Baked Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders

These honey mustard marinated, cornflake and parmesan crusted, baked chicken tenders are the 2nd recipe I’ve made and am sharing with y’all as a part of my participation in the Hellmann’s Chicken Change Up program.


Last month, I talked about our busy lives and shared with y’all my time saving Baked Chicken with Cream Sauce recipe that I made using Hellmann’s Mayonnaise.

It was easy, delicious, and best of all – quick!


This month for my Hellmann’s Chicken Change Up recipe – I’m talking about Picky Eaters and sharing a crazy delicious chicken tenders recipe that will have your pickiest eaters licking their fingers and asking for more.

Don’t shake your head at me or roll your eyes.  I’m serious.

My daughter stuck her nose in the air and straight up told me… I’m not eating any chicken that you make with cereal.



(Cue me grabbing my hair and checking for 27 MORE gray hairs at the attitude and stubbornness that surely have my dad laughing and making snarky comments about karma.)

Monkey, in all his peace-making-everyone-happy way, told her to just try one bite to make Mom happy.

(Cue my heart bursting)

For once, I actually followed a recipe to the letter (I know!) and I must admit, I’m rather pleased with the results – and the kids were, too!

Even Little Miss Nose in The Air LOVED these and asked if she could help make them next time.  And there WILL be a next time.

  1. I can hardly WAIT to try these chicken strips. This is something I actually think my 3 year old will eat! SO excited!

  2. BTW- I am a huge “Deceptively Delicious” fan, but since I already have both of Mrs. Seinfeld’s books I would love to get my hands on the “Substituting Ingredients” book. The bento boxes look adorable as well!

  3. And I love the sandwich cutters (trying to make sandwiches a more interesting and fun lunch choice around here), but I think my five year old would most love to have the chopsticks.

  4. This looks delicious & so simple! I never would have thought it could be done in a healthy way and still look and taste so good. Thanks for another healthy recipe!

  5. My favorite picky eater recipe is chicken strips prepared in any simple way. They should love this recipe and I do plan to try it. Even the just “peanut butter, please” eater will eat chicken strips!

  6. The item in the giveaway that most appeals to me is the Match & Munch puzzle sandwich cutter. All items look very nice, but since I keep my 3 pre-K grandchildren daily, this would be really fun to use at lunchtime.

  7. Not entering the give away but definitely going to try these chicken tenders on a picky eater in my house…ME! Thanks for the recipe 🙂

  8. My picky eater pleasing recipe is my sneaky vegetable muffins. Carrot spice and Zucchini. I also throw in black beans in the brownies for picky little guy. I also make a sneaky spaghetti sauce packed full of pureed veggies. Your chicken looks so good and I think my picky little guy would eat it.

  9. For the picky eater items. The match and munch sandwich maker and the substituting ingredients cookbook would be great ones for our house.

  10. My favorite picky eater recipe is spaghetti sauce. I can hide so many good veggies in the sauce and my kids never know. Thanks for the giveaway!

  11. I have to say, your baked honey mustard chicken tenders recipe looks the best to me! 😉 I hope you win!

  12. I’d love to have the substituting ingredients cookbook! It seems like I’m always looking for substitutions & always have to refer to the internet.

  13. I’m the picky eater in my household lol! And that means nothing too daring, no tofu or squid or anything like that. Just basic meats, potatoes, maybe a few veggies. Chicken, mushrooms, onions, and cheese always goes over well in our house!

  14. Hmmm, favorite picky eater recipe? Mine aren’t picky! Generally. I think right now I have to go with miso glaze. I can put it on salmon and my “I hate salmon” child will wolf it down. Yum!

  15. And I so want the bento boxes. I actually have the laptop lunchboxes for the wee ones for school, but I want more more more 😉 For me, ya know.
