Baked Saltine Cracker Chicken

I love my husband, but the man can be pretty picky when it comes to chicken!  We eat quite a bit of chicken at our house and he gave this recipe two big thumbs up!

I used saltine crackers in the coating for this chicken, but you could easily substitute your favorite cracker or even bread crumbs!

It was perfectly crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside!

Serve this up with some fresh vegetables like our Honey Sriracha Brussels Sprouts or our Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Squash, and you’ve got the perfect dinner!
