Cheddar Baked Chicken

Ok, there are hundreds of variations out there for this recipe. I'm going to post my favorite version and then give you a few ideas of how to change it up a bit. Regardless, this is definitely Aaron's favorite chicken. You can't go wrong!!

1/2 cup sour cream
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup crushed up goldfish crackers (Ritz crackers work, too!)
1-2 tsp. garlic powder
1-2 tsp. Italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbls. butter, melted


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking dish with foil (easy clean up!!)

2. Mis together cheese, crushed up stuff, and spices

3. Dredge chicken in sour cream and then in mix and put in pan

4. Pour melted butter on chicken

5. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until coating is golden brown and chicken is done :) I'm sure you'll figure it out


- Use parmesan cheese and crushed up bread crumbs for more of a parm. chicken. You can serve that with spaghetti or alfredo sauce and pasta/

- If you don't have sour cream, you can use 1 egg beaten and 2 tbls. of milk to coat chicken before you put on the mix

- For a little "gourmet" twist, slice a pocket in the chicken and stuff with swiss cheese and ham before covering with all the fun stuff for a white trash version of Cordon Bleu

-Do whatever the heck you want! It's hard to screw this recipe up
