Parmesan crusted chicken is an easy, low carb, four ingredient recipe! A kid friendly meal that's tender on the inside with a tasty crunch on the outside!


Units Scale
  • 6 Chicken boneless, skinless breasts OR 18 chicken tenders, thawed
  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 to 1 1/2 rolls of Garlic Butter Ritz Crackers
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese


  1. Cut the 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts into 3 strips each OR use 18 chicken tenders instead.
  2. Place the breast strips or tenders into a gallon size ziploc bag with a cup of sour cream.  Squish the bag around coating the chicken strips in sour cream and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  3. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with foil, set a wire cooling rack over the tin foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Crush the garlic butter ritz crackers into fine crumbs in a gallon ziploc bag, with a rolling pin.  Add the shredded parmesan to the crumbs and shake to mix.
  5. Remove the chicken strips a few at a time from the sour cream.  Let the excess sour cream drip off and place the chicken strips in the bag of parm and crumbs.  Shake to coat.
  6. Place the crumb coated chicken strips on the wire cooling rack leaving just a little space in between each strip.
  7. Discard the bag of used sour cream.
  8. Bake the chicken strips at 350 for about 25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the crust is golden.
