Yummy Chicken

In case you weren't sure, this recipe was named by Jack.

I love this chicken. It's so simple and quite delicious. Figure friendly? Not so much. But did I mention that it was delicious? Also, if you're only cooking for two, it's so easy to modify for fewer than 4. My only regret is that I made it when Kyle was out of town so he didn't get to try it.

I modified it from a recipe that I found online a few weeks ago, and I can't remember where. So if you're thinking, "This loser stole my recipe!" you might be right.

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 sleeve of Ritz crackers
  • 2 tsp or so of garlic salt . . . less if you want a more mild flavor, more if you really like garlic
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter
Beat eggs. Crush ritz crakers and mix with garlic salt in separate dish. Oh, and I actually added panko to the cracker mixture, too . . . I'm not sure if it was necessary because the crackers were so crunchy, but I like to think it helped.

Dip each piece of chicken in egg, then the cracker mixture. Press the crackers into the chicken.

Place the chicken in a shallow baking dish and put a thin pat or two of butter on each piece of chicken until the full 1/4 cup is used. Bake at 375 for 40 minutes.

Jack cleaned his plate . . . as did I.
