At times I get tired of trying to make chicken less boring. This recipe uses cheese crackers, saltines, panko bread crumbs, and cheddar cheese to bring it to life. I think you’ll enjoy this dish.
● 4 large chicken breasts, cut into large chunks
● 1 cup of crushed cheese-its
● 1 cup of crushed saltines
● ½ cup panko bread crumbs
● 1 egg
● ½ cup milk
● 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
● ¼ cup olive oil
● 4 TBSP salted butter
● 3 TBSP flour
● salt, pepper, and garlic powder, to taste.
● 1 tsp parsley
● ¼ tsp sage
● 2 cups hot water
● 2 tsp condensed chicken base
● ½ cup heavy cream
● ¼ cup sour cream
1 Coat chicken in egg wash, dip into cheese and press cheese onto chicken. Move carefully to the bread crumb/cracker mixture and coat with crumbs. Place in prepared baking pan. Repeat until all chicken is coated.
2 Drizzle lightly with olive oil. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink.
3 While chicken is baking, prepare sauce by melted butter in a large pan. Add the flour and whisk to eliminate any lumps. Cook over medium-low heat for 2-3 minutes.
4 Add salt, pepper, and garlic salt to taste. Add 1 tsp dried parsley and ¼ tsp sage.
5 Add hot water and condensed chicken base to the sauce pan and cook until mixture is thickened. Add the heavy cream and sour cream and stir to combine.
