ok, heres the deal on this one. I was so glad i read the reviews before i cooked this. I really changed the whole recipe, but this was a great "staple" recipe. I used egg whites, instead of butter, (you know, those pesky fat and calorie things)used crackers and ranch style croutons (like someone else suggested) and cooked them 10-15 minutes at 425 on the top rack. I also tenderized the chicken breasts before i cut them up. I did not have a soggy piece of chicken, on either side, these were super crunchy. My WHOLE family said these were the absolute best, and when the WHOLE family agrees, you can bet it was good!

I thought this would come out better than it did. The breadcrumbs ended up soggy and came off the chicken anytime I flipped or moved the pieces with tongs. I also realized the mush wouldn't go away with 325 degree heat, so I eventually had to raise it to 425 just to brown them a little and take away some of the sogginess. I think rolling the chicken in butter is better if the breading is something more substantial like cracker crumbs.

definitely crank the heat up to 375. i also add parmesan cheese to my breadcrumbs. with regards to the soggy crust, i solve that by sprinkling the sheetpan with a layer of the plain breadcrumbs. it lifts the chicken up and you will never have soggy crust again. this also works with breaded pork chops etc.

Very quick, very easy. To cut some of the fat I used mustard instead of butter to coat the chicken before I rolled it in the bread crumbs. It gave it a great "honey mustard" type of taste.

I TOOK THE ADVICE ANOTHER REVIEW AND USED MUSTARD TO COAT MY CHICKEN INSTEAD OF BUTTER AND IT TURNED OUT GREAT. MY HUBBY LOVED IT AND PUT THE LEFTOVERS ON BREAD WITH A BIT MORE MUSTARD AND HAD THAT AS A SNACK.

My family enjoyed these, so they get 4 stars. I thought the temperature on the oven might be too low because they didn't become crunchy at all, the bread crumbs were still a very mealy texture...too underdone, I guess. That could have been my fault, but I would make these again on a higher temperature since my family likes them :)

Super easy, and super basic. I use this recipe as a staple in our home. I do add some seasonings to my breadcrumbs...regardless if there is already seasoning to it. If I want a good garlic flavor, I just sprinke a bit of garlic powder on when they come out of the oven. Thanks for the post.
