MY FAVORITE RECIPES

Over the years I find I come back to favorites when meal planning.  Some of these are favorites of my family also.

Chicken is my second most favorite meat and it is the most versatile and healthy choice.  I will share my Cracker-Coated Chicken recipe which is easy and can be prepared ahead of time.

Ingredients:  4 to 6 pieces of boneless, skinless chicken breasts.  (You can also use cut chicken parts with bone and skin. About 2 cups of finely crushed saltine crackers.  3/4 to 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese.  About 1/2 cup of dried parsley.   1 to 2 sticks of melted butter.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Rinse and pat dry chicken pieces.  Mix together crackers, cheese and parsley in shallow pan. Melted butter in another  pan.  Dip chicken pieces in butter and then into cracker mixture to coat evenly.  Place on lightly sprayed cookie sheet.  Pour any remaining butter over chicken pieces.   (You do not need to salt chicken as salt is already in crackers and cheese).

Bake 45 min. until golden brown.  May be prepared ahead of time, cover and refrigerate, leave at room temperature 15 min. before baking.

Healthier version:  substitute extra virgin olive oil for butter.

Enjoy!
