I am always on the hunt for an easy, kid-friendly recipe!   These easy cheesy chicken nuggets are a big hit in our house. I think I like them more than our kids.  (No exaggeration there!  They are great!)

1 box cheese-it crackers
4 Chicken Breasts

Cut up about 2-4 chicken breasts (depending on how many people you will be serving) into bite size pieces & set to the side.

In a ziplock baggie, crush up about 1/2 of a box of cheeze-it crackers (I used a rolling pin, after letting the air out of the baggie)

Dip the raw chicken bites into oil (I use olive or canola)

Take the chicken out of the oil & put them into the crushed up cheeze-its.

Coat the oiled chicken bites with the cheese-it crackers or any type of cheese cracker- they make several organic kinds if you would rather that (I just left them in the bag & threw the chicken in and shook it & repeated this until I used all of the chicken.)

Sprinkle the remaining crushed up cheeze-its on the cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.

Sprinkle with salt when they come out of the oven, if desired.

  1. Hmmm…those sound interesting. I have one child who likes Cheez-its and one who does not so I am not sure how much the recipe would go over here. I am always looking to add a little variety though and do usually have a box of those crackers in our pantry.

    1. To be honest, they don’t even taste cheesy, just good! 🙂
      I am posting a new link in a few minutes (after I finish baking them) on sausage balls & brownies. Its nap time in our house (cooking time for mom!)
      Have a great day!

  2. I bet these turned out great with the cheese crackers. I am going to have to try them on my Grandson.

  3. Stopping by from the Everyday Entrees Party! Love your cheesy chicken nuggets. My grandkids will love these. They are at my house frequently and I run out of ideas as to what to fix them to eat This is great.

  4. Stopping over from the blog hop! These sound so yummy! I have a VERY picky eater and I know he would love these! You should check out the chicken tender recipe on my blog, they may be a step longer, but easy and yummy and WW too! my “stepson” loves them!

  5. What a good idea, these sound delicious! I’ll have to try this since I know my whole family would like it – thanks!
