Tired of serving chicken breasts the same ol' way every time? If so, then you'll love this recipe for Cheesy Baked Chicken. These chicken breasts have a cracker crumb coating made from crushed cheese crackers and sesame seeds, so you can expect lots of crunch and flavor in every bite. Plus, this one is done in just about 30 minutes, which makes it great for busy weeknights!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup finely crushed cheese crackers
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. 
  2. In a shallow bowl, combine cracker crumbs, sesame seeds, parsley, salt, and black pepper. Place butter in another shallow dish. Dip chicken in butter, then dip in cracker-crumb mixture, coating evenly on both sides. Place chicken on baking sheet.
  3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until no pink remains in center and chicken is golden.

We think this cheesy baked chicken goes great with honey mustard!

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).
