Servings: 6 servings
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 2 pounds)
- 1 cup crushed Ritz crackers about 24 crackers
- 4 ounces Parmesan Cheese shredded
- 1 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
- 2 tablespoons Ranch Dressing
- 2 teaspoons garlic salt
In a seal-able plastic bag, gently pound chicken until it's uniform in thickness. Slice breasts in half, if desired.
In a food processor, pulse together crackers, shredded Parmesan and dried parsley. (alternatively, you could crush the crackers by hand and stir together with the cheese and parsley.
Spray a 9"x13" pan with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Place chicken in the pan and sprinkle with garlic salt.
Brush chicken evenly with Ranch dressing, then sprinkle cracker mixture on top. Press the cracker mixture into the chicken lightly with your hands.
Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes. Tops should be golden brown. If additional browning time is needed, place chicken under the broiler for a couple minutes.
