Chicken tenders are a go-to lunch meal in my house so I’m always on a hunt for ways to remix them for the kids. Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies are as much of a sure thing as chicken tenders. It only makes sense that these delicious kid-friendly staples join forces. Annie’s Homegrown was nice enough to send me some cool goodies including a few of their mac and cheese varieties, 

This recipe is similar to my classic chicken tender recipe, except I use Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies instead of panko bread crumbs. The cheddar crackers take the flavor to another level.
