Cracker-Crusted Chicken Tenders

Cracker-Crusted Chicken Tenders


Cracker-crusted chicken tenders are a great way to use up the last of the crackers in the pantry that no one will eat!


  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 pounds chicken tenders, about 10 tenders
  • 2 cups cracker crumbs ((process in the food processor or blender. Measure after.))
  • kosher salt and ground pepper, as needed
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • sauces for dipping


  1. Set oven to 400 degrees F. Spray baking sheet with non-stick spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine egg, flour and mayonnaise. Whisk well to combine. Add chicken tenders, completely coating each one.
  3. Add cracker crumbs to a pie plate. Add salt and pepper if needed. Add parsley. Stir to combine. Add coated chicken tenders one at a time, being sure each one is completely covered in crumbs. Transfer to baking sheet and repeat with the remaining tenders.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until an inserted thermometer reaches 165 degrees F. Serve with any dipping sauces you prefer.
