Servings 4 servings


  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 2 inch strips
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup low sodium cracker crumbs such as Ritz or Club crackers or panko breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup everything bagel seasoning
  • 6 Tbsp butter melted and divided


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Liberally spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Alternately, fit a rimmed baking sheet with an oven safe rack. Spray with cooking spray.
  • Toss chicken pieces with flour and paprika.
  • In a shallow bowl, whisk together buttermilk and egg. In a separate dish mix together cracker crumbs with everything bagel seasoning and 2 Tbsp butter.
  • Dip chicken pieces in buttermilk allowing excess to drip off. Dredge in crumbs pressing firmly onto each piece.
  • Place on rack at least 1 inch apart. Drizzle with remaining melted butter.
  • Bake for 25-27 minutes until golden or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F and juices run clear. (Adjust time according to size and thickness)
  • Let rest for 5 minutes, then serve.


  • There's a fair amount of sodium in Everything bagel seasoning so, low sodium crackers or non seasoned crumbs work best. 
  • You may use chicken tenders in place of chicken breasts. This will reduce bake time so, adjust accordingly.
