– 1 cup Panko breadcrumb – 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese – 1/2 cup all-purpose flour – 2 large egg – 1 1/4 lbs uncooked chicken tender – Cooking spray


Parchment a baking sheet. Mix breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, and ½ teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Put flour in another medium basin. Whisk eggs in a third medium basin.  

Step 1


Bread each chicken tender by dredging it in flour, shaking off excess, then covering it on all sides with eggs.   

Step 2

Press all sides of the chicken into the breadcrumb mixture. Place the chicken tender on the baking sheet and bread the remaining tenders, positioning them 2 inches apart.   

Step 3

Lightly coat chicken tenders with cooking spray. (This is optional but adds crunch and golden brown hue.)
