Reviews for Marinated Baked Chicken Breasts
"Very moist, seasoned well, the butter flavored crackers make a nice coating. I used boneless breast."
"My family really liked this even though I used fat free sour cream, and reduced the salt and butter. It's definitely going in my recipe box to make again."
"Wonderful tasting chicken!! I made 1/2 of the recipe using 4 chicken breasts cutlets. Next time will increase temperature to 375 and use less than the amount stated for butter, but otherwise made as stated. Will definitely be making these again."
