Crispy Cheddar Chicken recipe

Crispy Cheddar Chicken - Baked chicken coated in sour cream, cheese and ritz cracker crumbs and topped with a delicious, creamy sauce - it's our new go-to dinner recipe!

Do you gather with family for Easter? Now that we are back in Arizona, we do, and we always have a HUGE Easter dinner. We gather with the whole Luna clan and my mom and sisters get together for lunch weeks before to figure out the menu (similar to what they do for Thanksgiving). I tend to have different assignments each year, but this year I was assigned the chicken. Yes, we like to have a variety of meats served at the holiday dinner, and usually have ham, a roast, and a chicken dish.

We had recently tried a recipe for Crispy Cheddar Chicken that was loved by the whole family, so my mom requested that recipe. I was happy to make it because it was easy and really was so delicious. It may be because it’s smothered in sour cream, cheese and crushed crackers and then topped with a creamy sauce. The recipe actually calls for chicken breasts, but since I was trying to feed a lot I ended up using breast tenders. They are about the third or even a quarter the size of large chicken breast, but they worked perfectly for our Easter dinner!!

I was excited to see that the chicken was all gone in a matter of minutes and several family members asked for the recipe. We had gotten it from Just a Pinch, but we made a few adjustments that we think made the recipe event better!! Give it a try yourself and let us know what you think. 😉

Slathered in sour cream and then with cheese and the crumb mixture.
