This is an easy way to have the fried chicken texture, but baked.

I made this recipe tonight for the first time and it was delicious. I did change it up a bit (which I do with all recipes). I seasoned the chicken with tenderizer crushed garlic and onion powder. I only had 8 saltine crackers so I used those in combination with a pack of Ritz crackers. I also seasoned the cracker crumbs with minced garlic and sea salt. The chicken turned out great. I will definitely make this recipe again. Read More

i'm not a real fan of baked fried chicken but this was ok. I marinated the chicken with seasoning salt black pepper and a little salt for a couple of hours. Then used milk honey and olive oil as my batter to make the breading stick. I also used pretzels and cheezits for the crust. I baked it in the oven on a wire cooling rack to keep it from being soggy. It tasted good I just love real fried chicken! LOL Read More

I made this according to the recipe with the exception of using butter rather than margarine and using just a little more of the garlic powder and we thought this was very tasty! It was easy and the coating didn't fall off! The timing was right on! I used one package of Costco chicken breasts and cut the recipe in half and it was perfect. We enjoyed our dinner very much! Thanks for this recipe! Read More

This was WONDERFUL exactly as written. In my opinion "Steph D" shouldn't have bothered writing a review because she didn't make THIS recipe. That is absolutely unacceptable!! People please rate a recipe on its merits - and if you chose to change it for any reason it's fine to share those AS SUGGESTIONS but certainly NOT as a criticism of the original recipe. Shame!!

My husband raved about this chicken the entire evening! I made a few changes just to dress it up slightly. I used real butter instead of margarine. I substituted Captain Wafers for the saltines and added Lawry's Seasoning cracked pepper a 1/4 tsp Onion Powder 1/4 tsp of Garlic Powder to the crumbs. I dipped the boneless skinless chicken breasts into the butter and then into the crumbs. I baked at the recommended temp for 50 minutes then checked the internal temp. 160F!! Pulled them out and... Yummy! These were perfectly cooked and moist. I will be cooking these regularly! Read More

I took the skin OFF put garlic powder onion powder salt & pepper on the chicken AND in the crumbs (Trader Joe's Pane Guttian crackers mixed w/ seasoned bread crumbs). Dip in butter (never margarine!). I baked it on a baker's rack to prevent soggy crumbs. GREAT! Read More

I made this for my extra picky boyfriend. I tweaked the recipe a little pounding out the chicken then dredging it in cornstarch dipping it in seasoned egg then the saltines.... I baked it on 400 for 30 mins because the chicken wasn't as thick but it turned out amazing!! My boyfriend gobbled it up without taking a breath! Turned out nice crispy and brown.... I will definitely make this again!! Read More

Made this recipe for the first time today & it was awesome. The chicken was so moist & got many raves from the family. I did add more garlic powder a little dried parsley flakes and a little parmesan cheese to the dry ingredients. Will definitely make this again. Thanks Kush Read More
