parmesan chicken {a recipe}


Well, it's official. I suck at taking pictures of food. I don't know how people have mastered the art of taking mouth-watering pictures of food, because I took like 20 pictures and they're all horrible! Oh well :)


Parmesan Chicken

Chicken (I use chicken tenders)
Butter (Or plain yogurt for a healthier version)
Ritz or Saltine crackers (I use ritz because they are easier to smash and I feel like they stick to the chicken a little easier.)
Parmesan cheese

Melt butter in a bowl big enough for dipping. While butter is melting, crush crackers into tiny pieces. Mix equal parts crushed crackers and parmesan cheese in another bowl big enough for dipping. Dip thawed chicken first in butter, then in the parmesan mixture. Lay on cookie sheet and bake in oven for 25 minutes at 350. (If you use chicken breast you will need to bake 35-45 minutes.) 

I got this recipe from my mom and I love it! It's a super easy dinner and Eric requests it all the time! Definitely a recipe I plan to keep around forever :)

That's one of my FAVORITE recipes! try it sometime with mayo instead of butter... sounds weird, but SO good! :)

Carlie said...

Yum! Sounds easy and delicious!

Thanks for sharing! I love recipes that don't have 16 ingredients that I don't carry at my house :) Butter, ritz, chicken & cheese. Perfect!

I do similar recipes. For Honey Crusted Chicken I dip it in honey and then in either smashed saltines or Panko, mixed with some paprika. For Italian baked chicken I dip it in creamy italian dressing (I prefer Parmesan dressing, but it's harder to find...you can also use an egg instead) and then in Italian breadcrumbs. All SO good and so easy! Thanks for sharing! :)
