Crispy Munchie Parmesan Chicken

What's for dinner? I checked out the fridge and  I had some chicken tenders, some mayo, some parmesan cheese, and some leftover Munchies (the snack with pretzels, little doritos, and cheetos) that my son didn't eat, so I decided to make crunchy chicken.  You don't have to use Munchies.  You can use whatever you have in the house such as Doritos, Cheetos, potato chips, pretzels etc.  If you don't have any of these, you can also use bread crumbs.

Preheat the oven to 425F

Mix about a 1/4 cup of mayo with 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese. I'm making about 4 chicken tenders, but if you have more, then mix more mayo and parm (1/2 cup mayo and 1/2 cup parm)
 Add the chicken to the bowl and cover with the mayo/parm mixture.
With a rolling pin or something similar, crush the munchies until they are crumbs.
Pour them onto a plate 
                                                One at a time, coat both sides of the chicken
                                  Place them on a foil lined baking sheet that's been lightly greased.
Bake in preheated oven  until done.(about 8 minutes).  Turn each piece of chicken over, and cook for about  another 8 minutes on the other side.   Cut one open to make sure it is cooked through. Delicious!
