage bag combine all ingredients except last 2 (I put the crackers in whole). Seal bag and crush crackers while mixing all the ingredients together by shaking. Leave some of the crackers in bigger crumbs so you have a crispier chicken
  3. In small bowl beat the egg. On medium plate put enough flour to coat all 4 breasts. Coat breasts, dip in egg and drop 2 at a time in the bag with the coating. Shake until well coated.
  4. Spray a 9x9 baking dish with cooking spray, place chicken in baking dish and bake at 425 for 45 mins.
