This can also be made without the yogurt, using buttermilk instead. If you don’t happen to have buttermilk on hand, just combine 1 tablespoon of white vinegar with 1 cup of milk (whole of low fat) and let stand for a minute. Soak the chicken in buttermilk for a bit before coating in cracker crumbs.


This dinner looks delicious. Yes, I’m a very picky eater. I don’t eat yogurt either but I might have to try this. Thanks for the post. 🙂


Pizzaz likes that this recipe utilizes Ritz Crackers. Pizzaz has always felt that the Ritz Cracker should be served in restaurants while waiting for your meal instead of bread.


Kymba thinks Pizzaz’s post is cute.


The correct spelling (in my KrazyWorld) is “Pizzazezz”,,,lol 🙂
