Recipe by  

"Chicken strips dipped in a mayonnaise/mustard mixture, then a sesame seed/cracker crumb mixture and baked. Served with a honey mayonnaise dipping sauce. These chicken strips are very tasty, especially when dipped in the sweet sauce. These go over well at summer get-togethers and make great finger foods."

this was awesome, I did do a couple things different thought. Like some others i did add some water to the mayonaise and mustard so the coating was not as thick. I also used prepared mustard instead of dry mustard. Also some people did make the comment the the dipping sauce was bland, well that is the making of honey dill sauce all you need to do is cut back on the mayonaise add a little more honey and add some dill and it will be delicious thats what i did. FYI if you don't have the buttery round which i didn't one time that i made this, i used a combo of pretzel and corn flakes and i gave a awesome taste i have made this recipe several times already and i never seem to have the crackers. YUMMY!!!!!!!

I thought this recipe sounded tasty but kids said it was bland. I even tried to step it up a bit by using crushed french fried onions in with the cracker crumbs. I found the dipping of the chicken in the mayo mixture messy because it was so thick. That didn't make it any easier for the breading to stick. I used all the mayo in my dipping mixture so I didn't make the sauce. Our dipping sauce was ranch dressing and bbq/ranch combo sauce.

This was an awesome recipe! Moist, tender and very flavorful! I made it as a main dish by using pounded out chicken breasts (halved) and increased the cooking time to about 35 minutes. I modified the recipe by adding dijon mustard (a few tablespoons) to the final dipping sauce and thinning out the mayo/mustard dredge with some olive oil and regular mustard. I would suggest making more of the sesame/cracker crumb mix because I didnt have quite enough. Great job Erica!

These we SO easy to make and turned out INCREDIBLE!!! I used regular mustard instead of the dry and added a little more than it called for. VERY GOOD! I also added a little mustard to the dipping sauce and thought it added a little more zip. Even my 3 and 5 year olds loved it!

My grandkids love chicken tenders. We just buy the thin chicken breast and cut into strips or you can buy the chicken strips. To give them more nutrients we replaced finely grated carrots for the onions and used miricle whip in place of mayo. In place of buttery crackers we used regular non salt cracker crumbs mixed with 1/2 teaspoon to one table spoon of honey. Mix honey, miracle whip and crackers together and coat chicken, then spray shallow pan with pam or a little oil. Bake coated chicken for about 18 - to 20 minutes or until done. For dipping sauce they use honey or barbecue sauce. They loved it. Thanks for the post.

Everyone raved about these chx strips, and the kids -- 3 & 5 -- loved them. Add some of your favorite mustard (we used ballpark) to provide a little kick to the dipping sauce.

I made it with nonfat yougurt in place of the mayo to reduce the fat content, and it was good. My kids loved it.

this was a very easy and tasty recipe. I used finely chopped onion and dijon mustard instead of the powders. The dip was a little bland so I added dijon and paprika to spice it up. I will definitely use again with a sweet and sour dip.
