The way to my husband’s heart is through his stomach. My kids are well aware of this, so they asked me to help them with this special Father's Day recipe idea to serve Dad this year. Father's Day Recipe Idea: Crunchy Cheez-It® Chicken Tenders Fathers Day Recipes that Moms and Kids will Love I think we hit upon a great Father's Day recipe with these super simple Cheez-It coated chicken tenders! They’re easy enough that my kids can help me prepare them, and even the youngest of the bunch can get in on the action by helping to crush up the Cheez-It crackers.

One of my personal favorite features of this recipe is that you can get creative every time you make it by choosing a different variety of crackers. We used the new Mozzarella flavor and paired it with a honey Dijon sauce, but Hot and Spicy with salsa or Cheddar Jack and barbecue sauce would be fantastic variations.
