Angie’s Baked Cheddar Chicken with Sauce
College students, want to impress your parents? Husbands, your wives? Anyone want to impress company?? Then THIS is for you.
Oh, yeah, I guess you can feed it to the kiddos too!
I am eating the baked cheddar chicken right now as leftovers. And I do not eat left overs. Luckily for me, unfortunately, my husband left his lunch at home today so it’s all mine.
This is a very pretty easy to prepare, but get ready for all the compliments afterwords. I would say it’s definitely a “need to make dinner for company recipe!” It even looks like you spent a lot of time on it!
After the chicken is in the pan, I just dumped the left over cheese & cracker crumbs on top of it. I love crust.

Many things make me happy; the color orange, my family, my friends, my husband, my puppies, good food, and ofcorse ICE TEA! I was looking for something today, to use with some left over ingredients that I had for Easter (the only thing I didn't have was cream of chicken soup, Hubby went and got it for me :D). I found this recipe on Pinterest. Let me tell you it is worth it. And it is something that you don't have to think about for 40 minutes, like a slow cooker just in the over.
A few things that I did a little bit different, I added the parsley to the cracker crumbs, I don't really like the taste of dried parsley. I used all of the cheese, I poured it over the chicken after I did the whole dip thing as well as the extra cracker crumbs. It was so good. I guess this is something like Cheez-it chicken, Ill be making over and over again!!! Thanks for the inspiration Pinterest!!!
