Cookies, Crackers and Cluckers!



Fall is here....which I guess I interpreted as - Falling off the Blogging train!!! I have been busy with nothing and everything, and blogging seemed so easy to let "Fall" by the wayside - But I'm back!!!!
The other night I was faced with the task of eating chicken one more time! In an attempt to be creative - I went pantry diving. Usually my pantry diving is met with "No way Mom", "I'd never eat that combo mom" and my favorite "Well - if you made it - would I HAVE to try it?". This was not the case when I re-entered the kitchen with this combo!



I told my girls I was going to put crackers and cookies on their chicken - and there was applause from the peanut gallery!

I washed and dried my chicken tenders. Blended one sleeve of Ritz Crackers (approximately 35 crackers), 8 Nilla Waffer cookies, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in my food processor. Dipped my chicken in a beaten egg and then rolled them in the cracker "concoction". I placed them directly on a cookie sheet and baked them for 20 minutes in a 400 degree oven.
My kids and I agreed - it was our favorite nuggets ever! The Pantry diving paid off - and my family actually enjoy another chicken dinner!



Serve this and tell your kids they are getting cookies, crackers and cluckers for dinner tonight!

Yumm..I like the addition of the Nilla Wafers and cinnamon for a little sweetness! You really did creative and it worked :-)

You are so clever. I need to go pantry diving and hope to come up with a winning combination like that one!

That sounds so yummy! I try to make stuff with weird ingredients so my kids don't ask me what's in it until they have tried it.

I have these ingredients on hand too, so maybe they will be surprised!!
