Let’s say my favorite people are coming over and I want to treat them with a dinner they will love and feel spoiled to have eaten. Or perhaps my grands are coming over for a sleepover and I want food that will make them eat every last bite. Or let’s say it’s been a rough week and I need comfort food at it’s finest.
I’m gonna make this Crispy Cheese Chicken.
It’s probably the best chicken you’ll ever make! Crispy Cheese chicken is moist, tender chicken baked inside a buttery, crispy, cheese cracker coating that I’m willing to guarantee you will love!
I’ve been making this about as long as I’ve been married, and it’s still an all-time favorite. I’ve made it for company, for moms who just had babies, and of course as a staple in our family meal-plan when the kids were younger. Because it uses just a few ingredients and is so everyone-friendly, I have a feeling it will go into your rotation as well.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Next, crush at least half of a box of cheese crackers (I’ve used all the kinds from nips to organic to goldfish!) in a bag using a rolling pin. I don’t like them too finely crushed because some of the big chunks make me happy. Put the crushed crackers in a shallow dish.
Next, put about a cup of sour cream into another shallow dish.
Cut 1.5 pounds of chicken into strips or of course you can buy them already cut. Salt and pepper each piece of chicken. Roll each piece into the sour cream to coat it and then into the crackers to thoroughly coat and set them into a 9×13″ baking dish.
Drizzle 1/2 c. of melted butter over all of the chicken and bake for 30 minutes or so or until the chicken is at 160 degrees when tested with a meat thermometer and the crackers are golden brown.
And here’s a pro-tip from decades of experience. When you dish your own plate, make sure you get extra of those buttery, crunchy cheese crackers that landed in the bottom of the baking dish all for yourself. You’re welcome. ;o)
