Today’s share is a fantastic tried and true recipe – Famous Butter Chicken (aka, Ritz Cracker Chicken)! The name suits the recipe. This is the BEST baked chicken recipe! The chicken was so tender, moist and juicy. One of the easiest, tastiest chicken breast recipes I have made to date. I am excited to be adding this to my recipe box on Sweet Little Bluebird, you’ll want to add it to your recipe box too.
Note: Not to be confused with the popular Indian dish, Butter Chicken – one of my favorites.

I love when a recipe calls for just a few ingredients but still delivers on taste. To make this chicken all you need are four boneless, skinless chicken breasts, 2 eggs, Ritz crackers, garlic salt and pepper. You can easily adapt the flavor by using your favorite seasonings.
Simply dip the chicken in eggs, then dredge in the cracker crumbs and place in a 9×13 baking dish that has been lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Last, top chicken evenly with pieces of butter.
NOTE: For this dinner, I needed to bake one chicken breast separate for my daughter with an egg allergy. Instead of dipping the breast in eggs, I dipped it in plain yogurt and then the cracker crumbs, baking it in a small baking dish. She absolutely loved it! She ate the whole chicken breast, which was shocking because she usually eats like a bird.
Bake on middle rack of oven (pre-heated at 375 degrees F) for 40 to 45 minutes or until chicken breasts reach a safe minimum 165 degree F internal temperature.
Famous Butter Chicken
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup crushed Ritz crackers or similar butter crackers
- 1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
*The recipe calls for placing the butter around the chicken, but I opted to place the butter on top of the chicken – it turned out wonderful! Add your favorite poultry seasonings for extra flavor (garlic/onion powder and more).
