My mom introduced this amazing recipe from https://www.acedarspoon.com/baked-chicken-fingers-2/ to me a few months ago, and it is AMAZING!!! We literally make it at least once a week! We tweaked it slightly….so I have included the link to the original recipe above and our version below. This is my first recipe post…so please give me grace!
Healthy Chicken Tenders
PREP TIME – 10 minutes

1 cup italian breadcrumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/3 cup extra light olive oil
1 pkg of chicken tenders (organic if possible)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray or use foil and then spray with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a shallow bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and stir until combined. Set aside. Pour the 1/4 cup olive oil into another shallow bowl.
- Dredge the chicken in the olive oil and then into the dry ingredients making sure both sides are coated. Place the tenders on the baking sheet.
