Baked Parmesan Garlic Chicken


  Chicken is often my main ingredient when it comes to my dinner time meals.  Sometimes I will incorporate it in a casserole, other times I will marinate it and then grill it.  Baking chicken is yet another way I will prepare it.  None the less I am always looking for new, quick and delicious ways to prepare my chicken. 

 Recently on Mommy's Kitchen (LOVE Tina's blog!!) I entered a giveaway for a cookbook called, 101 Hearty RECIPES from Gooseberry Patch.  Because I couldn't wait for the winner to be announced a couple weeks later (and because I was desperate for some new dinner recipes) I ordered the book on amazon.com right away.  30 hours later the cookbook was delivered to my door.  I was a HAPPY girl!  Right away I started looking through the cookbook, tagging recipes that I wanted to make ASAP.  One of the first recipes that I came upon was Parmesan Garlic Chicken.  I was sold immediately when I saw that the recipe called for sour cream to be brushed all over the chicken breasts before it was coated in a lovely mixture of seasonings, grated parm cheese and crushed Ritz crackers. YUM! And yes, it sure was YUM! Can't wait for you to enjoy this chicken recipe too!  

Garlic Parmesan Chicken
(recipe from 101 Hearty RECIPES)

Ingredients:

1 sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup sour cream (light sour cream could be easily used in place of regular sour cream)
1/3 cup butter, melted

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Lightly grease 9x13 baking pan.

2. In a shallow bowl (a pie plate would work great) combine crushed crackers, parm cheese, salt and garlic powder. 

3. Rinse chicken breasts with water and the pat dry.  Coat both sides of chicken with sour cream using a pastry brush.

4. Dredge chicken through seasoned cracker crumb mixture.  Place chicken in prepared pan and then drizzle with melted butter.

5. Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes or until juices run clear and chicken is golden brown.

Enjoy!


Happy Parmesan Garlic Chicken Baking!
