Baked Chicken Tenders

Baked Chicken Tenders 

1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley or a heaping 1/2 Tablespoon of dry
salt and pepper, optional

1/4 cup milk
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
olive oil or melted butter

(Additional ingredients for Garlic Lover's Version)
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 to 2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Slice chicken breast halves into nice strips or leave whole.

Dip in milk.
Then in mixture of bread crumbs, Parmesan, parsley, and salt/pepper. For a thicker crust you could dip in dry, then wet, then back in dry.
Lay on greased cookie sheet.  Mist/drizzle with a little olive oil spray or drizzle with melted butter.
(If you are doing the garlic lovers version mix melted butter, garlic, and lemon to drizzle over instead.)
Bake tenders at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  If you do whole halves then bake for 25-30 minutes.
Enjoy on a salad or dipped in your favorite dipping sauce (like Honey BBQ ) Great cold for school lunches.


  1. G'day! Always a great recipe when you want something quick and yum Jenny!

  2. I love that these are baked not fried! Not only are they healthier, they're probably a lot cheaper than buying chicken nuggets from the freezer section at the grocery.
