Crispy Cheddar Chicken

If you’re a food snob, you might as well leave now.  This is a canned soup recipe.  However, if you’d like to hear more about the only meat dish that everyone in my family gobbles up and asks for more of, stick around.  Even my child who doesn’t usually like meat cleans his plate.  I’m thinking it has something to do with the cheesy Ritz cracker crumb coating.

The recipe as written makes quite a bit of crumb coating–probably enough for 6-8 chicken breasts.  So consider using extra chicken, or using less crumbs.  I’d go with extra chicken, since I never seem to make enough of this to satisfy everyone.

Ingredients
Chicken
  1. 4 large chicken breasts
  2. 1 sleeve Ritz crackers
  3. 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
  4. 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  5. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  6. 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  7. 2 eggs, beaten
  8. 2 tablespoons milk
Sauce
  1. 1 (14 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
  2. 2 tablespoons sour cream
  3. 2 tablespoons butter
  4. 1/4 cup milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut each chicken breast into 2 or 3 large chunks.
  3. In a food processor combine the Ritz crackers, grated cheese, parsely, salt and pepper. Pulse a few times to form crumbs.
  4. In a shallow dish, stir together the beaten eggs and milk. Dip the chicken pieces in the egg/milk mixture, then in the cracker crumb mixture, pressing the crumbs on to coat well.
  5. Place the coated chicken in a 9x13 pan coated with cooking spray. Spray the top of the chicken with a thin, even layer of cooking spray.
  6. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the edges of the chicken are golden brown and crispy.
  7. To make sauce, combine the cream of chicken soup, sour cream and butter with a whisk in a medium saucepan.
  8. Cook and stir over medium high heat until the sauce hot.
  9. Stir in milk until sauce reaches desired consistency. Serve over the chicken.
