Ritzy Parmesan Chicken

This recipe is definitely one we use around our house. The kids enjoy it and it pairs nicely with mashed potatoes or with pasta and a marinara sauce for more of an Italian flair. I opted for the mashed potatoes for our Sunday dinner and made a chicken/milk gravy to go with it. It was a great combination. This is definitely a comfort food type meal.

Ritzy Parmesan Chicken 
(print this)

1 to 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts ....I cut breasts in half like a cutlet
1 sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed
1/4 cup parmesan cheese (the kind in the green can) can use freshly grated Parmesan if preferred
1 cup Buttermilk 
4 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
2 tablespoons parsley
Put the Ritz crackers in a plastic ziploc bag and finely crush with a rolling pin. Add cheese and parsley to the bag and mix well. Dip chicken pieces in the buttermilk and then in the crumb mixture. Place chicken in a sprayed casserole dish, drizzle melted butter over the chicken.
Bake  in preheated 375 degree oven for 35 to 45 minutes until chicken is done inside.
Makes 4 servings
