Mom's Oven Baked Ritzy Chicken

This is my family's go-to chicken recipe that my Mom has been making for many years.It has a very buttery flavor, and the crust is so good, when no one is looking, I even try to eat the crumbs from the baking pan....I know.

I made it awhile back for my cousin and her family along with mashed potatoes, and green beans (all heavily doused with real butter)and dessert and when we were all finished eating, her husband proclaimed, "This was delicious." I answered, "well, I guess it was. We have each eaten a stick of butter!"

Okay, I don't eat like this every evening- just as often as I can!

If you want to give it a try, you will need:

Chicken- boneless, skinless (see, saved yourself a little fat right there!)
*Cut into strips
1 stick of butter (You may need a little more)

1 sleeve RITZ crackers (this brand does make the difference- don't substitute)-or more- depending on how heavy you like your coating.

Dip chicken in butter, then roll in crumbs. Place on GREASED baking sheet . Pour extra butter over top. Bake a 350 for about 30 minutes.

Now, you can send a thank you note to my Momma!


  1. This looks like a wonderful go to meal! I sneak and eat the breading crumbs too sometimes. Very nice picture of you and your mom.

  2. Oh my this chicken looks amazing! It reminds me of chicken my grandma used to make. Love the picture of you and your mom :)

  3. Aw, what a sweet picture :D Sounds delicious!

  4. I like that- baked not fried. But it looks fried! And I bet it tastes fried.
    Nice photo of you and your mom. You look like her.

  5. That looks fantastic!! I imagine those greasy, crispy crumbs from the pan must be divine! Thanks Sherri's Mom!

  6. Ahh. . . I love the picture of you and your Mother! Very cute. I don't know what to say about the chicken other than YUMMY. That sums it up YUMMY!! Easy and beyond delicious. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Those chicken strips look quite yummy! I am thinking served with a dipping sauce and I would not need anything else to make me happy :-)

    Great photo of you and your mom. I raise my glass to your mom "Cheers"

  8. YUM YUM YUM Easy and delicious! Happen to have Ritz crackers in the pantry and chicken in the freezer. YAY. Guess what we'll be having soon?!

    Sweet and lovely picture of you and your Mom!

  9. What a beautiful photo of you two Sherri! You both look so pretty.

    This chicken recipe sounds so delicious! I could eat an entire box of Ritz so I know I would love it. I'll try it soon and let you know how it goes. Thanks for sharing the recipe and your sweet visit today.

    Many Blessings, ~Melissa :)
