Chicken tenders are very easy and delicious to make at home. They cook quickly and stay moist and juicy. Coated with homemade breadcrumbs and from-scratch taco seasoning create a crunchy exterior and moist chicken you'll love!
1 1/2poundsChicken Tenderloinsrinsed (leave moist; do not dry)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set up three medium mixing bowls: one with the flour, one with the eggs and one with the breadcrumbs.
Combine all the spices in a small bowl and mix. Add to the breadcrumbs and mix thoroughly.
Dip a moist chicken tenderloin in the flour to cover; shake off any excess flour. Next dip into the eggs to coat allowing excess to drain back into the bowl. Dip the coated chicken into the seasoned breadcrumbs and turn to coat (or spoon the breadcrumbs onto the top of the chicken to fully coat). Repeat to coat all chicken tenderloins and place them onto the prepared baking sheet. TIP: Use one hand to dip the chicken into the flour and egg and the other to coat in the breadcrumbs.
Bake for 20 minutes and serve immediately to ensure a crispy crust.
