Crispy Cheesy Chicken

I come from a cheese loving family. It is not merely a topping, we consider it the biggest part of the meal. We need at least as much cheese as the rest of the ingredients, if not more. So of course this recipe caught my eye. Anything rolled in cheese is a winner in my eyes. This chicken absolutely did not disappoint. Its cheesy crusted goodness will be making its way back to my dinner table many times. I could not get enough-- and I'm sure you'll feel the same! 

Crispy Cheesy Chicken 

4 large chicken breasts
2 sleeves Ritz crackers
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup milk
3 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 tsp. parsley

1 can (10 oz) cream of chicken soup
2 Tbsp. sour cream
2 Tbsp. butter

Cut chicken into thick strips. Crush crackers into fine crumbs-- add salt and pepper. Dip each piece of chicken into milk, then cheese, then crackers. Cheese and crackers may try to crumble off. Use your hands and pack them onto the chicken. No worries if it falls off in the pan. It will melt and stick together. Place in a greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle with parsley. Cover pan with tinfoil. Bake at 400 for 35 minutes. Remove tinfoil and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until edges of chicken are browned. While chicken is cooking, combine cream of chicken soup, sour cream and butter into a saucepan. Cook until hot, serve over warm chicken.
