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.

This photo shows you what the chicken tenders are going to look like, and you can expect that lovely crispy coating to be just how it looks in the picture. You do not have to deep-fry to get a crunchy result, and this recipe does not take that long either. You can make these from scratch in about half an hour. In the picture they are served with fries and a simple salad. We would also add some dipping sauce to the plate, perhaps ketchup or ranch dressing. Serve these hot from the oven for the best results.
