Cheez-It Chicken

My friend Trina texted me a recipe the other day that she thought I would like.  Once I saw how easy it was, I knew I just had to try it!  The best part was that I already had the ingredients.  Chances are, if you have kids, you have the ingredients too!  Thanks Trina and Winner Dinners for this easy, delish recipe...we'll definitely be having it again soon!  :)

Cheez-It Chicken
8 chicken tenders (I am funny about chicken tenders...don't like the tendons in them - YUCK, so I just sliced 3 chicken breasts into strips)
1 cup sour cream (I only used about 1/2 a cup and used Light sour cream)
3 cups Cheez-Its, crushed
1/2 cup butter, melted (I only used about 1/4 cup)
Here goes EASY...crush the Cheez-Its in a large ziploc bag.  Preheat the oven to 375.  Roll the chicken tenders in the sour cream and then in the Cheez-It crumbs.  Place them in a baking dish.  Drizzle with the melted butter.  Bake at 375 for 40 minutes.  Seriously, it doesn't get easier than this!  Only 4 ingredients and about 4 minutes of prep time.  Dinner is served!
This chicken turns out really moist on the inside, but super crunchy on the outside.  My 5 year old devoured it and even said at one point that it tasted like Chick-fil-A...SCORE!  BIG mommy points there!  Enjoy!  :)

  2. We loved it too! I too should have only used half a cup of sour cream. I ended up wasting too much. And I cut three chicken breasts too! It was a huge hit in my house! Glad your fam loved it too!!
