Baked Chicken Tenders


  • 1 pound (450g) chicken breasts
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs or panko
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooking spray or olive oil for greasing


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with cooking spray or olive oil.
  • Cut the chicken breasts into strips or "tenders" of desired size.
  • In a shallow dish or bowl, season the chicken strips with salt and pepper.
  • Dip each chicken strip into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off.
  • Coat the chicken strip with breadcrumbs or panko, pressing gently to adhere the coating to the chicken. Repeat the process with the remaining chicken strips.
  • Place the coated chicken strips on the prepared baking sheet, leaving a bit of space between each strip.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through, with an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  • Remove the baked chicken tenders from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
  • Serve the Baked Chicken Tenders with your favorite dipping sauce, such as barbecue sauce, honey mustard, or ranch dressing.
