Crispy Cheddar Chicken Tenders


We had this chicken for dinner last night and it was SOOOO delicious!  I was disappointed that I was only able to eat two chicken tenders - I wanted eat all of this.  The best thing about this chicken is the sauce.  Food snobs need to go ahead and look away now.  The sauce is made with cream of chicken soup and it is so tasty.  It reminded me of another one of my favorite dishes - Chicken Roll Ups.  Make this tonight - I promise you won't be disappointed!!





Crispy Cheddar Chicken Tenders
inspired by JamieCooksItUp
(Printable Recipe)

2 lbs chicken tenders
1/2 sleeve Club crackers (or Ritz)
1 1/2 Cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 tsp Ranch dressing mix
dash pepper

2 eggs
2 Tbsp milk

1 can (10 3/4 oz) cream of chicken soup (I used Healthy Request)
2 Tbsp sour cream
1/4 cup milk
1 Tbsp butter
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp dried parsley

Preheat oven to 400.

In the bowl of a food processor, combine crackers, cheese, Ranch mix and pepper.  Pulse until you have fine crumbs.  Pour into shallow bowl.

In a shallow bowl, whisk together 2 eggs and 2 Tbsp milk.

Dip chicken tenders into egg mixture and then coat in cracker crumbs.  Place chicken on foil lined baking pan.  Repeat with remaining chicken tenders.

Bake for 12-15 minutes.

While chicken bakes, whisk together soup, butter, sour cream, milk, pepper and parsley.  Bring to a boil and simmer until chicken is done.  Spoon sauce over baked chicken.

  1. Before reading a word, I was hooked on the coating - it looks perfect. Both it and the sauce will be tried here soon.

  3. This looks completely yummy! Anything with a cracker crust has me drooling. Love how simple this is too using everyday pantry items.

  4. Wish I had seen this recipe last night. I ended up make cornflake fried chicken with my tenders. But this looks SO much better :-)

  5. Does this freeze OK (without the sauce)?

  6. 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar I'm assuming? Can't imagine it'd be anything else.

    I think my daughter would LOVE this.

  7. Barbara - I did use cheddar cheese, but I am sure it would taste fine with your favorite cheese.

  8. What is the unit of measurement on the cheddar cheese? The recipe currently states 1 1/2. I'm going to guess that it's TBSP and make this for dinner tonight.

  12. Beautiful dish! I don't care if it does use canned soup. Then again, I wrapped bacon around tater tots ;) I'm not exactly a food snob, lol.

  13. Great recipe and we grilled the chicken. I did not make this sauce this time but will try it later. The recipe is a keeper and everyone loved it! Thanks :)

  14. Tried it--didn't care for the sauce. The soup taste is still too strong.

    So the last one I ate without the sauce, and it tasted much better that way. The coating was really good.

  15. Found this recipe on pinterest earlier this year and I make it all the time because my husband and I love it so much. The sauce takes it over the top!

  17. Sara - potatoes would be good - you can put some of the sauce on top. We had rice-a-roni and Lima beans with this.

  18. Wow, I made this last night. LOVED IT! I loved the sauce as well. My 4 year old insisted on using ketchup instead because "I don't like sauce, mommy", but he still seemed to love it. I made the Parmesan Basil Orzo with it, and also had some leftover fresh green beans with the mean.

  19. LOVED this! Altered it a bit for more of a "Southern style baked" feel and my family fell in love. Mentioned you in my blog! http://cookingmomma-nos.blogspot.com/2012/10/whats-for-dinner-monday-baked-cheddar.html
