How to Make Ritz Chicken without a slow cooker?
This chicken recipe is totally doable even without a slow cooker, because all you need is an oven and a 9 x 13 inch pan. However, the cooking time will be different. If you cook this in the pan, it won’t cook all day like it would in the slow cooker, so prepare accordingly!
To make it in a glass baking dish, you prepare it just as you would with your slow cooker. First, spray your pan with non-stick cooking spray. Second, lay your chicken down first, followed by the sauce, and topped with the buttery crackers. And lastly, that’s it! All you have to do now, is bake it!
Once it is ready to bake, place it into a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees. Once the oven has reached the pre-heating temperature, bake for 35 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.
We also recommend using a 9 x 13 inch pan to make this recipe when you are in a time crunch and need to make something quick. I put all of these ingredients in my slow cooker in just a few minutes and within a few hours, I have dinner ready to go.
