Parmesan Crusted Chicken

This is a delicious way to fix chicken!  I came across the recipe at "SnoWhite's" Finding Joy in My Kitchen and I am sooo glad I did.

I love her blog title - and am always finding J-O-Y in my more
ways than one.  (My middle name is Joy =)

Please check out her recipe as she gives some 'extra' instructions for cooking the rice and a sauce to go with the dish too.

I found some chicken tenders in the freezer and they cooked up perfectly.

A simple and very tasty recipe!

This recipe was inspired by Kraft Foods


6-8 Ritz or Club Crackers
(I used a mixture of chicken in a biscuit & some whole wheat crackers)
2 Tb. parmesan cheese
2 Tb. olive oil
4 chicken breasts
(or 8 tenders)

Crush crackers and combine with parmesan in a bag or on a plate.

Rinse the chicken in water and then coat with cracker mixture.

Heat olive oil over medium heat in large skillet.  Place the chicken in the skillet and cook for about 5 - 7 minutes on a side.

Check chicken after about 5 minutes as you don't want the crackers to burn. Try not to flip early because that reduces the cheese melting and crackers toasting, which makes an excellent crust on the chicken.

(You can also bake the chicken tenders at 400* for about 25 - 30 minutes, turning over halfway through baking time) 

Serve with rice and a vegetable and you will enjoy every bite!

I'm sure it won't be long and we'll enjoy this again.
