Easy Ritz Chicken

December 7, 2009

Ritz chicken is a simple recipe that everyone will love!  It’s easy to make but it’s still delicious AND kid-friendly.

My mother-in-law gave me this recipe years ago, and it’s one of our family-favorites. It’s easy enough for a weeknight family meal, but it’s also a great option for dinner guests.

If you cut your chicken into small pieces, you can also call them chicken nuggets!  Because sometimes kids need to hear certain key words.  😉

Easy Ritz Chicken


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups crushed ritz crackers
  • ¼ c parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp season salt
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter


  1. Combine crushed crackers, parmesan, garlic salt, and season salt in shallow dish.
  2. Coat chicken with yogurt.
  3. Dip each piece in crumb mixture and arrange in 9×13 baking dish.
  4. Drizzle melted butter over top.
  5. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.


  • You can substitute sour cream, kefir (which is very similar to buttermilk), or even vanilla yogurt for the plain yogurt.
  • Tenders also work great (and bake faster!), but you may need more crumbs.  Try making 1½ times the amount of cracker crumb coating.
