baked chicken tenders

Being at home with kids for any duration of time I always try and think of different things we can make for lunch time.  I mean you can only have sandwiches so many times a day during the week.  Coming off of holiday break I made these delicious Baked Chicken Tenders that were coated in Panko.  Yes… Panko… YUM!

These tenders are so simple and easy and they take no time at all to bake.  Plus, you can make them ahead of time and freeze them before the baking process or eat them right out the oven when you do bake them.  Last but not least they are healthier for you too, see there baked not fried.

Serve them with your favorite dipping sauce… you can never go wrong with barbecue, ketchup or some raw honey.

Let’s just say that after I made them they were gobbled up in 5 minutes FLAT!

I think that might be a new record for us Kennedys! HAH!

Panko crusted chicken tenders that are oven-baked and not fried... YUM!


  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless Chicken Breasts Tenders
  • 1 1/2 cups Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Oregano
  • 2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika

  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground Black Pepper, divided
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare a baking sheet, you can either cover it with foil and lightly spray with cooking spray or just spray the sheet pan itself. Place to the side.
  2. In a shallow dish, season the flour with kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. In another dish lightly beat the eggs. In a third shallow dish, combine panko breadcrumbs with oregano, garlic, paprika, seasoned salt, and other 1/2 of black pepper.
  3. Dredge tenders in the flour to coat, shaking off any excess flour. Dip the floured chicken tenders into the egg and then coat the chicken tenders with the breadcrumb mixture. Arrange on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining strips.
  4. Bake chicken tenders for 15 minutes, or until golden brown, flipping once part way through the cook time.
  5. Serve with your favorite barbecue sauce, ketchup or honey.
