Crispy Cheddar Chicken
Ingredients:

Chicken:
4 large chicken breasts
2 sleeves Ritz crackers
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/2 c. milk
3 c. cheddar cheese, grated
1 tsp. dried parsley

Sauce:
1 10 oz. can cream of chicken soup
2 T. sour cream
2 T. butter

Instructions:
  1. Cut each chicken breast into 3 large chunks.
  2. In a small food processor grind up the Ritz crackers.
  3. Pour the milk, cheese and cracker crumbs into 3 separate small pans.  Toss the 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/8 tsp. pepper into the cracker crumbs and stir the mixture around to combine.
  4. 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 done 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.
  5. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray and lay the chicken inside the pan.
  6. Sprinkle the dried parsley over the chicken.
  7. 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.
Let me know how your chicken turns out!

The Reese's Peanut Butter Trifle is out of this world! You would think it would be too sweet, but it's not. The Chicken and 20 cloves of garlic is to die for. I love garlic and this recipe gives you the garlic flavor without being overwhelming.
The Chicken Marsala is without a doubt my favorite. I found this recipe many years ago on HGTV and have used it ever since. It's an easy recipe and I always get raves. Painting on glass is easier than you think. Check out this post for instructions on how to make beautiful wine glasses.

Summer, means "salsa". The Orange and Tomato Salsa is so good. The sweet and tart flavors blend perfectly. My favorite thing to do is make bread and rolls. The Angel buns are a great addition to any dinner. I recommend trying them. They are so good
