The Best Breaded Chicken Ever
Hello, friends! Recently I made a batch of my favorite snack: Nana's No-Bake Ranch Flavored Oyster Crackers. These crackers are super-addictive and incredibly easy to make. One night, I was sipping my crackers out of a Mason jar (yes, you read that right, don't judge me) when I had an epiphany.
No, the epiphany wasn't that it's freaking weird to drink crackers from a Mason jar. I realized that this stuff would make an incredible breading for chicken!
I fought the urge to guzzle down the rest of my crackers and set aside a cup of them for the following night's dinner.
Ingredients: 1 pound of chicken breast 1 cup of Nana's No-Bake Ranch Flavored Oyster Crackers, crushed 1 egg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Crack and whip an egg in a small bowl.
Place 1 cup of crushed Nana's No-Bake Ranch Flavored Oyster Crackers in a separate small bowl. Doesn't it look super yummy?
Place chicken breast in the egg bath, ensuring it is coated on both sides of the breast.
Next, transfer the breast to the cracker bowl and cover generously with crackers.
Place your chicken in an oven-safe pan. I use a cast iron skillet when I prepare this meal.
Sprinkle any of the remaining cracker mixture on top of your chicken.
Cook for 30-35 minutes, or until chicken is fully cooked.
You can serve the chicken as is or dress it up any way you'd like! We like to add avocado and black beans to the top of ours.
I'm already calling it, this will be my most made dish of 2017. The chicken is ridiculously moist and the ranch crackers form a deliciously perfect crust.
