Select ingredients:


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Season chicken breasts with Old Bay seasoning, 1/4 tsp. of seasoning per side, or 1/2 tsp. per chicken breast.
  2. Place chicken breasts in a greased 9x13 baking dish, and bake chicken breasts for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from oven, and allow to cool. Turn heat down to 350 F.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine cream of chicken soup, sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and garlic powder. Mix to thoroughly combine.
  4. Stir in salt and pepper, and season to taste.
  5. Gently fold crab meat into the cream mixture.
  6. Once chicken breasts are slightly cooled, shred them apart inside the baking dish. Cover the entire bottom of the dish with shredded chicken.
  7. Spoon the creamy crab mixture directly on top of the chicken, spreading it out to cover all of the shredded chicken.
  8. In a medium bowl, mix the finely crushed crackers with Parmesan cheese.
  9. Sprinkle the cracker mixture over the top of the dish, evenly coating all of the creamy crab mix.
  10. Bake at 350 F for 10-15 minutes.
  11. Remove from oven, garnish with chopped parsley, and serve hot!
