A fun way to add a fresh new taste to your baked chicken.
Sometimes I just create things out of the need to utilize things in my pantry, like I did with this simple and flavorful way to bake chicken. My kids get on "food kicks" where they're in the mood for something specific. I buy it. They eat half of it and then it goes bad or stale before they finish it or get tired of it, whichever comes first. Sound familiar?

This time it was graham crackers and the need (or rather want) for s'mores over the summer. But stale graham crackers taste horrible so instead of throwing them away, I made them into crumbs with my food processor, added some pecans to give it a little sweet, nutty flavor, then breaded my chicken with it. DELICIOUS! You can also use this basic breading on boneless chicken, pork or fish.
