Lighter Crispy Cheddar Chicken!

Hope you all had a fab weekend!  I sure did:)  My friends and I celebrated this weekend because one of my friends, Tiff, has been looking for a job in her field for going on 8 months and she just got a call on Friday saying she got it!  We had to celebrate her job.  I will update you tomorrow what we did for that and the other fun things I did this weekend, but for now I wanted to share with you this yummy Lighter Crispy Cheddar Chicken I treated the hubby with:)

You can find the original recipe here on Jamie Cooks it Up!!  I tweaked the recipe a little to make it lighter and I guess just that much healthier.



I substituted : Ritz Crackers for reduced fat Ritz Crackers, 1% Milk, reduced fat cheddar cheese, cream of chicken soup for 98% reduce sodium and fat free , light sour cream. At least I subbed for all of the ingredients that I could!  Even though I substituted those ingredients for the regular ones, it was delish and had lots of flavor!!!

I served the baked chicken with a baked potato:)
Delicious:)

I used 4 chicken breast for this recipe and I had a lot of the toppings let over!  I think you could probably cut back on the cheese and the Ritz Crackers.  Maybe instead of 2 sleeves of Ritz Crackers, maybe only one.
Before adding the cream of chicken mix!
If your looking for a quick, easy, semi-healthy, and mouth watering chicken recipe then this is the one for you:)

Have a great night!  As always, thanks for stopping by:):):)

Until next time!!!!
