The only thing better than a chicken breast is this Ritz Cracker Chicken with a cheesy crispy coating and an easy homemade cheese sauce.
- 4 large chicken breasts
- 2 sleeves Ritz or Cheese-Its crackers crushed
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 teaspoon dried or fresh parsley
- 2 eggs beaten
- ½ cup milk
- 2 cups cheddar cheese
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- ½ cup evaporated milk
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.
