Parmesan-Crusted Chicken Tenders

Chicken is so versatile, you can fix it so many different ways.  I spotted this recipe not to long ago and decided to give it a try and it turned out very well.  The tenders were just that, very tender and they had a nice crispy crust without the mess of frying.

I served it with home prepared honey-mustard dipping sauce, which was nothing more than some Miracle Whip with a little squirt of prepared yellow mustard and a drizzle of honey all mixed up together.    It would also be great with some warm marinara sauce as well, you get to choose....or serve with both!

I served this with the Au Gratin Potatoes (also posted on the blog) and green beans.

Parmesan-Crusted Chicken Tenders


Canola or olive oil cooking spray
1/4 cup flour
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
1 cup coarse dry Italian bread crumbs
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pound chicken tenders

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.  Place a large wire rack on a baking sheet and coat with cooking spray.
  1. Place flour in a shallow dish.  Lightly beat the eggs in another shallow dish.  Combine the Parmesan, bread crumbs, garlic powder and salt in a third shallow dish.
  2. Coat each tender in flour, shaking off any excess.
  3. Dip in egg and let any excess drip off.
  4. Roll in the breadcrumb mixture.
  5. Place on the prepared rack.
  6. Generously coat the top of each tender with cooking spray.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven, turn each tender, and coat with cooking spray.
  9. Return to oven and continue baking for 10 additional minutes.
  10. Serve tenders with dipping sauce.
