These baked chicken tenders are super simple and quick for those hectic weekday meals. I've put them on top of a salad with homemade honey mustard dressing. They would also go great with some french fries. The variations are endless.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat Oven to 425°F.
  2. Mix chicken tenders and mayonnaise in a bowl to lightly coat chicken with mayonnaise.
  3. Mix bread crumbs and cheese in a gallon-size zippie bag.
  4. Prepare baking sheet with cooking spray.
  5. Put 1-2 chicken tenders in the zippie bag with the bread crumbs and shake to coat.
  6. Place chicken tenders in a single layer on prepared baking sheet.
  7. Continue until all tenders are coated and on the baking sheet.
  8. Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes. Gently flip each one, so as not to remove the breading, and bake an additional 8 minutes.
  9. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

Was in the store and the chicken and found this gem of a recipe. It turned out amazingly well, in fact surprised everyone in the family. Best part is it is baked (healthier than fried), really really fast and quick. I def plan to start tweaking my own very and experimenting with the ingredients. Upon reading the review and recipe, I used 2.5 pounds of chicken ($5 at grocery) and put in pepper and garlic in the mayo. And i put it for 20 min 10 on each side and the chicken came out very tender and juicy.

I tried this recipe in one of these afternoons and it turned out to be a great afternoon snack. I added some garlic powder into the coating and the chicken tenders were very nice and juicy after baking. I think the best part about this easy recipe is that I can try with different extra spices every time I make it.

Good recipe and easy I didnt use the mayo since I had soaked the strips in buttermilk also added a few spices for a little extra flavor. Thanks for something a little different.
