  • 2 chicken half-breasts boneless, skinless

Rinse and pat the chicken breasts. Coat with the egg white.

In a wide, shallow bowl or platter, mix the crushed crackers and Parmesan. Roll the chicken breasts in the mixture until they are well coated.

Place the chicken in a pan and bake for about 35 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through (no pink shows in the middle) and the cracker coating is crispy.
