How many times do I hear myself say, "where is that big orange binder?" or "has anyone seen that big orange binder?" The big orange binder has been accumulating recipes, kinspiration & original recipe cards tucked into plastic sleeves for my entire-almost-forty year existence. "The Big Orange Binder" is an organization attempt. It's a recipe with a story neatly packaged in a place where I'll always be able to find the ever-elusive . . . Big Orange Binder.

Butter Cracker Chicken

Ritz or Townhouse for the best chicken ever . . . .

* Coat chicken in beaten eggs (I use 3 eggs for our family of 6 but you'll have to change things up for how much your family eats)
* Crush a bunch of crackers.   Add garlic salt, pepper or Italian seasoning to taste.  (Or dry ranch dressing for a different Wednesday night)
* Drag the egg-y chicken through the cracker crumbs and put in a baking dish
* Cube up 1 stick of butter (into cheese-sized cubes) and scatter around the dish
* Bake @ 375 for 40 minutes (for large breasts) or about 20 for tenderloin strips

Variations by mom . . . .
* I said Italian seasoning above
* Ranch dressing, dry packets also change things up bit
* Try this with smashed up goldfish crackers instead of Ritz . . . or use both for fun.   I've done this with red goldfish for kindergarten 'red day' and have done it w/ red and green for holidays . . . .
