This is a recipe of my dad's mother's and it's great for busy moms who don't have a lot time to cook a nice dinner for their family. It takes about 5-10 minutes to prepare and an hour to bake. Anyone can do it! Did I mention it's delicious?

How To Make memphis chicken

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and lay out your trimmed and thawed chicken breast halves.
  • 2
    Heat the butter in a microwave-safe bowl until completely melted.
  • 3
    Pour the Rice Krispie cereal onto a board (not floured) and crush them with a rolling pin until it's almost all crushed.
  • 4
    Take a piece of chicken and coat it in butter (in the bowl). Then, thoroughly coat it in the Rice Krispies until covered. Continue this strategy with the remaining pieces of chicken.
  • 5
    When all of the pieces of chicken are covered, grease a glass pan and set the chicken in it. You can drizzle the remaining butter over the chicken and sprinkle some more Rice Krispies on top.
