I love this recipe! We eat this at least once a week. My kids love it with mashed potates or dirty rice. I have never actually used exact measurements so if you need to add a little more or less, it is ok. (Update: I have omitted the previous step 9. Thanks for the advice!)

Wow! This was excellent... I used flour instead of cracker crumbs only because I didn't have any - The entire family enjoyed.... Thank you!

Wonderful recipe. The chicken was moist and tasty. Loved the cracker crumbs!! Will definitely make again. We loved it!!

I thought this was pretty good. This was the first time I had used cracker crumbs as a coating for chicken. I don't think I will do that again as I much prefer dry bread crumbs or flour.
