Crispy Chicken Tenders🍗

 Oven Fried Chicken Tenders: 

This is the top of my kid pleaser menu. I whip it up when I have run out of ideas or patience ( either or both ) , when the kids come home hungry from school.

It works for a teenager and a toddler equally . I end up making it atleast once a week and I don’t hear anyone whimpering over lunch.

Ingredients : 

Skinless chicken breast – 3 ( cut it into uniform 1 inch strips )

Marinade :
Garlic paste – 1 tbsp
Pepper – 2 tsp
Salt – 2 tsp

Coat the chicken strips in the marinade for 20 mins.

Dipping mixture :

Beaten Egg – 2
Salt and pepper – as desired

Crumb coating :

Bread Crumbs – 2 cups ( powder bread coarsely in the blender )
Grated Parmesan cheese – 3/4 cup
Salt – if needed

Mix the crumb mixture ingredients together and spread it in a flat dish.

Method :

Preheat oven to 175 C .

Dip the marinated chicken in the dipping mixture and then coat it with the crumb coating and set aside .

( These can be referigerated at this stage or frozen )

In a lightly greased baking sheet, arrange the coated chicken strips in a single layer .

Bake for 15 mins turning once when 3/4th done, until golden colour.

Add a pinch of love❤️ :

Lightly spray some cooking oil or melted butter on the chicken pieces before baking for extra crispiness.
Bake on a wire rack with a metal cookie sheet placed under for perfect baking.

Serve hot with your favourite dipping sauce.
