Ingredients

Nonstick spray, for sheet pan

2 cups Goldfish cheese crackers, well crushed

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

3 large eggs

2 pounds chicken breast, sliced into strips about 2-inches long and 1/2-inch thick

1 6-inch sub roll

1 tablespoon mayonnaise

1/2 cup shredded iceberg lettuce

3 to 4 Goldfish chicken tenders

Pickled banana peppers

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick spray (or brush with oil). Crush the crackers: Place the crackers in a zip-top plastic bag and seal it. Using your hands, a rolling pin, a mallet, or the hands of your children, crush the Goldfish as much as you can, but don't turn them into flour. You want some inconsistencies in shape; it'll make for better texture. Prep the assembly line: Find three medium bowls. Stir together the flour, salt, and pepper in one. Whisk the eggs together in the second bowl. Add the crushed Goldfish crackers to the last one. Bread the chicken: Working with a few pieces of chicken at a time, add to seasoned flour and coat well. Then shake off any extra flour, move to the eggs and coat well, and finally add to crushed Goldfish. Press the Goldfish on so they really stick and form a good crust. Transfer coated chicken to the baking sheet. Repeat until all the chicken tenders are coated. Bake the chicken: Bake chicken tenders for about 20 minutes until they are cooked through, or reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F in the thickest part of the tenders. You can also test one of the thicker ones by cutting it in half and making sure it’s cooked through. There’s no need to flip these, but you can flip them halfway through if they are browning too much on one side. Serve tenders while warm with a veggie and/or side salad and any dips you want, such as ketchup or bbq sauce. My kids loved honey! You can also make the Dad Add and have a sandwich! How to Reheat Leftover Tenders You will probably have leftovers, which will keep for 3 to 4 days in the fridge. They reheat perfectly, but they will get soggy if you reheat them in the microwave. Either reheat them gently in a nonstick skillet over low heat until warmed through, or put them on a baking sheet and reheat them until they’re crispy, 7 to 8 minutes.
