  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • Oven


  • 2 Boneless Chicken Breasts Alternatively use frozen chicken strips
  • cups Panko Bread crumbs
  • ½ cup Mayonnaise can use flavored mayo if you prefer
  • 1 tbsp. Onion powder
  • ½ tbsp. Garlic powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set your oven to 375°F to preheat.
  • If you’re using fresh chicken breasts, cut them into strips. They should be about an inch wide.
  • Season the chicken strips with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In one bowl, prepare your breadcrumb mix. You’ll need to add the panko crumbs, the onion, and the garlic powder. Give it a good mix and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, pour your mayo ready for coating. If you want to add a bit of spice to your tenders, add a few drops of sriracha, tabasco, or chipotle sauce. Make sure to mix well.
  • Dunk your chicken strips into the mayonnaise making sure to coat them completely.
  • Transfer the strip to the breadcrumb bowl and coat in the breadcrumb mixture.
  • Place your strips onto the baking sheet. Make sure to leave a gap between each tender.
  • Cook your tenders for 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes, turn your tenders and cook for another 15 minutes.
  • Your tenders should look golden brown after 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve.
  • Try your tenders with ketchup, mayo, BBQ sauce, or honey mustard dip!
