Crispy Cheesy Chicken

Meal planning is definitely one of those things that comes and goes in our house. There are some weeks where I have everything from breakfast to snacks to dinner all mapped out, broken down on a shopping list, and ready to go. I love those weeks; if you know me, you know that a hungry Meghan is not a good thing.

Then there are the weeks I sort of lose inspiration or don’t have time and everything is up in the air. You know, the weeks where you are scrounging around the fridge for ingredients for some semblance of a meal.

Sometimes, though, the things you have laying around make for one tasty dinner, like crispy, cheesy chicken tenders with a side of roasted broccoli.

This is a super easy recipe. I grabbed one sleeve of whole wheat crackers and pulsed them into crumbs, adding in garlic powder and black pepper to season.

I shredded about a cup of Cabot extra sharp cheddar.

Sprinkled both on the chicken, in layers. . .

And popped the chicken in a 400 degree oven until cooked through.

For a meal with just three ingredients and minimal prep time, this chicken was amazing. It was nicely cheesy and crispy and made for a perfect dinner.

I love when that happens.

Are you good at meal planning, or do you end up scrambling for dinner ideas?

    I feel like i can meal plan for about one week a month and then it all goes to leftovers or random meals like this. This is a good one!

    I am terrible at meal planning right now. We look at each other every night and ask what’s for dinner. When I have my own kitchen, I’m more like you… really with it some weeks and trying to throw things together other weeks. The chicken sounds great!

    Love recipes that use things I have in the kitchen. Some times it seems so easy I wonder why I haven’t done this before!

      No judgement at all! I am so bad at keeping time on things. I usually just keep an eye on things. For chicken, I usually cut through one of the tenders to make sure it is cooked all the way through. Hopefully that makes sense. . . I am not very technical when it comes to these things!
      Thanks for reading! :)
