A great recipe for crispy chicken breaded with Ritz crackers and cheddar cheese calls for covering pieces of chicken breast with shredded cheddar and crushed crackers. After baking them uncovered at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, serve them with a cream sauce. The recipe makes eight servings, and each serving has 471 calories.
To make this recipe, grind up two sleeves of Ritz crackers in a food processor, and cut four boneless, skinless chicken breasts into large chunks. Prepare three separate trays of milk, shredded cheese and crumbled crackers, and then dip each piece of chicken into each tray. Press the cheese and the cracker crumbs into the meat to ensure that they stick. Spray a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray, and after arranging the chicken chunks in it, sprinkle them with parsley flakes and bake for 35 minutes.
As the chicken bakes, make the cream sauce by whisking a can of cream of chicken soup, 2 tablespoons of sour cream and 2 tablespoons of butter in a medium saucepan. Simmer it over medium heat until hot, and serve it over the chicken. This dish works well with a variety of sides, such as wild rice pilaf, garlic mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables. To save time on busy weeknights, make the chicken in advance, and freeze it until you are ready to cook.
