Five-Ingredient Baked Chicken
photo 1
1 1/2 cups crackers (I use Ritz crackers.)
3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 ( 1 1/2 lbs. total weight) boneless skinless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1)  Heat oven to 425 degrees F.  Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside.
2)  Combine crushed crackers, Parmesan, and pepper in a shallow dish; set aside.
3)  Slice each chicken breast in half horizontally, so you have 8 pieces total.  Pound each piece between two sheets of plastic wrap until very thin.
4)  Coat chicken in butter, then dredge in cracker crumbs.  Firmly press crumbs onto each piece.  Lay chicken in a single layer on baking sheet.  Bake about 12 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
