Preheat oven to 400 degrees.* Mix together buttermilk, mustard, and cayenne pepper in a glass dish, and place crushed Cheez-It Crackers in a second dish. Dip chicken tenders in buttermilk mixture, and then lay in the crackers, pressing crackers into tenders firmly. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with a wire cooling rack. Drizzle coated chicken tenders with olive oil and bake for 18-20 minutes, until cooked through.* Optional: to make a honey Dijon dipping sauce for the side, simply combine equal parts honey and Dijon mustard to equal the quantity of sauce you need.
*Note: Adult supervision strongly recommended.
