Cheese-Its Chicken Strips

     My daughter found the picture for this recipe somewhere on the internet and forwarded it to me with the plea, "Mom, can we make this when I come home?" It's hard to say no when it comes to cooking and trying new dishes. 
    This was interesting for a few reasons. I have never used sour cream as a coating agent before. Mayonnaise was an experiment once, but not sour cream. It coated the chicken very well.
     It was also interesting because this is very similar to how I make Grippo's chicken strips. This recipe uses Cheese-Its, which now come in an assortment of flavors. We tried the chipotle flavor and thought it was great, but any flavor will work.

Cheese-Its Chicken Strips
3 chicken breasts, cut in half
1 cup sour cream
3 cups Cheese-Its crackers, any flavor, crushed
1/8 cup butter, softened

Place sour cream in a wide, low bowl. 
Put crackers in a large freezer bag and crush with rolling pin.

Coat chicken in sour cream and then place in bag and shake to coat.
Place in baking dish and cook for 30 minutes.
