Crispy butter chicken is an easy oven baked fried chicken with just a few ingredients in 30 minutes that your kids will LOVE!

There’s more than one way to fry a chicken. I’ve done Crispy Fried Chicken, Pioneer Take-Out Fried Chicken and Oven Fried Chicken, and crispy butter chicken is next in line.

This is an easy recipe to make on weeknights or when you don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking. Crunchy, crispy and with a rich taste you’d swear comes from a fancy restaurant, butter chicken is sure to be one of your new favorite recipes.

The thing I love about this recipe is the quick and easy dinner it makes. We keep the cracker crumbs ready ahead of time. If you want to crush a box of Ritz crackers ahead of time and keep them in your pantry, this recipe will take you less time to prepare than it takes for your oven to heat up!

I also use 6 ounce chicken breasts for this recipe, so if your chicken is much larger you may need to increase your cooking time. Some grocery stores sell chicken breasts that can weigh over 10 ounces each, so just be aware that you need to cook to doneness versus only following the time listed.

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 1 cup Ritz cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 chicken breasts , boneless skinless (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup butter , cut into pieces

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place eggs and cracker crumbs in two separate shallow bowls.
Mix cracker crumbs with garlic salt and pepper.
Dip chicken in the eggs, then dredge in the crumb mixture to coat.
Arrange coated chicken in a 9×13 inch baking dish.
Place pieces of butter on top of the chicken.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
