January 4: Crispy Cheddar Chicken

Again, from my favorite cooking blog "Jamie Cooks it Up" comes this highly requested favorite chicken recipe.

4 large chicken breasts
2 sleeves Ritz crackers
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 c milk
3 c grated Cheddar cheese
1 tsp dried parsley

1 can cream of chicken soup
2 TB sour cream
2 TB butter

Cut each chicken breast into 3 large chunks.  In a food processor, grind up Ritz crackers. Put the milk, cheese and cracker crumbs into 3 separate bowls or small pans. Combine the salt and pepper with the cracker crumbs. Dip each chicken chunk into the milk, then the cheese, then finally the cracker crumbs. Place chicken pieces on a sprayed baking sheet.  Sprinkle the dried parsley over the chicken pieces.  Cover the pan with foil and bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove the foil and bake the chicken 10 more minutes or until chicken is golden brown and crispy. 

In a medium size sauce pan, combine soup, sour cream and butter with a whisk. Heat until hot. Serve over chicken.
