made this and it was delicious, but was wondering of anyone has suggestions to help the cheese stick to the chicken better. we used a block of cheddar that we grated. also for the ritz crackers, we used the butter garlic flavored ones.

this was great, its now one of the kids favorites, i didn't make the sauce and made some minor changes, we used bacon flavored ritz crackers and eggs instead of milk. i didn't use the food processor, i let the kids crush them. great dish.

Try dredging your chicken in flour or cornstarch before dipping the egg milk. This should give it a stickier surface for cheese and Ritz to adhere to.

You'd think they would check the recipe , cheddar cheese does not stick to milk.

I think cornstarch in the first pan, milk and egg second, cheese third ritz 4th...try that see if batter will stick..

I, too, had trouble getting the cheese to stick. But I just dumped excess and crumbs on top.
