Oven-Fried Chicken Tenders Recipe: My daughter wanted to have happy meals for her play date today because they “needed” to have some chicken nuggets. Instead of fast food, I decided to make both of us happy and make some oven-fried chicken tenders and create our own “fun meal”!
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon water
1 cup Panko
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon dry ranch seasoning
1 package chicken breasts
Heat oven to 425 F. Lightly grease a cooking sheet.
Cut the chicken breast into thin strips. You will need three shallow dishes. Dish one add the flour. Dish two will be the egg beaten with water. In dish three add the Panko, Parmesan cheese and dry ranch seasoning.
Coat the chicken in the flour, then dip into the egg mixture, then coat with the bread crumb mixture. Place on baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes, turning once, until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and the coating is golden brown. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
I picked up a couple of baskets to keep on hand for our fun meals in the dollar section. I lined them with a coffee filter and put the chicken with some french fries in them. The girls are all smiles! They were happy to have a special treat and I am happy knowing exactly what they are eating.
