Ritz Cracker Chicken, also known as Famous Butter Chicken, is today’s featured recipe. This is THE BEST baked chicken recipe, so the name fits the dish!



1/2 c. butter, cut into pieces

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 c. crushed Ritz crackers or similar butter crackers

2 eggs, beaten

pepper to taste

1/2 tsp garlic salt


Get the oven ready by heating it to 375 degrees. Spray a 9-by-13-inch baking dish lightly with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine the crumbled crackers, garlic salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. To a second medium-sized shallow dish, add the beaten eggs. Coat each chicken breast thoroughly in egg, then dredge in cracker crumbs, being sure to cover both sides. In a baking dish, lay the chicken breasts flat. Butter chunks should be sprinkled evenly over the chicken.

Place chicken on the center oven rack and bake for 40–45 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer registers an internal temperature of 165°F.

Pair with rice, potatoes, salad, and more to make a complete meal.
