Print Recipe


  • 2 cups White Cheddar Cheez-its
  • 4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups bbq sauce divided


  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Place cheez-its in a large ziplock back and seal. Crush using your hands until finely crushed. Pour into a shallow bowl and set aside.
  • Spray a casserole dish with nonstick spray. Pour one cup BBQ sauce into the bottom of the casserole dish** (see note below)
  • Pour the remaining 1 cup bbq sauce into a separate shallow dish.
  • Start by dipping each chicken breast into the bbq sauce, patting down both sides to make sure its completely covered. Dip the bbq chicken into the bowl with cheez-its and completely cover both sides. Use your fingers to pat down the crackers into each piece of chicken. Place each covered chicken breast into the casserole dish.
  • Bake, covered with foil, for 30 minutes, and then remove cover and continue cooking for another 15 minutes. Be sure to check the chicken for doneness before removing from the oven. When white throughout, it's done!
  • Serve on its own or with rice. Enjoy!
  • **NOTE: the BBQ sauce at the bottom of the baking dish is optional. It does make the bottom of the chicken a bit soggy. We liked the extra sauce (especially Pat), but it would be good either way. If you leave the extra sauce out, just serve with a bit of bbq sauce for dipping.
