Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a baking dish.
  2. Mix cracker crumbs, seasoned salt, and garlic powder in a shallow bowl. Dip chicken breasts into melted margarine and press into cracker mixture until coated. Arrange chicken in prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until chicken breasts are no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 45 to 60 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).

I made this according to the recipe with the exception of using butter rather than margarine and using just a little more of the garlic powder, and we thought this was very tasty! It was easy, and the coating didn't fall off! The timing was right on! I used one package of Costco chicken breasts and cut the recipe in half, and it was perfect. We enjoyed our dinner very much! Thanks for this recipe!

I made this recipe tonight for the first time and it was delicious. I did change it up a bit (which I do with all recipes). I seasoned the chicken with tenderizer, crushed garlic and onion powder. I only had 8 saltine crackers so I used those in combination with a pack of Ritz crackers. I also seasoned the cracker crumbs with minced garlic and sea salt. The chicken turned out great. I will definitely make this recipe again.

Really tasty chicken! We used chicken tenderloins and my 10 year old made it perfectly! Very easy to bake, tender and very good.

I was skeptical about the chicken crisping in the ovan and not being soggy... but it was fantastic!!!! I will deff be making this more often!

Made this recipe for the first time today & it was awesome. The chicken was so moist & got many raves from the family. I did add more garlic powder, a little dried parsley flakes and a little parmesan cheese to the dry ingredients. Will definitely make this again. Thanks, Kush

I took the skin OFF, put garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper on the chicken AND in the crumbs (Trader Joe's Pane Guttian crackers mixed w/ seasoned bread crumbs). Dip in butter (never margarine!). I baked it on a baker's rack to prevent soggy crumbs. GREAT!

I had to use panko instead of saltines, so I am not sure my rating is fair. It was good but DEFINITELY needed salt.
