Easy Baked Chicken Tenders

My kids love chicken tenders and I was looking for a way to make them at home. This is a quick and easy recipe that makes delicious chicken. I loved how simple it was and that my family loved them. Because they’re dreaded in olive oil instead of butter, it brings a whole new level of flavor – plus they’re on the healthier side. They’re crusted with a combination of panko breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese, which makes them super crunchy.

While they this is not the best picture, trust me, they’re so good. I’ll definitely be making them again!

Baked chicken tenders | Join Us, Pull up a Chair
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp fresh ground pepper
1 1/2 lbs chicken tenders
1/4 cup olive oil

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray a non-stick pan with cooking spray and set aside.

In a shallow bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, cheese and spices. Mix together. In a plate with a lip, pour in the olive oil. Dread a chicken tender in oil and then place in the breadcrumb mixture. Toss to evenly coat. Shake any excess off and place on the prepared baking sheet. Continue until all chicken tenders are coated.

Bake for 25 minutes, flipping the chicken over once. Remove from the oven and serve with your favorite dipping sauce. My family enjoyed them with honey mustard.
