Crunchy Baked Chicken Tenders

I have been searching for healthier way to make fabulous and crunchy chicken tenders and/or chicken cutlets for a really, really long time. Last night I finally made them! And boy were they delicious!

These chicken tenders are baked and turned out with the crispiness and juiciness of fried.  I will certainly be making these every single time now. They will also be perfect to make Chicken Parmesan too with my favorite homemade marinara sauce as well.

INGREDIENTS

4 cups plain panko breadcrumbs

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

4 large eggs

3 pounds chicken tenders (2 packages)

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Toss the panko and coconut oil on a baking sheet with a rim.

Bake for about 5 – 10 minutes, stirring a couple of times, until it is a deep golden brown. Mine only took about 6 minutes to get it like to look like this.

Let cool completely. Crush the panko I little by squeezing handfuls. This will help the crumbs stick better to the chicken.

Place the flour in a zip lock or grocery bag and add the chicken to it and shake, shake, shake to coat well.

Whisk eggs in a bowl.

Dip chicken pieces in the egg, then coat with the panko, pressing to adhere.

Place the chicken on a wire rack that is placed on a rimmed baking sheet
