Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Serve hot.
