parmesan crusted chicken

serves 4--prep time 10 minutes--cook time 2 hours

this is a family favorite for Sunday dinner...super easy and delish!


1 cube butter melted

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese {approximately}

1 sleeve crackers, crushed into crumbs{ i have used MANY different types from Ritz to Soda and even Wheat thins...sometimes even a combination of a few types depending on what I have...they all work!}

4-6 chicken breasts

salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. i usually put my butter in a small shallow dish and place it in the oven while it is preheating to melt it. Put you crackers into a large Ziploc baggie and crush it into crumbs. add Parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper. pour crumb mixture onto a plate.

take your melted butter out. now dip your chicken into the butter. then roll the chicken in the cracker mixture until coated. place chicken into a baking dish.

pop it into the oven covered and bake for about 2 hours.

***a little twist...i do like to change it up sometimes by adding some fresh herbs {rosemary or thyme} or even some minced garlic and some times a combination of these. also a couple tips for left overs...serve it on a green salad or make a sandwich out of crusty bread. yummm...
