  1. I've been making this for years... got it out of my SIL's ward cookbook. I rarely use the butter and instead I soak the chicken pieces in buttermilk or plain yogurt for an hour or two before preparing the recipe - then I just pull out the pieces and dredge it in the cereal/ranch/cheese mixture.... it's a great recipe. Oh and one other tip - I usually cook it on a cookie sheet - I can get more chicken on it - and I line the sheet with aluminum foil so clean-up is a breeze!
    • You can use the kind on the plastic tube container or it also can be found in the cheese section of the store. It is bagged and already shredded. That's the kind of parmesan cheese we use, already shredded. You will love this recipe! So easy and the chicken is moist!

        Sorry... but I am a bit confused on what type of Parmesan cheese. Did you use the one in the "plastic container" OR the bag of "shredded" cheese? You mentioned in ingredients "grated" but in the comment above, you said "shredded" -- could you clarify/correct what you used on the recipe. Thx... love your page/site! :)
        • Hi Sandy, So sorry to confuse you. I use the bagged shredded cheese. Some packages say grated and some say shredded. I have used the Parmesan cheese in the plastic container that is also kind of shredded. But I like bagged the best. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you have anymore questions. :)
