Baked Cheez-It Chicken is made using a lightly coated mixture of cheez-it crackers and panko on chicken breast strips that are marinated in buttermilk.
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups crushed Cheez-It's
  • 3/4 cup panko
  • salt and pepper
  • cooking spray
  1. Cut the chicken into strips. Add to a plastic bag with the buttermilk and salt. Marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 3 hours.
  2. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit a cookie sheet. Spray with a little cooking spray. Set aside. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. Crush the Cheez-It's on a piece of waxed paper. Add the panko to it. Stir to mix together with the salt and pepper.
  4. Take the strips of chicken from the bag and coat with the Cheez-It's mixture. Place on the prepared baking sheet. When all of the strips are coating spray with some of the cooking spray lightly. (Alternatively you can drizzle a few tablespoons of melted butter over them.) Place in oven.
  5. In 10 minutes turn over the strips, spray lightly again with cooking spray. Cook another 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked throughout.
