Cheaters Chicken Parm

4 large chicken breasts
Italian salad dressing, or other good chicken marinade
1 stick butter
1 sleeve of crushed ritz crackers
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 cups grated cheese mozzarella or provolone cheese
pepper to taste
italian seasoning to taste
1 1/2 cups marinara sauce

Fillet chicken breasts, slicing them right down the center, forming two thinner breasts. Marinate in salad dressing for 2 hours. Melt butter in a shallow bowl. Combine crushed crackers, parmesan, pepper and italian seasoning in another shallow bowl. Dip marinated chicken breasts into butter, then pat them until covered in the cracker mixture. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes. Spoon on a generous dollop of marinara sauce on each piece, then smother with cheese. Set oven to broil, and place cookie sheet on top rack for about 3 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Enjoy!

Sometimes I just buy the chicken tenders and place each one between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound them thin with a frying pan. This way a little bit of chicken goes a long way and they cook faster.
Thanks for the tips!
