My recipe of the day is for oven-baked Parmesan chicken tenders as part of the monthly Improv Cooking Challenge.

The topic for this month  is to create a recipe using both crackers and cheese.  Since both of those make an excellent coating for chicken,  I decided to combine the two into an easy to make and bake family  dinner.

First crush  the crackers in  a bag with a rolling  pin and mix  with  seasonings.

Pound the  chicken to  be a little more flattened.

Mix the  mayo and butter to give the crumbs something to stick to, keep it moist, and help it brown.

Then just bake,  turing to cook them evenly.

All cooked up, serve with  your favorite dipping sauce!

These are wonderful served up with some oven baked fries and a side salad. Easy, casual, and  perfect for a fun meal everyone  will enjoy.
