Delicious, moist, good-the-next-day chicken! Use as many pieces of chicken as needed. I use breasts, thighs, and legs. I have never found anyone who did not like this dish!

This was so easy and quick to prepare. I put my chicken in a ziploc bag and marinated with lime juice salt pepper season all and Adobo Goya for about 5 min. then I followed the recipe as instructed. The results were a crispy coating outside and tender and moist chicken inside. Those who got bland or boring results must have failed to season.

I tried this recipe last night and I'm not sure why but it didn't work. The saltine cracker coating that was on the bottom fell off and stuck to the tin foil and there was no taste to the chicken.

I took the advise of the other reviews and used Ritz rather than saltines and seasoned with salt and pepper and a dash of garlic salt and it turned out wonderful! It was so easy and my family loved it!

This recipe was very good. I used bread crumbs instead of the crackers. I also seasoned my bread crumbs with garlic powder red pepper creole seasoning and some other things that I have hanging around the house. I used chicken wings as well. It was very moist and delicious!

I used Ritz just because it's what I had. And I used boneless breast (same reason). This was really really easy. Moist crispy and tasty. Needed salt & pepper but easily remedied. Not a lot of flavor but sometimes that's exactly what we're looking for.

This was a very good recipe. I did add seasonings to my crushed crackers and it remined me of a shake and bake type chicken. Definatly a keeper. Thanks for the recipe.
