Cheddar Chicken

This is a huge favorite here at our house. So much better than any chicken nuggets you can buy also. My kids love to eat them with ranch dressing.

Cheddar Chicken

Cheddar Chicken


  • 2-3 lb package of chicken tenders
  • 2 sleeves Ritz crackers, finely crushed
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/4 t pepper
  • 3 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 t parsley flakes
  • 1/2 mayo


Preheat oven to 400.

Grease a 9×13 pan or large baking sheet.

In a small dish or pan (I use a pie plate) mix together the cheese, cracker crumbs, parsley, salt, and pepper. (I have been using my KitchenAid Food Processor to blend it all together but this step isn’t absolutely necessary.)

Coat each piece of chicken with mayo and then roll in the cheese and cracker crumb mix.

Place the chicken in the greased pan.

Cover the pan with foil and bake for 30- 35 minutes.

Remove the foil, bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the chicken is golden brown and crispy.

    I made this last night and sent the leftovers to a neighbor. We had mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, and some sauteed yellow squash with the chicken.
    Well, the neighbor made sure to tell me how much enjoyed it when I saw him this morning. Mr. Awesome also told me this evening that all he heard about today, all day long, was how good this chicken was.
    If you haven’t already given this recipe I try I encourage you to do so soon!
