How To Make This Chicken Tenders Recipe

Buy white chicken breasts already cut into strips, or buy breasts and cut them yourself, just make
sure to cut them into reasonably uniform sizes so that they will cook evenly.
In a bowl, season the chicken strips generously, and set aside.
In a skillet, melt butter and then turn the stove burner off.
Add panko breadcrumbs to the butter and mix well. The breadcrumbs will quickly soak up the butter
like it was never there.
Break eggs into a bowl and whisk.
In another bowl, add flour. Season the flour. Seasoning the flour and the chicken and adding the butter to the
breadcrumbs all combine to make these oven baked tenders so awesome.
Line a large baking sheet with aluminium foil and lightly coat with oil.
Take a chicken strip and dredge it in the flour, then coat it in the egg, and then roll it in the breadcrumbs until
the chicken strip is well breaded.
Place the chicken strip onto the lightly oiled pan and repeat until all of the chicken strips have been prepared.
The strips should be arranged on the pan with a slight space between each one.
Bake in an oven at 425 degrees F for 20-25 minutes, turning once about halfway through the cooking time.
Serve chicken tenders while hot, right out of the oven.

Chicken tenders go great with a dipping sauce. Ranch dressing is a favorite, along with blue cheese dressing,
BBQ sauce, and honey mustard.

Chicken fingers make a great salad topping, too –it’s a decadent way to incorporate a nice salad into your day.
