I love to dip these in barbecue sauce or ranch dressing and I like them sliced over a bed of baby lettuce. In fact, these crisp, cheesy tenders are so popular, I often have to make a double batch to feed my hungry crew. Yield: 6-7 chicken tenders

What you'll need

  • 1 cup of cheese crackers (such as Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 1/4 pounds of chicken tenders (about 6-7)

How to make it

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

  2. Place crackers, parmesan cheese and garlic in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade attachment. Pulse until crackers are finely ground. Pour into a large plate.

  3. Beat the egg and place in a large zip-top bag. Add the chicken tenders, seal tightly and shake to coat. Dredge the chicken pieces through the cracker crumbs, coating thoroughly. Shake off any excess and place tenders on a cooking sheet that has been coated with cooking spray.

  4. Drizzle the melted butter over the tenders and bake for 15-18 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking. Serve immediately with barbecue sauce or ranch dressing.
