This is an easy and delicious recipe! I substituted garlic powder for the minced garlic, and I used Ritz original crackers. I doubled the recipe for my family of four and I wished I had made more. I also made the garden vegetable rice recipe on this site as a side dish. It was an excellent combination. I will definitely be adding this to our family favorites.

Just tried this tonight and it was really good! The kids enjoyed it and it was very easy to make. I added a bit of salt to mine at the table - one of my vices - but otherwise very tasty. I would definitely make it again! A simple way to serve chicken!

Substituting plain yogurt for butter, a combo of multigrain crackers & Panko (50/50) along with low fat Mozzarella/Parmesan (50/50), I upped the nutrition, cut the salt and fat. Also added 1 tsp Tumeric which doesn't alter flavor (to me). but adds another healthy spice. Served with: mashed cauliflower that used low fat soy milk, green onions, combo low fat ricotta/parmesan, tumeric, paprika, white pepper and carmalized onion topping. Fresh salad of dandelion/spinach/baby lettuces, cucumber, zucchini, artichoke hearts and oven roasted beets/red & yellow peppers, pine & pistaschio nuts on top. Dressing: Dijon, brown mustard, olive oil, white (or champagne) vinegar & pepper flakes. Because each dish was uber packed with healthy ingredients, portion sizes were very small, but everyone felt full/satisfied. Packed leftovers in containers guests brought with reheating instructions, recipes and homemade, monogrammed placemat/napkin combo to use @ workplace. Received MAJOR compliments.

my kids loved it July 19, 2012

This is an incredibly easy and delicious recipe! I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts so it was healthy. Patted and dried the chicken very well with paper towel, then flour, before I rolled it in the wet mixture . The flavor is great and smells good when it bakes. thanks for a great recipe! I added a little extra seasoning salt, pepper, and garlic powder to the baking mix. The last 20 minutes I turned up the temperature to 410 to make sure the breading was crispy. Sometimes, I substitute the whole chicken for chicken breast tenders. They came out delicious and perfectly crispy. It is a great, easy recipe! Always a crowd pleaser! Serve it a side of salad with home made honey mustard. My kids would snack on this the whole time with just a bar b q dipping sauce. Super yummy and somewhat healthy compared to the deep fried version. My family and I really enjoyed this recipe. Thank you.

This is super yummy and was a hit with the whole family. It was easy to prepare and I did follow another reviewer's suggestion and add some extra seasonings to add a bit more flavor.
