Goldfish® crackers give a cheesy crunch to baked chicken- kid friendly and a perfect recipe to make with the kids help.
I love getting my kids involved in the kitchen. It’s not always easy, or possible, with them being so young still. I’ve found that the more involved they are, the better they eat. My kids have helped me make meatballs for Sweet and Sour Meatballs and Healthy Meatball Subs and they love making gnocchi! I thought they would love helping me make this cheesy and crispy baked chicken.
My kiddos loved crushing the Goldfish crackers for the breading. They were laughing and giggling as they used their hands to crunch them up. You could also use a zip top bag and a rolling pin- whatever is best suited to their ages. I also let them coat the chicken in the egg wash and then cover them in the Goldfish crackers. It was a lot of fun for them and made me happy to see them enjoying themselves in the kitchen, a total win-win situation.
There were a few different varieties of Goldfish crackers available in the chip aisle at Walmart in the bulk cartons including the pretzel Goldfish which are one of my favorites. Goldfish crackers are great for a quick snack and we like to toss them into our tomato soup. The Goldfish crusted chicken and tomato soup were an awesome pairing. I snagged some rainbow baby carrots at the grocery store because I’ve found the kids are much more likely to try colorful colored veggies.
I love the simplicity of this recipe and how with just a few ingredients you can make a kid- friendly and kid-made meal. There are so many ways to use Goldfish in creative ways so make sure to check out the Goldfish Mix page for more great ideas!
