So glad someone saved the recipe here since LHJ is now gone. I love this recipe because it is so easy. I usually buy regular skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut off & freeze the tenderloin (great for kebabs or stir fry later) & then pound the breasts to the desired thickness. I season the breasts before I put on the cracker/cheese mix. I just sprinkle it on and use my hands to press it into the breast. A little melted butter on the naked breast helps it to adhere.<br/>It's even good cold the next day, if there's any left.

I've made this recipe and it was amazing! Everyone loved it and the kids came running because of the smell coming from the oven. So quick and easy!
