Top Chef - Here I come!

While spending probably too much time on Pinterest, I found this recipe. Crispy Cheddar Chicken sounded like heaven, and it was my turn to cook dinner for GB.  
The ingredients were simple so I was not too scared to attempt this dish. 

The prep time is only listed as 15 minutes. Never once in my life have I ever managed to prepare anything for consumption in the time allotted. Here goes nothing. 
The recipe calls for the ritz crackers to be ground up in a food processor. We do not have a food processor, so I took out all my aggression on those little crackers with a wooden spoon. 

The prep was simple - dip chicken breasts in milk, then cheddar cheese, then finally the ritz crackers. 
The only problem is nothing seemed to stick to the chicken. 

I had to basically cup my hand around the chicken to get the cheese and crackers to hold on. 
Turns out this was a very messy process. 

It took a little over 20 minutes until I was ready to put the chicken in the oven. If I was on Top Chef, I would lose.

While the chicken was baking, I warmed up the cream of chicken soup, sour cream and a little butter. 

To serve aside the chicken, I cooked some potatoes to assure it’d be a real home cooked meal. 

The chicken, if I do say so myself, looked quite delectable when it came out of the oven.    I didn’t take a picture of the sauce poured over the chicken because hunger took over and I HAD TO EAT. 

Overall - this is a great recipe and I will definitely be trying it again. I think next time, with a food processor, I might actually prepare the meal in 15 minutes. Top Chef (in my mind), here I come!

  1. It does look good. Although I would suggest fatty 2% milk for better stickage(it's not like you will be drinking the milk), and definitely make those crackers dust not bits. Or instead of milk just go plain egg whites, nothing but protein and the best stickage. Sorry, I have been trying a lot of recipes, too.
