This is edited from a different recipe when I didn't have all the ingredients on hand. It ended up being better than the original! Very easy to prepare. I serve this with pasta and garlic bread.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blend olive oil and garlic in a medium sized bowl. Let sit while you prepare the breading mixture.
  2. Combine crushed saltines, pepper, Italian Seasoning and Rosemary in a separate medium sized bowl until blended.
  3. To the dry mixture, add both cheeses and mix well.
  4. One chicken breast at a time, dip in oil and then coat in breading mixture. Place breaded chicken breasts in a greased baking dish.
  5. Sprinkle any remaining breading mixture evenly over the top of the chicken, and then drizzle any remaining oil over the top of that.
  6. Bake at 400°F for 25 - 35 minutes, depending on thickness of chicken breasts.

I will looking for something quick to prep when I stumbled on this. My guys really liked it! I like that it used olive oil, although next time I think I will use less. Thanks for sharing!

This was very yummy! I cut it in half for my husband and I. We both loved it. So much healthier to use olive oil than an egg for breading it! What a great idea! Also, the garlic in it was the perfect amount for great flavor! I used Triscuit crackers because I didn't have Saltine's. They were rosemary & olive oil flavor so I think it made it even better! I added other Italian seasonings too (basil, oregano, thyme, etc.) I served it with whole wheat angel hair pasta with a chunky tomato sauce with mushrooms and zucchini! Thanks for a wonderful and SIMPLE recipe! I've never been able to make breaded chicken so good & so easily! I'll be making this great recipe often!

This was pretty good. It was easy to make. I used monterey jack cheese with the parmesan cheese. It was a good combination. I didn't have Italian Seasoning so I used pinches of Oregano, basil and thyme leaves. I had this with Recipe #239940 and my Recipe #240456. It was a good combination of foods. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Make for PAC Fall '07
