Crispy Cheesy Chicken

Recipe Courtesy Erin Pawley 
I served this chicken on a bed of Romaine lettuce and baked potato slices along with sauteed mushrooms and soya beans (edamame) seasoned with Herbs de Provence. The chicken came out very tender & juicy and the sauce was particularly delicious. It tasted just like Hollandaise Sauce!

2 lbs. chicken tenders or 4 large chicken breasts
2 sleeves Ritz crackers
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup whole milk
3 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1 tsp. dried parsley

1 (10 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
2 Tbsp. sour cream
2 Tbsp. butter

Crush crackers. If using chicken breasts and not tenders, cut each chicken breast into 3 large pieces. Pour the milk, cheese and cracker crumbs into 3 separate small pans. Toss the salt and pepper into the cracker crumbs and stir the mixture around to combine. Dip each piece of chicken into the milk and then the cheese. Press the cheese into the chicken with your fingers. Then press the cheesy coated chicken into the cracker crumbs and press it in.

Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray and lay the chicken inside the pan. Sprinkle the dried parsley over the chicken. Cover the pan with tin foil and bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove the tin foil, bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the edges of the chicken are golden brown and crispy.

In a medium sized sauce pan combine the cream of chicken soup, sour cream and butter with a whisk. Stir it over medium high heat until the sauce is nice and hot. Serve over the chicken.
