Ritz Cracker Chicken with Cheddar Cheese and Cream Sauce
Ritz Cracker Chicken is an easy and deliciously moist boneless, skinless chicken breast covered in melty cheddar cheese and delicious Ritz crackers. Plus the cream sauce brings this entire dish together to create a home run dinner that everyone in your family will love and put on the menu monthly.
Preheat oven to 400 and grease a cast iron pan or baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
First, you can decide to cut chicken into smaller pieces and slice down the middle if your breasts are super large. The smaller you make your chicken, the less cooking time you may need so please be aware to adjust times if you cut down into strips or down the middle.
Add crushed Ritz crackers, salt and pepper, and mix spices and crackers well in a shallow bowl.
Add milk to a shallow bowl and shredded cheddar cheese to a separate bowl. You will be dipping the chicken in these bowls, so do not combine.
Dip chicken into milk first, making sure both sides are covered.
Dip chicken into shredded cheese and press the cheese into the chicken on both sides.
Now dip into crushed Ritz crackers and press the crackers into both sides of the chicken breasts. Some of the cheese will fall off into the crackers and that's okay.
As you finish coating chicken, please chicken into prepared pan.
Repeat recipe process until all chicken is covered and pan is full.
Cover chicken with foil and bake for 35 minutes.
Remove foil and discard.
Return chicken to oven for 10 more minutes until crispy, melty, and golden brown.
Serve topped with cream sauce (recipe below)
Chicken Cream Sauce
To make the sauce, add cream of chicken soup, sour cream and butter to a small saucepan.
Heat sauce over low heat, stirring occasionally until blended well and hot. This only takes a few minutes.
Drizzle sauce on chicken and sprinkle with parsley before serving.
SUBSTITUTIONS: You can substitute heavy whipping cream or half and half in place of milk
