Feel free to adapt the seasoning in these crunchy baked chicken tenders to suit your taste. Nice options would be chili powder and dried herb blends such as Italian or Cajun.


  1. Heat oven to 450°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick foil or regular foil coated with nonstick spray.

2. Beat egg whites in a shallow bowl with a fork until frothy. In another shallow bowl, mix panko crumbs, cheese, paprika, onion powder and salt.

  2. Dip tenders first in egg, then press into crumbs and place on prepared pan. Coat generously with nonstick spray.

  3. Bake 10 minutes or until crumbs are golden and chicken is cooked through.
