I love seeing those NEW tags show up at Publix. Serving up the same things all the time can be monotonous so finding a new product is a great way to shake things up a bit. And, like I tell my boys all of the time…it’s hard to find another favorite thing if you don’t take the chance and try something new every once in a while!

I knew when I spotted the NEW RITZ Seasoned Coating Mix in the baking aisle that I just had to try them.

After all, you just can’t beat the taste of a RITZ Cracker. So I figured using them as a coating is sure to be a good thing! And…I was absolutely right!

Now, I have been using crushed RITZ Crackers for years in lots of my favorite recipes. I have a RITZ Crackers Chicken recipe that my guys absolutely love.

BUT, it takes a little bit of effort to get things ready in order to make the recipe. Before, I had to pull out a bunch of crackers, put them in a bag and then use my rolling pin to crush them so I could then have them ready to use. Now, I get to skip a bunch of steps and simply open the pouch and dinner is ready in a flash.

And you can use the new coating mix in so many different ways. I whipped up a batch of Buffalo Chicken Bites for a recent game day gathering. Everyone loved them and just kept raving about how great they tasted. I swear that the entire batch was gone in under 5 minutes!

You might want to have a couple of pouches handy so you can serve up something tasty this holiday season. Just hit the baking aisle at Publix and grab a pouch of NEW RITZ Seasoned Coating Mix and a few other ingredients. Serve up a batch at your next gathering and watch them disappear in a flash.
