NOTE: If allergic, you can coat the breast in plain yogurt instead before coating it in cracker crumbs and baking it in a shallow dish.

Frequently Asked Questions
What to do to make this dish taste even better
Crunched Ritz crackers get a ton of flavor with the addition of Italian seasoning, garlic powder, fine sea salt, and powdered black pepper. If you want to add some ranch taste, you may also use a pinch or two of ranch spice.
Is it okay if I use chicken thighs, breasts, etc?
Although boneless, skinless chicken breasts are ideal for this dish, boneless, skinless chicken thighs will work in a pinch. Using air-chilled chicken is preferable since it has a more consistent texture and releases less liquid when baking.
