This recipe is so simple, quick and delicious! It's a true winner for the whole family and perfect for weeknight dinners!
4 large chicken breasts
2 sleeves Ritz crackers
1/4 t salt
1/8 t pepper
1/2 C milk
3 C cheddar cheese, grated
1 t dried parsley
1 10 ounce can cream of chicken soup
2 T sour cream
2 T butter
Cut each chicken breast into 3 large chunks.
In a small food processor grind up the ritz crackers.
Pour the milk, cheese and cracker crumbs into 3 separate small pans.
Toss the 1/4 t salt and 1/8 t pepper into the cracker crumbs and stir the mixture around to combine.
Dip each piece of chicken into the milk then the cheese.
Press the cheese into the chicken with your fingers. Some of it will fall off when you add it to the cracker crumbs, don't worry about it.
Press the cheesy chicken into the cracker crumbs and press it in.
By the time you are coating the last piece of chicken, the dish you are using for the crumbs will be full of cheese. Don't let it get you down. Once the cheese melts in the oven it will adhere nicely to the crumbs and the crackers.
Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray and lay the chicken inside the pan.
Sprinkle the dried parsley over the chicken.
Cover the pan with tin foil and bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes.
Remove the tin foil, bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the edges of the chicken are golden brown and crispy.
Into a medium sized sauce pan combine the cream of chicken soup, sour cream and butter with a whisk.
Stir it over medium high heat until the sauce is nice and hot.
Serve over the chicken and enjoy!
This is a quick favorite that is so easy to whip up for dinner! A sure winner for everybody!
4 Tbsp oil
1 lb Lean Ground Beef
1/4 cup Bread Crumbs (I like the seasoned ones best!)
1/4 all-purpose flour
1 tsp Worcestershire*
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder* (I usually don't measure the seasonings, I just put a healthy sprinkle in!)
1/2 tsp Onion Powder*
salt and pepper to taste*
2 Tbsp milk
small can of mushrooms (optional)
1/2 medium sized onion
2 packs of brown gravy mix (I like using the mushroom gravy)
Heat the oil in a medium skillet, but don't let it get too hot!
In medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, half the garlic powder, half onion powder, salt and pepper.( I usually don't measure the seasonings, I just put a good sprinkle in).
In small bowl, mix together flour and more of the dry seasonings.
In another small bowl, beat the egg. milk and another sprinkle of all the seasonings.
Pat the burger meat into evenly sized patties, I usually get 3 or 4, and you can always add a few more bread crumbs to stretch it a little more!
Quickly dip the patties into the egg mixture and then lightly coat them in the flour mixture.
Fry in the hot oil until golden brown and cooked in the middle.
Drain the patties on newspaper when done.
After the patties are done, I like to add some sliced onion and a can of mushrooms to the oil and sautee until the onions are done.
Remove onions and mushrooms from pan.
Drain all the oil, leaving just a few drippings in the pan.
Add the required water for the gravy mixes to pan and blend in the gravy mix until smooth.
Let simmer for a few minutes until it starts to thicken.
Add the onions and mushrooms and stir.
Then add the patties to the gravy mix and spoon gravy on top until they're well doused.
Let simmer for about 5-10 minutes and then serve!

Believe it or not, the famous Fischer and Weiser company was born and raised in my same tiny hometown- Fredericksburg, TX.

Pour half of the dressing into a large shallow bowl or dish, put the flour on a large plate and add half the pretzel mixture to a large, shallow bowl or dish (add more as needed).
Working one at a time, dredge the pork chops in the flour then into the dressing allowing excess to drip off then into the pretzel crumbs patting them on if needed.
