These chicken tenders are one of Alex’s favorites. I made this up one night to use up some store brand ritz crackers that Alex didn’t like, and now he wants them all the time.
This night we also made green bean casserole, which is another one of Alex’s absolute favorites. Recipe for that coming soon, although it is a classic!
1 sleeve of ritz crackers, crushed
chili pepper flakes, to taste
1 lb. chicken tenders
italian seasonings, to taste
salt, pepper, to taste
1/4 cup asiago cheese, shredded
1 clove garlic, minced (or Garlic Garlic seasoning to taste)
1/4 cup minced onion
1-2 eggs (it’s possible to go without – the chicken is moist enough for the crumbs to stick!)
olive oil, for frying
Heat about 2 T olive oil over medium heat in a medium skillet. Crush the crackers and combine with asiago, salt, pepper and seasonings. Whisk the eggs and dip each tender in the egg then in the cracker mixture. Once all are breaded, cook in oil until each side is browned and crispy. Add oil as needed.
