This is my husband's favorite meal for me to cook. The chicken is so moist and flavorful. The more seasonings you use the better it tastes. Mayo may cause some areas to be a little mushy but it still tastes amazing!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Spray a baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Mix cheese-flavored crackers, French-fried onions, Italian bread crumbs, sesame seeds, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. Wash and pat chicken breasts dry. Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on one side of each piece and place mayonnaise-side down in the cracker mixture. Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on the other side of the chicken and cover with the cracker mixture, patting firmly into the chicken. Place chicken breasts on the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle remaining cracker mixture on top; lightly spray the chicken with cooking spray.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken breasts are no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 35 to 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I tried this because I wanted something different & new for my boneless chicken breasts. And my husband is a "comfort food" style eater. So I thought he'd like it. It was delicious!! Because the chicken breasts are coated really good, they are so moist and tender! I always cut the chicken breasts in half lengthwise. Makes them easier to eat, shorter to cook & always moist. I followed the directions exactly as written. Only difference, I cooked for about 20 minutes at 375. And that was plenty of time. Because the chicken was sliced thinner. My husband loved it! So did our son! Thanks for the recipe!

I made this chicken for dinner tonight, and my husband and I really enjoyed it. He named it "Cheez-It Chicken" :-) It was fast and easy, which made for a great weeknight meal. My only problem was that the topping got slightly burnt in places in the 450 degree oven uncovered. I suppose next time I should lower my temp a little bit. It still tasted great, and I will make it again. Thank you for the recipe.

The cooking temperature is far too high. After the topping started to burn at 450 degrees after about 10 mins, I dropped the oven down to 350 for the remaining time. 375 for 30-35 mins is probably a better setting. Also, I would change the topping by eliminating the bread crumbs at really crushing the Cheez-its. You can always add a little dried herb to get the flavor from the italian bread crumbs.
