Famous Butter Chicken


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup crushed Ritz crackers or similar butter crackers
  • 1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces 
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Place crushed crackers in a medium size shallow bowl, add garlic salt and pepper - mix. Place eggs (beaten) in another separate medium size shallow bowl. Dip one chicken breast at a time in the eggs coating well, then dredge in the cracker crumbs, coating well on all sides. Place chicken breasts side-by-side in baking dish. *Top chicken evenly with pieces of butter. 

Bake on middle rack of oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until chicken is ready and internal temperature has reached a safe minimum 165 degree F internal temperature. 

Serve with your favorite veggies, rice, potatoes, salad and more. Enjoy!


*The recipe calls for placing the butter around the chicken, but I opted to place the butter on top of the chicken - it turned out wonderful! Add your favorite poultry seasonings for extra flavor (garlic/onion powder and more).
