Crispy Cheddar Chicken: The Absolute Best Recipe For Dinner

The chicken is a favorite of ours, but the sauce is simply divine!

It can be difficult to come up with new weeknight meals. I tend to stick to familiar favorites that everyone will enjoy. Chicken is a favorite choice because it offers a wide variety of flavors and is easy to prepare. Although this recipe for crispy cheddar chicken may not be new, it will surely satisfy my hungry family on a busy weeknight.

Serves 4
45 minutes



2 lbs boneless skinless chicken tenders or breasts
2 sleeves butter crackers, such as Ritz
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons milk
2 eggs, beaten

For the sauce:

1 can cream of chicken soup
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 tablespoons butter
Milk, as needed


Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan with nonstick spray.

Use chicken breasts to cut into two or three large pieces.

Pulse cheese, garlic powder, salt, pepper and parsley in a food processor until you get fine crumbs

Mix the milk and eggs in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the cheese/cracker mixture.

Dip the pieces of chicken in the egg mixture. Next, dip them in the cracker mix. Finally, press in the crumbs to coat.

Spray a thin coating of cooking spray on the chicken and place it in a prepared pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Cover the dish with foil. Bake for 10 minutes longer or until chicken is crispy and golden brown.

While the sauce is cooking, heat the butter and chicken soup in a saucepan. You can add milk to your preference until you reach the desired consistency.

Enjoy with chicken!
