If you asked my husband what he’d love for dinner every night, crispy fried chicken would be his first choice.
My husband let them try KFC for the first time not too long ago and they are obsessed with that perfectly crispy crunchy coating.
Making these Oven Baked Fried Chicken Tenders at home means they can get that KFC fix whenever they want.
Plus they’re better for you with just a fraction of the fat. The best part about this recipe is that you won’t have to pull out that deep fryer either. These are pretty easy to make in the oven and with less mess to clean up.
To get that crispy coating, just mix some crushed Corn Flakes together with Panko crumbs. That combination gives you that amazing crunch that everyone loves.
Here’s the set up for making these Oven Baked Chicken Tenders:
- Fill three medium bowls with: flour, beaten eggs, panko crust mixture
- Add seasonings to flour
- Dredge chicken with flour mixture
- Dip chicken in eggs
- Press chicken in panko mixture
- Melt butter
- Add chicken – and bake in preheated oven.
And since they’re baked instead of fried, you can totally enjoy an extra piece without the added guilt! My little guy can never get enough.
Just serve it with your favorite dip for an extra tasty treat!
