This baked chicken tenders recipe tastes like the kind of chicken strips you'd get in a restaurant. But you don't have to fry these crispy tenders to get that wonderful crispy coating. Crushed croutons give these tenders their lovely texture. Kids love this recipe. Serve with honey mustard or ketchup for dipping.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 cups garlic croutons
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon water
- Dashes of hot sauce (to taste)
- 1/2 cup flour
- Dash of kosher salt and black pepper
- 2 pounds chicken tenders
Preheat oven to 425 F. Drizzle olive oil onto a large baking sheet.
Place croutons in a food processor. Pulse until the croutons form crumbs. Pour on a large plate or shallow dish. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, water and hot sauce together. Set aside.
Season flour with salt and pepper. Spread in a shallow dish or large plate. Set aside.
Season chicken tenders with salt and pepper.
Make a breading station by lining up the bowls/plates in the following order:
- baking dish
- crushed croutons
- egg mixture
- seasoned flour
- chicken tenders
Using tongs, dip the chicken tenders in the flour, shaking off the excess, then the egg mixture, then roll the chicken tenders in the crushed croutons, and place on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake the tenders 7 minutes. Turn, and bake another 5 to 8 minutes until chicken tenders are crispy and cooked through.
Serve with honey mustard or ketchup for dipping.
