    These tenders were delicious and so easy to prepare. I used multigrain crackers which included sesame seeds and a jar of chicken gravy. I made a smaller amount for the two of us but we cleaned our plates. I highly recommend this recipe. Volunteer Field Editor

    This was a really quick and easy fried chicken tenders recipe. The chicken was really tender and cooked all the way through. The sesame crackers gave it a great flavor.

    These are good, I made them with adding garlic powder to the crackers. It was yummy, there was no left overs. I made it again and used almond butter thin crackers instead with a box of plain Panko crumbs and everyone loved it and liked it better than the first time.
