Putting on the Ritz

Soooooo instead of using my 2 1/2 hour break to do something productive (like read textbooks or do my advertising writing assignment....) I wanted to post the chicken recipe I made for the roomie and myself!

Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (I actually prefer to use the Chicken Tender cut because it bakes faster!)
Ritz Crackers (I use the whole wheat kind)
Milk (Doesn't matter if it's skim, 2%, or whole)
1 Egg
Butter (If on Weight Watchers or a diet, go for the I can't believe it's not Butter)

Baking Pan
Two small bowls (must be big enough to fit your chicken breast inside of)
Ziploc bag

The Recipe:
1. Rinse the chicken in the sink before you begin the recipe
2. Melt a small chunk of butter in one of your small bowls (if using a stick, 1-2 tbsp should be enough)
3. In the other small bowl crack your egg and add skim milk. stir until a mixture.
4. Place a handful of Ritz inside of the ziploc bag. seal the bag and crush the Ritz with your hand. Does not have to be crushed until extremely fine, but most of the Ritz should be well crushed. (I like to leave some chunks for a crunch!)
5. Take the chicken breast and dip it in the bowl of melted butter first. Next, dip it in the egg/milk mixture. Finally, put the chicken in the ziploc bag and shake until thoroughly coated in Ritz crackers. Place it in the baking pan and repeat with other pieces of chicken.
6. If using large chicken breasts, bake for 35 minutes at 375 degrees. If using chicken tenders, bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

It goes perfectly with Kristin's supermegafoxyawesomehot mashed potatoes. She's a genius.

Someday when she successfully starts her blog you can learn her mashed potato ways.

^^ the END.
