For The Chicken:

1/2 cup milk
3 cups cheddar cheese, grated
2 teaspoons dried parsley 

1 (14 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
2 Tablespoons sour cream
2 Tablespoons butter

Olive Oil
1. Cut each chicken breast on a diagonal into 3 pieces.
2. In a small food processor grind up the ritz crackers into crumbs, it is

    okay if they are not all fine crumbs, you can have a few larger crumbs, it gives
    more texture to the chicken.
3. Place the milk, cheese and cracker crumbs into 3 separate small bowls.
    Add the salt and pepper into the ritz cracker crumbs and using a fork 
    stir the mixture to combine.
4  Dip each piece of chicken into the milk then the cheese and finally 

    the cracker crumbs, pressing the chicken to make sure the crackers stick.
5. Drizzle olive oil on the bottom of a 9x13 pan and lay the chicken 

    inside the pan.
6. Sprinkle the dried parsley over the chicken.
7. Cover the pan with tin foil and bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes.

    Remove the tin foil, bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the chicken 
    is golden brown and crispy.
8. Into a medium sized pan combine the cream of chicken soup, sour cream 

    and butter and whisk until smooth and combined. Stir it over medium high heat until 
    the sauce starts to bubble and warm. Serve the sauce over the chicken and enjoy!!
   Serve with mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes or rice.
