Famous Butter Chicken

Here’s a funny fact about me, on the days I don’t use my crockpot, I not only enjoy keeping my hands super active by making a main and side dish once a week (Usually either on Mondays or Thursdays) but too will do other little things, while I am cooking. Here are some of the extra stuff I do to keep my other senses busy; drinking coffee, occasionally eat a relatively healthy snack, cleaning the kitchen as I cook, listening to music or watching television. What extra things do you like to do while you are cooking?

The other night while I was drinking my coffee, watching television and eating some Ritz crackers I cooked this delicious Famous Butter Chicken. The side dish was Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower with Parmesan & Garlic. Moreover, to make the chicken cook a little faster as mine were huge, I cut mine into strips, and I probably should have used garlic powder instead of garlic salt as AllRecipes.com have garlic salt listed as one of the ingredients. Considering I am trying to make healthier eating choices. Although, it’s pretty complicated. Oh well, I will do a better job next time!

The preparation of this dish is so quick and easy. Here’s the basic lowdown: chicken is submerged in beaten eggs and cracker crumbs, then baked with butter. The chicken is so tender and juicy. Excellent flavor! There were absolutely no leftovers.

Famous Butter Chicken

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 eggs, beaten
1 C crushed Ritz crackers or similar butter crackers
1/2 C butter unsalted, cut into slices
1/2 tsp garlic powder
a dash of pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 9×13 baking pan with foil or parchment paper and lightly grease it with non-stick cooking spray.

1. Place crushed crackers and garlic powder in a medium-size shallow bowl. Place eggs (beaten) in another separate medium-size shallow bowl. Dip one chicken strip at a time in the eggs, and coat it well, then dip it into the cracker crumbs, coating well on all sides. Place chicken pieces side-by-side in baking dish.

2. Top chicken evenly with the pieces of butter. Bake in the oven for forty to forty-five minutes or until chicken is ready and internal temperature has reached a safe minimum of 165 degrees F internal temperature.
