Oven-Fried Chicken

Yesterday's Blog Hop theme (Favorite Recipe) was so much fun! So much so that I had to share another of my favorite recipes with you (maybe this will be a regular feature, who knows!).

Anyhoo ... this is one of Hubby's and my favorite baked chicken recipes. Hubby doesn't even like baked chicken, but he really enjoys this one! Bon Appetit!

Oven-Fried Chicken

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 egg
1/2 cup sour cream
1 sleeve Ritz crackers

In shallow dish, mix together egg and sour cream.

Empty Ritz crackers into a gallon-size ziploc bag and seal. Crush crackers in bag until well broken (you don't want a powder, but you don't want big chunks, either). Place crushed crackers in 2nd shallow dish, next to sour cream mixture.

Use a paper towel to dry off chicken as much as possible. One at a time, dip chicken breasts first in the sour cream mixture (front and back), then in the crushed crackers (front and back). Make sure to coat them well. Lay on foil-lined baking pan (either spray foil with Pam, or use Reynolds Release).

Bake at 400 degrees, for 40 - 50 minutes, or until chicken is done.

*Variations: To the crushed crackers, stir in a small amount of a favorite seasoning (ie: parsley and a dash of cayene pepper; or a favorite flavor of Ms. Dash) before coating chicken to give it an extra oompf :)

This dish goes well with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli ... man, this is making me hungry!
