  • Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Pat the chicken tenders dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper.
  • In a medium size bowl, whisk together the eggs and dijon mustard. In another medium size bowl, combine the panko breadcrumbs, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder.
  • Dip the chicken into the egg mixture, then toss into the panko mixture. Dust off any excess panko mixture and lay the chicken tenders on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat for the remaining chicken and spread them out on the baking sheet so they are not touching.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, until the chicken is golden. Enjoy immediately with any dip you like.


Make ahead: These oven fried chicken tenders can also be made ahead and frozen. After preparing the chicken according to the instructions, place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place them in the freezer for 2-3 hours. When they are frozen solid, you can place them in a ziplock bag and store for use up to 3 months later. When you are ready to bake, you can just add 5-10 extra minutes to the baking time.
