This amazingly flavorful and easy to put together Crispy Southwest Chicken is fabulous! If you are a long time reader, you may know of the Crispy Cheddar Chicken recipe that is living in my archives. It is, by far, my most viewed recipe of all time. Click here to see it. I have been wanting to make a version that is loaded with southwest flavor and the recipe I brought along to share with you today, is just that! Chicken strips are coated with southwest seasonings, two kinds of cheese and dredged in buttery cracker crumbs. Baked in the oven, the chicken remains tender while the cheese and crumbs melt together to form a crispy coating that is out of this world. A creamy gravy is poured over the chicken sending it right over the top. It’s kind of like fried chicken and gravy, only the chicken is baked (not fried) and is loaded with southwest flavor.

You could serve it all on its own with a crisp green salad. It would also be amazing in a warm tortilla or served with a side of Cilantro Lime Rice and warm black beans.

Hope some of you get a chance to try it!

    I wanted to print for the future the Crispy Southwest Chicken recipe and couldn’t. It would be nice if it were “print friendly”

      If you have Pinterest, Norm, you might put it there. Then you can refer to it anytime. I have tried to get her recipe for Crispy Cheddar Chicken but unfortunately it never shows up so I’ll take my own advice and search for it on Pinterest.
