Crispy Cheesy Chicken

Chicken AND cheese...two of my families very favorite foods, combine them and its a hit for sure. This Crispy Cheesy Chicken was one of those easy "one pan" recipes that can be prepared ahead and thrown in the oven later!

Crispy Cheesy Chicken
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breast
2 sleeves Ritz Crackers, smashed into crumbs (use a food processor if possible)
2/3 c. flour
1 t. salt
1 t. onion powder
1 t. garlic powder
1 t. season salt
1 t. pepper
1 c. buttermilk
3 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Cut chicken breast into large chunks. Place cracker crumbs, flour and seasonings in flat dish (I used a 8x8 cake pan) stir to combine. Pour milk into another flat dish. Spray a 9x13" baking pan with pan coating. Dip each piece of chicken into the buttermilk, then the cracker crumb mixture, then place in the prepared baking pan. Continue until all chicken is in the pan. Top with cheese. Cover pan with tinfoil and bake at 375 for 45-50 minutes (watch it carefully, you don't want to OVER cook it). Serve with creamy sauce (recipe below).

Sauce:
1 can cream chicken soup
2 T sour cream
1/2 c. HEAVY cream
2 T butter
1/2 c. grated cheddar cheese

Place soup, sour cream, butter, grated cheese and cream in a small sauce pan. Cook on medium heat and stir constantly until the sauce is hot and semi thick. Serve over chicken.
