Oven-Fried Chicken Tenders

The delicious chicken tenders taste deep-fried but they are in fact oven-baked. Use Italian-style or regular panko crumbs to coat them, and you can be assured of a nice, crispy coating. If you want them extra crispy you can drizzle a couple tablespoons of melted butter over them before baking. Serve the cooked tenders with your favorite dipping sauce, perhaps ranch dressing, honey mustard, barbeque sauce or marinara sauce.

This is a great recipe for kids and adults alike, because everyone loves crispy chicken. The chicken is dipped in flour, then in egg and finally in parmesan breadcrumbs, so you can expect plenty of flavor. Serve the tenders with fries or potato salad, and perhaps some vegetables too. You can buy a package of chicken tenders or else just cut up a chicken breast to make your own. The strips should be about an inch thick. Make them thinner or thicker if you wish, but an inch works well. Try to get them all about the same size, so they cook evenly and in the same amount of time.

This is a really easy recipe to follow and it is ideal for beginners. It will serve 4, offering about 330 calories per serving, which is much less than if you were to deep-fry the chicken. So if you want that fried chicken flavor and crunch without the associated fat content, opt for oven-fried chicken instead, because it comes out very similar.
