  • 1 cup of crushed round buttery cracker crumbs
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp black pepper

  3. Place the beaten eggs in another shallow bowl.
  4. Dip the chicken breasts into the beaten egg and then roll them in the cracker crumbs to thoroughly coat them. Place into the casserole dish.
  5. Drop the bits of butter all around the pieces of chicken.
