Crunchy chicken Parmesan that your family will love. Everyone I have made this for has told me it's the best chicken Parmesan ever. Serve over your favorite pasta with your favorite sauce (I use marinara). Sometimes I sprinkle mozzarella cheese over my chicken as well as the Parmesan. I also garnish with chopped fresh basil.

I used regular cheese flavored crackers and although it was fantastic I will be experimenting with other flavor crackers next time. I served it over garden rotini with marinara sauce but any pasta and sauce combo would complement this chicken. Read More

I ended up needing a little more flour and goldfish crackers but other than that this recipe was perfect. I used the regular cheese crackers and the flavor definitely came out. It would be interesting to experiment with other flavors like pizza. Regardless this was fast easy full of flavor and one I would make again. Thanks for sharing! Read More
