- Be sure to check that they’re done then let sit for approximately 10 minutes.

If you prefer, you can also cook the tenders on the stove top with a little bit of olive oil. This will obviously up the calories a little because of the extra olive oil. If you go this route, cover a plate with paper towels to soak up all of the excess olive oil. Also, if you can't find the crackers, I sometimes use 3-4 Trader Joe's Veggie & Flaxseed Tortilla Chips instead. This is also delicious and low in sugars/carbs as well!
