Whether you’re looking for a quick and easy meal to make on a busy weeknight or a tasty snack to enjoy while watching the game, chicken tenders are a great choice. In this blog post, we’ll share a delicious and easy chicken tenders recipe that you can make at home.
- 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp milk
- 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Cooking oil, for frying
Preheat your oven to 200°F (93°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut the chicken breasts into strips, about 1 inch wide.
In a shallow bowl, mix together the flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper.
In another shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk.
In a third shallow bowl, combine the panko breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese.
Dip each chicken strip into the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
Dip the chicken strip into the egg mixture, making sure it is coated all over.
Finally, coat the chicken strip in the panko mixture, pressing the breadcrumbs onto the chicken to ensure they stick.
Repeat with the remaining chicken strips.
In a large skillet, heat about 1 inch of cooking oil over medium-high heat until hot.
Fry the chicken strips in the oil until golden brown, turning occasionally to ensure they cook evenly. This should take about 3-4 minutes per side.
Once cooked, remove the chicken strips from the oil using a slotted spoon and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
Keep the cooked chicken strips warm in the preheated oven while you cook the remaining chicken.
Once all the chicken strips are cooked, serve them hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
