FAMOUS BUTTER CHICKEN

FAMOUS BUTTER CHICKEN (AKA, RITZ CRACKER CHICKEN)

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup crushed Ritz crackers or similar butter crackers
  • 1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • pepper to taste

Directions :

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly sprays a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Place crushed crackers in a medium-size shallow bowl, add garlic salt, and pepper – mix. Place eggs (beaten) in another separate medium-size shallow bowl. Dip one chicken breast at a time in the eggs coating well, then dredge in the cracker crumbs, coating well on all sides. Place chicken breasts side-by-side in a baking dish. *Top chicken evenly with pieces of butter.

Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until the chicken is ready and the internal temperature has reached a safe minimum of 165 degrees F internal temperature.

Serve with your favorite veggies, rice, potatoes, salad, and more. Enjoy!

TIP:

*The recipe calls for placing the butter around the chicken, but I opted to place the butter on top of the chicken – it turned out wonderful! Add your favorite poultry seasonings for extra flavor (garlic/onion powder and more).

ENJOY!
