  • Place egg in a shallow dish. Place bread crumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper into a large zip-top freezer bag and mix well. Dip 2 chicken strips into egg and then place into bread crumb mixture and shake to coat. Place coated chicken pieces onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining chicken.

  • Spray each chicken tender with cooking spray 2 times.

  • Bake tenders in the preheated oven for 7 minutes; flip, continue to bake on opposite side until no longer pink in the centers, about 7 minutes more. Remove from the oven.

  • Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Broil tenders in the preheated oven for extra crunch, about 2 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

You can marinate the tenders in light buttermilk in the refrigerator for 1 hour instead of dipping in the beaten egg.

7.5.19 First I have to say that there s no way that this chicken needs to be cooked for 14 minutes @ 450ºF and then another 2 minutes under the broiler. It s cut into 1/2-inch strips and when checked after 7 minutes it was done (I checked with a meat thermometer). They were crispy golden brown and there was no need to put them under the broiler. The breading is very tasty the cooking time just needs to be adjusted and I think you ll be happy (we were). Served this evening with honey mustard dipping sauce and they were a hit! As a side note this recipe could be easily adapted to an air fryer. Thanks for sharing your recipe I will make this again. Read More
