Baked Chicken Tenders


Baked Chicken Tenders

I love chicken tenders but don’t love all the oil to fry them with.  I have come up with my version but baked in the oven.  Using paprika and Romano cheese with the bread crumbs really enhances the flavors.  I use an Italian seasoned bread crumbs, if you have home made all the better.

This is a very easy dish to put together and I served them over Turmeric Rice and peas.

Ingredients:

1 lb. chicken tenders

1 cup bread crumbs

1/8 cup Romano cheese, grated

1 tbsp. paprika

Salt and pepper

2 eggs

Directions:

Season the chicken tenders with salt and pepper.   Place the bread crumbs, Romano, pepper, and paprika on a plate and mix well.

Beat the eggs in a bowl.

Place the chicken tenders in the egg, turning to coat all sides.  Remove the tenders allowing the excess egg to drip off.  Place the chicken tenders in the bread crumb mix and turn to make sure all sides are coated.  Place the chicken tenders on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with olive oil.  Bake the chicken tenders in a 370 oven for 20 minutes, turning half way.
