    CHRISSYG's Note:

    This came out of a cookbook I bought for my daughter… but I have to admit that I really like it too! It’s a great recipe for your kids to help you make, and they think it’s so cool to cook with Cheez-it’s!

    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 cups Cheez-It crackers (or similar, small cheddar flavored crackers)
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/4 cup water
    • nonstick cooking spray (such as Pam)
    • 1 lb chicken tenders (or boneless skinless breasts, cut into strips)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil (or silpat if you have it).
    3. 3
      Place the Cheez-it’s in a zip-lock baggie and give it to your kid to play catch, touch football, whatever. Smack the back a few times with a rolling pin… get the cheese-it’s crushed, but don’t worry if there are some larger pieces. Pour into a shallow bowl or plate.
    4. 4
      Crack the eggs into a bowl and add the water. Whisk together until combined well. (something else your child can do!).
    5. 5
      Dip the chicken in the egg mixture, then roll around in the crushed Cheez-it’s (kids love this part!)
    6. 6
      Place on the cookie sheet, continue until all the chicken is coated.
    7. 7
      Lightly spray all coated chicken with the cooking spray.
    8. 8
      Bake at 350°F about 15 -20 minutes (start checking the smaller ones after 10 minutes. I always pull them out as they get cooked through so that the smallest isn’t incinerated by the time the largest piece is done cooking).

      I liked this recipe but it tasted like it was missing something. I added garlic salt and onion powder to the egg, replaced the water with milk and it was a lot better. super easy and pretty tasty so 4 stars, but I need to play with it more to find the 5th star.

      I love this recipe. However it can be a bit bland unless you add something. CelticLady had some great suggestions. One thing that I have found that makes it better is to mix the crackers with grated parmesan cheese, and a pinch of cayenne pepper if you like a little kick. It adds an extra demension of flavor. Very tasty.
