My kids are addicted to chicken nuggets. Thankfully they love Homemade Chicken Nuggets, but my husband and I get sick of eating them so often. I was playing with some different recipes of a more “grown-up” version of chicken nuggets and came up with these. My husband and I loved them, the kids loved them . . . it was a win-win situation! The grown-ups dipped these strips in a homemade honey mustard sauce (which I included the recipe below . . . it was delicious!), but the kids still preferred ketchup. :)

Parmesan Sesame Chicken Strips
35 Ritz crackers (butter flavor)
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 skinless/boneless chicken breasts (about 2 lbs worth)
1 cup light mayonnaise
2 teaspoons dried minced onion
2 teaspoons ground mustard

Cover a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Place crackers in a Ziploc bag and roll over them with a rolling pin until they are finely crushed. In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, onion, and mustard. In a second bowl, combine crushed crackers, sesame seeds, and Parmesan cheese. Cut chicken lengthwise into 1/4″ strips. Dip strips into mayonnaise mixture, then into crumb mixture. Place chicken on foil-covered baking sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Serve with honey mustard (or ketchup!).

Killer Homemade Honey Mustard
1/2 cup mayonnaise (light works great)
2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
3 Tablespoons Honey
1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice

Combine all ingredients and enjoy!

    I made these for my parents and I usually don’t comment on some of these sites, but I had to this time because it was soooo good! Such an easy recipe to follow and made just enough for all of us. This is a must try, especially if you have kids. :)

    I’ve made this recipe at least 10 times and my family absolutely love it! I’ve added some extra spices and you may need to cook it slightly longer than the directions say. My husband and two young boys bug me for it all the time! My husband doesn’t even like mayo but he loves this! I’ve even used different types of crackers, even down to saltines and it’s still great! Thank you so much for this recipe! It’s a staple around our house! :)
