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.
- 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.
