Oven Baked Cheez-it Chicken Tenders

Total Time: 30 mins Preparation Time: 10 mins Cook Time: 20 mins


  • Servings: 4
  • 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 preheat oven to 350°f.
  • 2 line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil (or silpat if you have it).
  • 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 crack the eggs into a bowl and add the water. whisk together until combined well. (something else your child can do!).
  • 5 dip the chicken in the egg mixture, then roll around in the crushed cheez-it’s (kids love this part!)
  • 6 place on the cookie sheet, continue until all the chicken is coated.
  • 7 lightly spray all coated chicken with the cooking spray.
  • 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).
