Butter Baked Chicken-Take 2:Holiday Recipe Exchange:Week 10 (Butter)

Butter Baked Chicken
Note: None of what I am about to write about pertains to this recipe. It's good-go try it. Now listen to me ramble:
As this post is another submission for The Holiday Recipe Exchange (view Week 1 Parts 1 and 2, Week 3, Week Six, Week Seven, Week Nine , and Part 1 Week 10) let's talk about the upcoming holiday, shall we? Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. This is the first Thanksgiving I have ever hosted, or even got close to hosting. Growing up, we always spent Thanksgiving day at my paternal grandparents' house (which oftentimes meant we had spaghetti for Thanksgiving dinner--NO COMPLAINTS!) and we celebrated with my mom's side on the following Sunday. My mom has never hosted it. So I've never seen the full of thing up close. All I know is that she made Pumpkin Pie (and I am doing the same-even using the same recipe!'s the one from the back of the can...shut up I love it.). Last year I wasn't able to go home, but I worked that day (as Michael was still in Ohio) real effort there. This year I'm hosting a "small" dinner at our apartment with me, Michael, and my friends Brandon and (maybe) Trish. I say "small" because, although it is very few guests....I'm making a lot of food. What are we having? Well....

Main Course: 
Turkey, duh. But, specifically, as I am a little nervous to make a whole one (and since there are only a few of us) my mom gave us two Butterball Turkey breasts. I'm still kind of nervous...

Side Dishes: 
Rolls (brought by Brandon)
Cranberry sauce (also brought by Brandon. I don't like it. Him and Michael do, so, whatever)
Gravy (there are packets that came with the turkey)
Corn (frozen corn of the cob...I just need to cook it a little. Then I'll cut it off the cob, just because it's easier)

Pumpkin Pie (previously mentioned)
Mini apple pies (for Michael-he doesn't like pumpkin pie-, and maybe Brandon too.)

See? Lots of food. I'm excited about leftovers though :). Not to mention I'll have two hungry boys who eat like food's going out of business and never ever never gain a speck of weight. Anyway, I'm a little anxious about the whole thing, even though it seems like a pretty low pressure situation. But, I have to work today (and I worked yesterday....that sounds really pathetic. Most people work most days, huh?) and I haven't gotten the cleaning done that I would have liked to....ah well it will all come together. What are your Thanksgiving plans? Are you as nervous as I am? If so I wish you luck and hope that you wish me some too!

...and oh yeah. Here's the recipe you came here for:

Butter Baked Chicken

Adapted very slightly from Cassie Craves

Butter Baked Chicken
  • 10 pieces of chicken (bone-in, boneless. Doesn't matter-use whatever you prefer. I used bone-in drumsticks for Michael and boneless chicken breasts for me).
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 sleeves crushed buttery crackers (such as Ritz, or I used Town House)
  • Seasonings of your choice (garlic, onion, S&P, paprika, etc.)
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Mix eggs and milk in one bowl. Put flour in another bowl. Mix crackers and seasonings in a third bowl.
  • Dip chicken in flour, then egg/milk mixture, then crackers.
  • Melt butter in a large pan on stove and brown chicken (in batches) on both sides in the butter.
  • Transfer to a 9 x 13 baking dish.
  • Cover and bake 30 minutes.
  • Uncover and bake 30 more minutes.
  • Allow to cool slightly and serve.

Don't you love getting to see what Michael and I, respectively eat? I thought so! So here's more. He had drumsticks (and some corn, ya know, let's attempt to inject some veggies).
Butter Baked Chicken
And I had that scrumptious looking chicken breast. Don't get dirty-we're talking about food here. Forrealsies, though, I'm hungry now. I'm gonna go eat. Buh bye!
