Season chicken with salt and pepper and place in prepared dish.
In a medium bowl, mix together milk, soup, paprika, and cheddar cheese.
Pour half of cheese mixture over chicken.
Scatter broccoli pieces over cheese mixture.
Top with Ritz cracker pieces and remaining cheese mixture.
Place in oven and bake for 45 minutes. (I look for small chicken breasts for this recipe. Larger ones I cut in half horizontally. You will need to increase cooking time by at least 10 minutes if your chicken breasts are larger and you do not cut them into 2 thinner pieces.)
I layered a little of the cheese sauce on top of the cracker crumbs. I like how they blend into the sauce and thicken and flavor it. If you want a crunchy topping, mix the cracker crumbs with a tablespoon or two of melted butter and sprinkle on top.I look for thin, small chicken breasts for this. Larger breasts may take longer to cook.
