Looking for a crowd pleasing dinner recipe? Or maybe something to serve at a party? These Baked Cheez-It Chicken Bites are a fun twist on the classic chicken nugget. The best part? There's only 4 ingredients and it only takes 15 minutes to bake!
I love an easy comfort food recipe.
Start by soaking your chicken in some full fat buttermilk. Next, crush up your Cheez-It crackers by pounding them in a plastic bag with a rolling pin (you could also blend them) until they reach a fine consistency.
Cover your buttermilk soaked chicken in the Cheez-it crumbles and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake the chicken bites in a 425 degree oven for 15 minutes and done!
These Cheez-It Chicken Bites are so addicting they will become a family favorite. They would also be a great party food for football season because they are easy to eat and who doesn't love Cheez-Its? We like to serve them with our favorite honey mustard sauce.
