Crispy Cheddar Chicken

I found this delicious recipe on Pinterest and adjusted it to fit my husband and I's likes. It turned out great and Will had 2 servings (so we know he liked it!).

Ingredients for Chicken:
  • 2 chicken breasts (I sliced them in half to make 4 fillets)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 small sleeves (or 1 large) of Ritz crackers, crushed
  • salt and pepper
  • dried parsley
Ingredients for Sauce:
  • 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
Preparation of Chicken:
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
  • Put the milk, cheese, and Ritz crackers into separate containers. Season the crackers with salt and pepper
  • Dip the chicken in milk
  • Press the chicken into the cheese. You might need to pat it onto the chicken. Some may fall off.
  • Then press the chicken into the crushed crackers. Pat down the crackers into the chicken.
  • Place chicken fillets into a greased pan (around 9x13) and sprinkle with parsley
  • Bake in the oven for 35 minutes covered with foil and then uncovered for another 10 minutes
Preparation of Sauce:
  • Melt butter in small saucepan
  • Add soup and sour cream
  • Whisk until combined and hot
  • Serve over chicken

I served the chicken with some mashed potatoes. The sauce worked great as a gravy as well! Yum :)
