Yum! Cheez-It crackers and chicken fingers together in one flavorful little bite. What more could a kid--or adult--ask for?

Here's what you'll need:

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups (3 oz) Cheez-It cheddar crackers
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/4 lb raw chicken tenders
  • 1/3 cup Dijon mustard

Let's get started

  1. Put rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 475°F. Brush a baking pan with olive oil.
  2. Pulse crackers in a food processor. Transfer to a bowl; stir in pepper.
  3. Toss tenders in mustard, then dredge in crumbs.
  4. Arrange on oiled pan. Bake, turning once, until golden brown, 15 minutes.
