Ingredients

● 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

Instructions

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.
