This was always a staple in our house growing up! This Ritz Cracker Chicken only has 6 ingredients and is SO easy to throw together. I said it takes 10 minutes (to be generous), but really you could throw it together in 2. 🙂

    I make this chicken a lot my kids and husband love it. I do a few things differently. With the crackers I put in ranch seasoning, graded parmesan cheese and a little melted butter. Taste even better. In my opinion. Either way is amazing.
