- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and grease the baking dish. You can even grease it with some butter if you like.
- Start by pounding the breast chicken so they are all of the same thickness.
- Mix all the ingredients except butter and Ritz cracker in a bowl. In another bowl add the crushed Ritz cracker. Start with a coating of one chicken at a time in the first mixture and then coat with the crackers.

Notes for the recipe:
- You can use chicken thighs if you want. I am using the breast chicken breast for this recipe but have tried it with other meat as well.
- The main reason why I didn’t add any salt is that the Ritz crackers are already very salty. If you want, you can add salt, pepper, and any spices that you like. But I would recommend that you try this recipe once my way and you will love it.
- If you don’t have or can’t find Ritz crackers, then you can use breadcrumbs. If this is the case, you should use salt and pepper for the best flavors.
