3-cheese ranch chicken... 30 minutes

the goods:

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 sleeve Ritz crackers
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated or shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
2 teaspoons garlic salt
pepper to taste
Dry Ranch dressing/seasoning packet
2 tablespoons ranch dressing (I use homemade)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place crackers in a zip-top bag and crush by hand (let your kids go nuts). Then take a rolling pin to the bag to finish them off. Nice and crumbly now? Good. Add the cheese, seasonings and dry ranch mix to the crackers. (Keep in bag if you want to toss the chicken or move to a shallow dish if you want to coat them that way.) Coat chicken in a thin layer of ranch dressing, then coat in the cracker/cheese mixture. Place chicken in a glass baking dish, and cook for 20 minutes (maybe more if you have thicker breasts).
