  • Ritz Cracker Chicken


    RITZ CRACKER CHICKEN

    INGREDIENTS

    4 large chicken breasts (4 b/s thighs)
    2 sleeves Ritz or Cheese-Its crackers crushed (1 sleeve)
    teaspoon garlic powder(same)
    2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (1 cup)
    1 teaspoon dried or fresh parsley (same)
    2 eggs beaten (1 egg)
    cup milk (1/4 cup)

    CHEESE SAUCE

    2 cups cheddar cheese (1 cup)
    2 teaspoons cornstarch (1 tsp)
    cup evaporated milk (1/4 cup)

    INSTRUCTIONS
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.


    Cut chicken breasts into 3 equal pieces.

    Crush crackers. Toss with cheddar cheese and garlic powder. Combine milk and beaten eggs in a separate small bowl.


    Dip the chicken into the egg mixture and then into the cheese & crackers. Repeat until all the chicken pieces are coated.


    Once coated, gently dip the chicken pieces into the egg mixture a second time and then into the crumbs again gently pressing the crumbs to adhere.


    Place on a baking sheet and sprinkle with parsley.

    Bake 25-30 minutes or until chicken reaches 165 degrees F.


    CHEESE SAUCE
    Toss cheddar cheese and cornstarch in a small bowl. Add evaporated milk and microwave 45 seconds. ( I did it on stovetop)

    Stir and microwave in 30-second increments until thick and creamy (about 90 seconds total).

    Charlene’s notes 9-1-2022: I made about a half recipe using 4 boneless skinless thighs. Half recipe amounts are in parentheses. I loved the chicken, but I don’t think I’d bother making the cheese sauce again. The chicken itself was excellent.
