Cooking Challenge: Easy Baked Chicken

by - Friday, September 10, 2010

As you can probably tell from most of the recipes I feature on the blog, I like things that are simple and easy to prepare and don't require you to buy a ton of expensive ingredients that you'll only use once.

By those parameters, this week's dinner, Ritz Breaded Chicken, couldn't have been more perfect.

I started with a simple chicken recipe that had four ingredients:
Chicken breast
Ritz crackers

To start, place a sleeve of Ritz crackers in a ziplock bag and smash them to bits.


Once you've got them crushed, add as much peppers as you'd like to the mix for flavor.


Then set up your assembly line.


Start with your chicken, then dunk it in a bowl of plain Greek yogurt and pull that through the bread crumbs before placing the chicken in the baking dish.



Your hands will definitely get messy, but that's half the fun.

Repeat the assembly line process for all the pieces of chicken and then pop them in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.


When the time is up, flip the chicken pieces over and put them back in the oven for another 30 minutes.

While the chicken was baking, I prepared some couscous and veggies as side dishes.

The result was a delicious and really filling meal, with plenty of leftovers.


This recipe couldn't have been any easier to prepare. It took maybe 10 minutes to get everything ready and once it was in the oven, I had time to focus on other things.
