I was looking for a recipe that I had made many times before and this was the closest I could find. I subbed seasoned bread crumbs for cracker crumbs and did not cook it nearly as long only about 40 minutes. I also did not cover it with foil. The topping is so good and the chicken came out juicy and full of flavor.

Tasted great. Simple prep. I've made it twice now and found breadcrumbs to be easier on the second go-around.

Great flavor, crisp coating. I baked mine for about 35-40 minutes, uncovered. This recipe states a total baking time of 1 hr and 15 min for boneless, skinless breasts which seems way too long. Mine were tender on the inside and crispy on the outside.
