Quirky, Crunchy Cheez-It Chicken
Ready for what is possibly the easiest quirky dinner recipe ever? I bring you…. Cheese Nib Chicken! Do not adjust your screen. It really is that unnaturally bright orange color.
One of the recipes I make most often is OMG Sour Cream Chicken, but I have to admit, it gets a little boring sometimes. I love the sour cream flavor. I love the crunch of the bread crumbs, and I love how juice the chicken stays. But sometimes, I don’t know, I want a little excitement in my life.
I just realized how sad it is that “excitement in my life” translates to using Cheese Nibs in a recipe instead of bread crumbs. I’m really living on the wild side now.
If you love fried chicken, this recipe and the OMG Sour Cream Chicken recipe are both substitutions, since you still get that crunch, but it’s backed instead of fried.
Regardless, I’m glad I tested this one out after seeing it plastered all over Pinterest. Actually, the original recipe called for Cheez-Its, but Cheese Nibs were on sale, and I can’t resist a discount. I saw this dish on multiple blogs, but hat tip to Winner Dinner, the first one I came across when pinning.
