Good variation for chicken breasts. The breasts were large so I cut in half to better assure they were thoroughly cooked. Used an Italian four cheese cracker so I added some Italian seasoning. Breaded the breasts and let them rest about 20 minutes before baking. At the end of baking I broiled briefly to lightly brown the top. With all the varieties of cheese crackers, you can personalize this recipe for your tastes.

Just two of us so only cooked two chicken breasts. Other than that I made it as written. Same amount of cracker crumbs. These days the chickens are very large. We both liked it, will make again.

I didn't have any cheese crackers so substituted the with sour cream and cheese potato chips, no left overs. )

What is the utensil that Mr. Food uses to pick up the chicken breast to coat it in the crumbs. I think I need one!

Aha - it is a Pigtail Food Flipper Turner https// == Turner-Hooks/dp/B01IRDE62E

Thank you! For a minute, I thought it was a very weak-looking ice pick!! LOL

Can you spray with olive oil? And not use butter?

The melted butter is for coating the chicken. It says in the recipe to coat with cooking spray.

I think that would probably work just fine ssnyder (to use spray olive oil rather than butter to coat the chicken).
