Ritzy Parmesan Baked Chicken - TSLC

Parmesan baked chicken is easy and good. Just add a side dish and bread for a great meal.  I love the taste of the parmesan cheese baked with the Ritz crackers on this chicken.  You could easily double this parmesan chicken recipe if serving several family or friends.  A great recipe to have on hand and one you will go back to time and again.  This is one of our favorite chicken recipes for company or just a weeknight meal.

1 to 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken (Can use breasts or any chicken pieces you like)
1 sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated (the kind in the green can or fresh)
1 cup Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt, Honey Flavored (Could use plain yogurt or milk to dip the chicken, too)
4 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
Put the Ritz crackers in a plastic ziploc bag and finely crush with a rolling pin.  Add cheese to the bag and mix well.  Dip chicken pieces in the yogurt and then in the crumb mixture.  Place chicken in a sprayed casserole dish, drizzle melted butter over the chicken and bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes until chicken is done inside.  Makes 4 servings. I think you will love the ritzy cheesy taste of this chicken. I can eat it cold right out of the fridge.   Enjoy!

  1. I will have to try this, I make a similar one, was my husbands favorite, dipped in beaten egg and melted butter not yogurt and instead of ritz crackers I used corn flake crumbs. very good.

  2. Just made this for my dad and I tonight & he’s in the kitchen right now eating and raving over left overs! Super tasty! Thanks for the simple recipe!!!

  3. In the oven and looking forward to trying this!

  4. Hey! I wanted to let you know that I used a little mayo instead of the yogurt and my husband loved it! Thanks. I’m gonna make it tonight and realized I never replied to let you know what I ended up doing. Anyway, super good 🙂

  5. This looks super Good and I would like to make it tonight for my hubby and I. I don’t have Greek yogurt on hand… can I use milk or egg and if so should I add any honey anywhere to the mix (the recipe calls foe Greek honey yogurt) Thanks so much!!!

  6. I use this recipe on fish also. Really yummy!

  7. Do you bake this covered or uncovered?

  8. Karen Velez says:

    Can’t wait to make this!

  9. I fixed ritzy parm chicken for 25 people and everyone raved! I did add some hot sauce to the yogurt. I didn’t want to add salt because of the sodium in the crackers and parm cheese. VERY easy to feed a big crowd. Baking chicken instead of standing over a hot BBQ worked for me.

  10. Judy, I made this yesterday and used chicken strips. No yogurt on hand and used buttermilk. So good and easy for a “solo lady”
    enough for today with my spinach and mashed potatoes, thank you

  11. Judy, this sounds so good
    something I could make for one…

  12. Ritzy parmesan baked chicken sounds like something my teenage boys would gobble up in a heartbeat.

  13. Buttery, flaky, toasty goodness!
